For Beginners

Welcome to the The Philly Tribe!

We are a multi-modality dance collective offering a variety of conscious dance classes and workshops in the greater Philadelphia area.

If you are new to conscious dance or The Philly Tribe, you are in good company :-) In any class or workshop, there will be people with a wide-range of experience, from newcomers like yourself to committed dancers and teachers. The best way to begin is just to step out onto the floor and see what happens. 

Please scroll through our Home Page to get an overview of our vision, read our Class and Workshop descriptions to find out more about our offerings & refer to our Calendar at a Glance to see our full schedule, read our Dance Floor Etiquette page for a sense of our rules of conduct for creating a safe place for all dancers & check out our FAQ for a sense of our history, and sign up for our Newsletter to get up-to-date information about our tribe!

Our home location is Summit Presbyterian Church, 6757 Greene St., in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia.  We also have satellite classes and workshops in other locations. Please check specific class and workshop listings for location, times, pricing, and other important information.

For more information about the teachers and artists who bring you these events, please see our Tribe-holders page.

We look forward to moving with you!
