A Time Of Coming Together
We are not just a dance studio! We are a member of community and we offer our space, connections, and love up for all through community workshops and programs each month. Check back here and our postings on location for what’s coming up at Ascendance for you!

Mother-Daughter Self-Defense and Assertiveness Training Workshops
Relationship and community are based on a fundamental sense of safety, and while we can all benefit from learning more about how to establish safe boundaries for ourselves, this workshop is an opportunity for Mothers and their Daughters to learn self-defense and assertiveness from Spirit of the Heart’s inspirational Nancy Rothenberg.
Based on the same curriculum as Nancy’s STRONG™ program, this regular workshop integrates a shared experience for multiple generations of women. Just like the general STRONG™ program at Ascendance, this workshop is free for families with students taking regular classes and $20 per mother-daughter pair for others.
