Dance into Joy: A New Year’s Celebration of Release and Renewal

For everyone.

From the whirling dervish to the Shakers, from the waltz to the rave, people have always danced for joy, cleansing, clarity, and transformation. Come dance into the new year, following the lead of your body and breath as you let go of the past year and make space for new beginnings.

Through a combination of movement, relaxation, meditation, guided visualization, and journaling, you gain fresh insights about the past year’s journey and learn how to intuit your way into 2020 as you

  • Explore ecstatic movement and deep stillness
  • Get fully into your body
  • Cleanse from your core through your pores
  • Free and refresh your mind
  • Rely on your body’s wisdom to inform your new direction.

A New Year’s Eve dance party culminates in ritual celebration, anchoring your new intentions. On New Year’s Day, receive a community blessing to affirm your relationship with yourself, your work, and your dharma.

Note Please bring comfortable clothing (layers are recommended), a journal, and one small object from nature to represent you. Festive attire that you can move in for New Year’s Eve is optional.
