Find your muse through sacred circle dance! This year we will be dancing with the nine Muses of Creativity who dedicated their lives to the arts: Clio—history; Euterpe—musical instruments; Thalia—comedy; Melpemne—tragedy; Terpsichore—dance; Erato—love and poetry; Polymnia—divine hymns; Ourania—objects and stars; and Calliope—heroic poetry.
Sacred circle dances are moving meditations that embody and integrate mind, body, and spirit. These simple, gentle dances have special meditative qualities and ancient roots in music and dance from around the world. Powerful in their effect, they evoke a spiritual dimension leading to harmony and balance.
No previous dance experience is necessary. All dances are simple and each will be taught. Our philosophy of dance is “there are no mistakes, only variations.”
