“We can always smoke a lot of weed and get “high”, but what if the goal isn’t to get stoned, but to get Elevated? We can learn to use cannabis to elevate and deepen our experiences, allowing us to stay present while exploring and expanding ourselves and the world around us.”
— Brandon Anthony, Founder and Creator of CannabisDance+Fitness
Come move with us! This evening of free-flowing, body-rocking, and heart opening will begin with an opening reception hosted by Bloomfield, MONDO, and Remediem CBD, who will share products and help explain cannabis.

From the Movers ♥
“There is truly nothing quite like Cannabis dance + fitness. You tailor your Cannabis experience to your comfort level- from none to lifted. There is zero judgment either way and everyone is there with one goal in mind: to connect with their bodies in a mindful and meaningful way.
You release all of your inhibitions at Cannabis Dance and allow your body to be guided by the music. It’s a celebration of your existence in the purest form. There’s an almost primal nature to it in the most beautiful way.
Cannabis fitness is the counter balance to cannabis dance in the best way possible. You are focused, determined, and driven throughout the entire experience. You compete with your own doubts and come out on top, empowered by the knowledge that you pushed yourself to seemingly impossible limits ( that many burpees was a seemingly impossible task!!!!)
Cannabis dance and fitness is truly for everyone. It’s an experience that you can tailor to your own comfort level. Brandon’s ability to make each individual feel like they have grown in every way possible is remarkable. Discover your best self with Brandon at Cannabis Dance + Fitness!”
— Mindy, Teacher and Mother
"There's zero choreography and zero judgment--just an incredible musical set list and a safe space to groove, play, emote, connect, and move the way the music makes you feel. You'll leave a Movement2Music workshop feeling lighter, more energized, more inspired, and more in tune with yourself." - Diana
"Brandon’s Movement2Music classes are hands down one of the most amazing artistic and spiritual outlets out there. I haven’t experienced anything like it before. No matter who you are or what you are going through, being part of this class helps to heal and restore your mind and soul. Brandon seamlessly creates an open space with no judgment, no restrictions and ultimately no fear. His classes give you the freedom to explore yourself through movement. You don’t have to be a dancer or an artist to fully appreciate this class. It is literally for everybody and that’s the beauty of it. For an hour you’re welcome to share your journey with like-minded people who come together to give and take, celebrate and connect with each other and leave everything on the floor the good and the bad. It’s therapy in the most fun way as Brandon’s playlists are beautifully crafted to enhance and guide through the experience. I recommend this class to everyone. Trust me you’ll feel so much better and lighter after taking Movement2Music." - Michael
"It's a highly emotional and cathartic experience. Without the safety of choreography, you make yourself a little vulnerable and let the music guide you. There is no wrong step. There is no wrong move. No one cares or even notices what others are doing because everyone is so wrapped up in their own journey. At the end, everyone walks away having healed something that they didn't even know was broken. There's something beautiful about strangers coming together, creating art, and walking away better versions of themselves." - Mindy
"Brandon's Movement Classes are truly transformative! I've walked into class feeling like a general hot mess- sleepy, stressed, fatigued, depressed, anxious, frustrated and have walked out feeling like a completely different person, refreshed and energized. Brandon's philosophy of healing through movement is apparent as he holds space for people to fully access and enjoy their bodies. What a gift to have a teacher that truly believes all people deserve space to feel, to breath and to move!" - Lo
"I took Movement2Music with Brandon for the first time this past Sunday October 30th and WOW!! It was beyond what i expected. I have a dance background but have not taken classes consistently in years due to body image issues and just being in fear. Taking this reminded me of why I love dance. It connected me to the music and It became a moving meditation. It wasn't about what I could get out of the class it was about what I could give and how I could feed off other people's energy. Brandon made us all feel safe, seen, and he brought out our inner warrior. He guided us on a journey to self awareness and love and helped us dig deep and not be afraid about what other people think. I recommend this class to everyone! It is a safe space and so much fun!!!" - Viviana
