Creative Partnering: Sarah Peller & Chaz Hillyard

  • Madrona MindBody Institute 310 Fort Worden Way Port Townsend, WA, 98368 United States (map)

Have you ever been interested in structured partner dance like Salsa or Swing, but it seems too confined? Too structured? In this class, we learn how to dance with a partner and how to communicate clearly, without giving up your sense of self or your own creative expression. We won’t teach “steps”, but show you how to add your own dance style and foot patterning ideas into a partnership that feels connected and jives together with groove and style! No partner or experience needed to join this class.

This class is based on Fusion Partner Dance, a free-form creative new form of partner dancing that allows both partners to express their inner dance together, even if they have completely different dance backgrounds. To find out more about Fusion Dance, visit our website at


Before Nov. 30th: $30
After: $40
