Good morning. "Happy" Easter.
"I know everything is really intense right now and we're all cooped up at home and the world is so bizarre," Kate says. "And I know one of the things that's making me feel good and sane right now during this time is dancing. So I thought I would lead us through a little morning warm-up this morning. I think you should join me."
If after warming up you're interested in joining the 10 am Dance Church service this morning, instructions on how to do that are below.
Dance Church classes are every Wednesday 5 pm PST and Sunday 10 am PST.
Yes, that includes today.
You can join THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of people doing it around the world—literally!—by going here and signing up.
