Blindfolded Contact Dance is a safe and gentle experience—great for both beginners and experienced dancers alike.
Wearing blindfolds allows dancers to drop the fear and self-judgment that often inhibits spontaneous movement and authentic connection to self and others. These workshops take participants on a journey of somatic self-discovery and non-verbal consent via solo and group exercises before culminating in an hour-long freeform blindfolded jam.
****We will open with a short circle addressing boundaries and safety. Please arrive between 6-6:30pm. This is closed container. Late arrivals will not be admitted and will not receive a refund.****
Part of the core ethos of BFC is "the whole room is your partner." That means setting aside your judgments, preferences, and biases and dancing with everyone in the space—including by yourself. We have a high expectation of personal responsibility and respect regarding consent and boundaries.

If you have a blindfold (or something that can be used as one), please bring it. Otherwise we will have some available.
We have a limited number of scholarship tickets for folks in financial need who are alter-abled, genderqueer, or people of color. Email us for a discount code if this applies to you.
Pre-sale ticket refunds available until 7 days before event. After that you are responsible for finding someone to buy your ticket.
