A Musical Interlude
January 30, 2012


Come see our very own Alanna Taylor-Tobin performing with not one, but two bands this Sunday in San Francisco!

A gal of many talents both on and off the dance floor, Alanna will be singing, strumming, drumming and more with her acoustic comedy quartet, Bugs In Costumes and soulful songstress, Lea Carey Grant.

Showtime is 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 5th at the beloved Bazaar Café (5927 California St. @ 21st Ave.) and you can visit Bugs In Costumes on facebook for loads more info.

It’s sure to be a super Sunday night. 😉 We hope to see you there!


First Performance of 2012
January 21, 2012

We’re so thrilled to be invited by the wonderful and talented Kathy Mata for our first performance of the new year!

Continuing our long tradition of volunteerism, community service, and bringing the joy of dance to under-represented audiences, Gnosis Dance Collective will be joining several other Bay Area artists for Kathy’s “End of Winter Celebration” to be held on March 4th at The Sequoias – San Francisco Senior Living Facility. We’ll be debuting a fun and frisky rendition of “Ain’t Misbehavin'” and it’s sure to be a blast.

And speaking of the new year…are you still wondering how to get moving on that fitness resolution? Why not dance! It’s never too late to begin at the beginning, no matter your age, profession, fitness level or previous experience. Dancing is the perfect way to revive your body, mind and spirit. You can check out one of Kathy’s highly acclaimed Ballet for Adult classes at Alonzo King’s LINES Dance Center and Carol Wei’s School of Dance.

Looking for a little extra inspiration? Here’s a great article that’s sure to get your feet tapping: “You’ve Grown Up, Now Dance!

Hope to see you on the dance floor in 2012!

Looking Forward
January 17, 2012


My, how time flies!

2011 was full of so many exciting transitions and transformations for us all- a year of both triumphant completions and new beginnings, of adventure, perseverance, invaluable life lessons and incredible creative collaborations…in other words, a year of gnosis.

And as we greet the new year together now, we find ourselves emerging from our cocoons and eager to spread our wings. Harnessing the power of our life experiences to fuel our passion for story-telling through dance has always been the essence of our creative process. It’s no wonder then that 2012 has us primed for new challenges, new opportunities and lots of new tales to tell!

We look forward to sharing our metamorphoses with you in the months to come, as well as showing you all the fun and secret stuff that we’ve been up to since you saw us last. So check back for updates and upcoming performances as we welcome 2012 with open hearts and dancing feet.

Happy New Year to you all, and thanks for being here!
