Everyone Dances LLC is a company that believes that, everyone in his or her own way, can and should dance. To that end we have developed classes, workshops and presentations for dance lovers of all abilities: those who are ready to dance and move gingerly across the floor as well as those who are out of shape, have sore feet, are in a wheelchair, have two left feet and just about anyone you can think of.
Since 2007, when EveryoneDances first came to mind, it has taken several different forms but it always had the same basic philosophy - whether you use your feet or not; if you sit, stand or dance from a lying position; no matter your age, size, ability or any other 'reason' that you may think you cannot dance -
If you want to dance...DANCE!
Today Everyone Dances LLC is the parent company for several types of classes, workshops and presentations that all focus on dance, movement, music, imagination and play. We love to dance with you and to create wonderful times when everyone dances.
Come join us!
These classes, presentations and workshops/playshops all take their name from our parent company, EveryoneDances LLC.
The structure of each Everyone Dances class/presentation can be in many forms and settings – ongoing classes; as guest presenter at a Retreat or camp; a one-time gathering to celebrate our awesomeness – will be modified and adapted to fit the purpose of the gathering and the abilities of the dancers in attendance.
Kathy Woods has shared Everyone Dances for years to people of all ages and abilities - at arts camps, in schools, at retreats, Senior Living facilities and recreation departments. Men, women and children find the presentations and classes uplifting, enriching and just plain fun!
The circumstances regarding Covid-19 has altered our schedule and the way we can present our classes, workshops/playshops and presentations. We're looking into new ways to connect and create our dance events. If you're interested in dancing with us, let's hear from you. Contact us below.
A dance-based program
for your body, brain & spirit.
Dust off your dancing shoes, put on some good music and let’s dance.
Inviting people 55+ to share the JOY of DANCE.
The physical benefits of movement and dance are well documented. Seniors can improve their energy, flexibility, posture and acquire a sense of achievement by dancing.
For brain health “...dancing is beneficial for our brains because it combines cardiovascular exercise with split-second decision making that taxes our neural network, forcing it to create new pathways."
Connect with others in the community.
Kathy has been invited to be one of the mentoring artists for the Indianapolis based organization, ARTS WITH A PURPOSE.
This past summer she gave several Presentations at Adult Day Care facilities in Indianapolis using Ageless Grace, then My Music My Memories to rest their bodies and stimulate their minds, and ending with Everyone Dances teaching choreography and doing free dance.
It is a pleasure to share Ageless Grace, dance & music with these awesome people.
...a class filled with love, acceptance, joy, music and our amazing dance.
Kick away your fears
Butt off your excuses
Accept your dancer's body and
I know what it's like to have sore feet and other pains in my body. I also know how it feels to be overweight, to feel old and simply to not "look like a dancer". I also realized that almost everyone can dance - that everyone's dance is individual and wonderful because we are all individual and wonderful.
If you want to dance...DANCE! And I'll dance with you.
Our classes begin seated and, depending on each one’s ability, we dance next to our chair for balance and then remove the chair to move freely in our space OR simply remain dancing from your chair.
Many different dance forms and styles are included in each class.
The beauty, grace and technique from Ballet
The fun 50's Dance moves
The smooth and easy feeling of Soft Tap
The expressive Waltz
Exploring Rhythms/body drumming
Entertaining Musical Comedy moves

LET YOUR SPIRIT DANCE
An Inter-generational Workshop/Playshop for families.
EveryoneDances offers an inter-generational PLAYSHOP designed for
families to come together to connect, create and celebrate.
The Playshop uses dance, creativity, rhythm, improvisation,
story-telling and more to create a series of family fun activities with:
"Paper Plate Percussion"
“Strike Up the Band”
Expect to play, laugh, sing, dance and use your imagination as you share your ideas and connect with each other.
This Playshop is something that I feel very strongly about -
I'm Kathy Woods Founder of Everyone Dances
I love to Connect, Create, Celebrate.
My life has been filled with discovery and exploration of movement, music and dance – teaching in studios, gyms, schools, at arts camps, in continuing education, senior facilities and recreational environments.
I have danced my whole life, taking lessons and majoring in dance at college. I have designed and produced seminars and workshops, choreographed, created movement programs and coached other dance teachers.
I love creating experiences and environments in which people see, feel and sense how awesome they actually are. Let's dance!
