Welcome to Dancing Lotus Center!

-The Lotus Flower-
The lotus flower represents growth grounded in the muck rising through emotion (water) and blooming into the world to be as beautiful as it is born to be. We honor, recognize, and respect the beauty in everyone and everything.
Our unified vision is a collaborative approach to physical fitness, therapeutic movement and mental health. Our instructors and therapists are accomplished and passionate in their craft to guide seekers toward health, wholeness, and well being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Dancing Lotus Center Located?

We are conveniently located downtown on the walking mall (next to the Parrot). We have two entrances, one on the walking mall at 40 North Last Chance Gulch for classes in our upstairs studio and one at the back of the building at 40 Hibbard Way for classes in the downstairs studio.

Why Choose DLC Over a Gym?

Dancing Lotus Center is more than just a place to “get fit.” While we advocate for and support healthy physical bodies, we also believe in healthy emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. We offer a space for health and wellness on all levels in a non-competitive environment where all are welcome and supported by our amazing community of instructors and students.

What Should I Wear?

The most important thing is to wear something you’re comfortable to move in! It varies by class, but dressing in layers is a great way to make sure you have enough or can shed if you get warm. If you want to wear shoes for one of the dance classes (which we encourage if you want to!), please make sure they’re indoor shoes so we can protect our floors and maintain their longevity!

Is There a Place to Change?

Yes! We have dressing rooms in both our upstairs and downstairs studios.
