Paint Dancing was created in 2005 for the purpose of openly expressing yourself for fun in 2 different mediums - AT ONCE!
Paint Dancing sponsors supply the non-toxic paint, brushed and paper! All you need is your paint clothes (and shoes) and you are ready to PAINT DANCE! Paint Dancing is a safe, supportive and fun environment. The best news is; you don't need to know how to paint or dance to participate!
Paint Dancing was founded by internationally known abstract expressionist painter and hunger awareness activist, Matt Jones.
