We are excited to bring the talented Andrew Allsgood to Cortes for the April Dance Temple!

A DJ of 25+ years and music obsessive since childhood, Andrew is of the belief that every moment in life deserves a soundtrack. A Long, storied history of music creating and sharing his selections behind the decks, creating events and an genuine reverence for Sound System Culture make Andrew a staple at music events and festivals across Vancouver Island and beyond.

A 5Rhythms and dance temple devotee and Dance Temple Cowichan contributor, Andrew loves to connect through musical vibrations, gathered in community. Whether as a dancer, conscious dance facilitator or both, Andrew’s creativity and enthusiasm shines bright.

Andrew is honoured to have been asked to lead Dance Temple’s on Saltspring Island, in Cedar, Comox and on Cortes Island. He has co-created the Intrinsic Dance ecstatic dance event series and co-leads Hearts of Darkness/Center Camp at Otherworld. In Short, Andrew is the living, breathing embodiment of Dance Music Culture and lives to share his passion with the world!

Dance Temple is a safer space for conscious movement, for authentic connection with self and others and always with mindfulness and consent. It is a place to allow our own freedom of movement to expand and grow in ourselves and be expressed though dance. This is a place for laughter and joy, tears and fear, prayer and release, where each of us can truly be how we are in the world and move in the ways that support and nourish us most.

Our conscious dance space remains:
- sober and substance free (as much as you are able)
- consent-based (we dance our own dance interacting with joyful consent when it feels aligned)
- conversation-free (so we can focus on the dance and talk afterwards)
Please avoid scented products, phones and outdoor shoes.
