Dance in Transit will entice all kinds of people out of their homes, whether new to dance or already part of the dance community, whether they are young or old, shy or socially awkward, new to the area, newly retired, recently divorced, feel restricted by health issues, or immigrants. We are not just another dance school or event promoter. We are community builders and activists who foster community development and cultural diversity. Dance and music can help bring our community together to create stronger ties between us!
We believe social partner dancing is a way to connect with people who feel excluded from their own communities. It is also a proven way to increase fitness, and improve brain functions and quality of life more than other activities like yoga, cycling, hiking, running, and crossword puzzles. Dancing increases neural pathways like none of these other activities can and it has the added bonus of helping people to find friends and forge relationships they would not have otherwise. The community we envision will also support networking for employment and business opportunities.
