Welcome to the Dances
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple circle Dances using devotional movements inspired by the spiritual traditions of the world.
Each Dance is based on a sacred phrase which is sung by the group. They are a form of body prayer; a moving meditation in song and dance.
Through the Dances we can connect with others and directly experience the gifts that the spiritual traditions offer. They help us to remember our source in sacred unity and open us up to experiences of healing, peace, harmony and renewal.
The movements, words and melody for each Dance are always taught from the beginning by the Dance leader. Beginners are welcome. You do not need to be a singer or dancer or to have any particular knowledge or belief to do this.
