This is a place where Families can be themselves.
TheFamily Dances Home Studio is where we practice, perform, train, rehearse, teach, facilitate, gather, and share.
In this space we nurture, develop, and serve multiple creative expressions and community interests, including capoeira, dance, creative movement, homeschooling and self-directed education discoveries, birth work, writing, and performance art.
Our home studio is family-centered and family-accessible. That means that we structure the space, programming, and scheduling with families in mind, and especially families like us with small children in mind!
We are constantly experimenting with, discovering, and evolving our strategies about how we produce and facilitate classes, workshops, and events that truly serve the whole family.
We are very passionate about cultivating a welcoming environment for other parenting artists who engage in their creative practices with their children as collaborative partners. And for this reason—and also because of who we are as a family—children are always welcome here (with their adult, of course!), and our children will always be here too.
Located in the Brightwood area of northwest Washington, DC, our home studio is easily reached by several major bus lines, and the Takoma metro on the red line is not a far walk. There is ample street parking.
Unless otherwise stated, all events on our calendar take place at the home studio. Because our studio is also our home, we do not post the address online. Once registration is received, the address will be sent.
home studio collaborations
Did you know Members enjoy 2 complimentary hours of studio space per month for rehearsals or meetings?
Our space is ideal for intimate groups of dancers, movement, theatre and performance artists, musicians, birth workers, and homeschool families needing a family-friendly environment to rehearse or meet. We give preference to parenting artists and family groups who would benefit from an open-flow rehearsal space where children are welcome to move freely in and around the space.
It’s important to us to partner with other parenting artists and family groups who really vibe with the spirit and intentions of our space. If you would like to apply to use our home studio for your group’s rehearsal or meeting space, please submit a request with the form below and we’ll follow up with the application.
