Here is a listing I pull together of monthly dance happenings in the Nashville area, as a volunteer effort to help strengthen connections among local dancers and dance groups. If you would like to be added to this and be able to submit listings, click here to subscribe. 

Greetings Dance Community,

As we push through this challenging time, I hope you are finding ways to keep dance in your life. It is times like this when societies need artists more than ever; we hold a mirror up to reflect on what is happening, we speak out against injustice, we create art that ideally imprints on both the heart and the intellect and promotes positive change. We connect people to their humanity. And we need that so desperately right now.

Please remember to utilize the Facebook Nashville Dance Community Page for postings and last-minute additions. I re-post all relevant dance events, classes, etc. posted on that page. Post your dance event to the FB page and I will add it to the page’s events. Online comprehensive listings are here. Instagram #NashvilleDanceCommunity

This is a gathering of events I am aware of and by no means represents all that is going on in the Middle TN area. I provide it as a volunteer service to the local dance community as part of an effort to help us stay connected and support each other by raising awareness of local dance performances, workshops and events, and rely on those on the list serve to submit the listings.
