Experience a Theology of Dance retreat! We interweave talks, discussion and reflection with quality dance instruction that focuses on building lead-follow skills. You’ll learn why dance is such an effective analogy for understanding our faith life and for loving God and neighbor while you build relationships with those in the TOD Community. Retreats can be tailored to different groups such as couples, schools or youth. Your retreat can run from 1/2 day to a full weekend. Retreats are good for groups of 30 to 150. A great option for a retreat is to end with a dance party.

Retreat Payment and Financial Aid
In certain cases we require a deposit so that we can cover travel costs. Payment of travel expenses is non-refundable. All other payment can be done the day of the retreat, although you can pay ahead of time and that payment is refundable.
In line with our mission to spread the Gospel we offer financial aid for retreats.
If an outside group is scheduling Theology of Dance we will offer a discount based on financial need. However, we do require that for such retreats that, at a minimum, all of our travel, room and food costs are paid for by the group scheduling us.
If Theology of Dance hosts the retreat we offer the same policy as our classes.
there may be additional costs based on travel
