For one month, join EP for a gentle guided dance class. This weekly class is free (donations only) and open to adult men and women (ages range from teens to elders). Dress comfortably – dancing barefoot is encouraged. The class is inspired by NIA, which is based on the JOY OF MOVEMENT. All are welcome.
