Muse is a Bellingham Fusion dance venue. Fusion is a type of social dancing which pulls from many different dance backgrounds such as Blues, Swing, Tango, Zouk, Salsa, Ballroom, or whatever else our dancers bring to the floor. We are a community who values communication, consent, connections, and creativity.
We are always delighted to include new people, and anyone who is willing to respect our dancers, organizers, and space is welcome to join us! No experience or dance partner is necessaryas we set aside time for a lesson and practical before we turn the lights down and play music for the social dance.
Contact us with any questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are the leadership team of Muse Bellingham. We have all been part of the overall Bellingham Dance community for several years (in fact, between the five of us we have 30+ years of dance experience!). We love to dance tango, blues, swing, salsa, contra, micro, and fusion, but are always happy to try a new dance! We’re delighted to have the opportunity to dance in such a beautiful studio and to be running this fusion venue!
Yoga of Sound is a new event that Ruby and Loren are collaborating together to bring to you. Loren’s background as a musician combined with Ruby’s yoga background will make for quite the night. Ruby will guide you through gentle yoga warm ups (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation while Loren plays the flute in the background. Yoga nidra (guided relaxation) will prepare your body to fully let go, segueing into an hour long sound journey. You’ll be immersed in the healing vibrations of at least 18 crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, a handful of flutes, a gong, and chimes. This special event will leave you feeling more grounded and restored and will help clear your mind, subconscious, and will activate your body's natural healing systems.
More Info. on Sound Healing
The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound, that is, everything is vibrating and has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration. Some of the key aspects of this modality include resonance theory, cosmic superimposition, five star geometry, solar harmonic/fibonacci/solfeggio scales, and ideal nervous system tuning through the perfect 5th interval (the proportion 2:3 which the human body is designed upon). Use of meditation, vocalization, mantra, and interval training are some key components of this modality.
On Sunday June 24th, will offer a half day, more immersive type of event like this that we’ll allow people to go deeper and include a sacred cacao ceremony as well.
Please join Deanna Clasby's two hour Somatic Integration Workshop; Somatics as Clairvoyance.
We will explore Somatic Awareness as a means of accessing the Clairvoyance, Clairaudient, & Clairsentient aspects of ourselves. To see, hear, and feel with clarity we decipher & differentiate the body’s physical & energetic signals. Translation of our intuitive & psychic knowings serves as a guide through the decisions of our lives. This helps us be the person we want to be in this world, and do the good we wish to do.

Though still a couple weeks away, summer solstice, which spiritually symbolizes our own rise in consciousness is just around the corner. The energy and light of the coming season combined with the stress relieving and meditative benefits of sound healing will allow participants to reset themselves and clarify their intentions. The evening begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy a version of yoga nidra (guided relaxation) segueing into an at least 35 minute long double gong bath. Sounds of quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, and chimes will also be trickled throughout the event.
$50 advance, $60 at the door
Yoga of Sound immersion has come from the previous sound journeys Ruby and Loren have offered together. It will be an extended version of the Yoga of Sound events with the extra treat of heart nourishing cacao.
We will begin with breathwork, vocalization, toning, and chanting to establish safe and equal space, set intentions, and create a sacred container together. Ruby will guide the group through yoga warm ups and a short Kundalini Yoga set (mixed levels) and meditation while Loren provides intentional sounds to support the practice. Yoga nidra (guided relaxation) will prepare our bodies to fully relax as we move into an hour and a half long sound journey. You’ll be immersed in the healing vibrations of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, flutes, gong, and chimes. This immersion carries the intention of deepening into our experience of self awareness and sacred sound, allowing a clear mindfulness to emerge, softening into our subconscious, and accessing our body's natural healing capabilities.
More Info. on Sound Healing
A Sound Circle is the physical experience of receiving the vibration of instruments and voice with the intention of healing, empowerment, and integration of one’s Divine Being. Weaving a sacred container of safety, love, and ancient wisdom to help support a journey beyond ego-consciousness and into the light of our highest potential. By using the access point of the sound current to merge with the Universal Energy Field we engage our essential Self and conceive new inner sources of vital creativity, guidance, power, and self-knowing.
The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound in that everything is vibrating and thus has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration.
More Info. on Cacao
Cacao is a plant native to Central and South America that has been used historically by the Aztecs and Mayans for medicinal and ritualistic purposes. Its scientific name Theobroma cacao actually means “food for the Gods” and it was believed to have been sent from the heavens as a gift to mankind.
Most cacao that you come by today has been processed and roasted in such a way that it loses most of its health and spiritual benefits. Ceremonial cacao however is cultivated and prepared in the traditional way so that it retains the spirit of cacao as well as its remedying properties so that it can be used in ceremony.
