What we're about

Every Thursday from 6:30–8:30pm at the Railyard Performance Center in the heart of Santa Fe, EmbodyDance has held open an invitation to drop into profound, intentional connection with Self, community, the world, and with Source. Come dance your prayers, sweat your becoming, move in freedom to a musical wave or journey, sometimes in the spirit of "five rhythms" (5Rhythms®) - with which we are not formally associated, but always new and now. Attendance is usually 60-80.

And if all this spiritual connection and presence stuff isn't for you, then just come and get your freaky groove on. Namaste, for real.

We circle at 6:25, warm up until 7:00, when begins our full 1:15 hour set: slow, unwinding beats, rising to heartbeat, then faster rhythms to a letting go of tribal proportions, and then back down through playful into soft and soothing (often times partner dancing for those who choose) and into meditative, complete melting. Each wave-set is unique, facilitated by an experienced community member who may suggest a theme or state an intention, though there is no instruction or direction but the Muses once the music begins. We circle again at the end for share-back – a chance to speak and be witnessed, share names, and close.

Your first dance is offered free and a $15 donation is requested thereafter, with sliding scale and work-exchanges available (see website, embodydancesantafe.org (http://embodydancesantafe.org/), to sign up). No one is turned away, and everyone can afford to contribute something.

Participation guidelines: Soft feet (no street shoes but dance slippers OK); vocal but non-verbal space; fragrance free; drug- and alcohol-free; respecting our own boundaries and those of others; offering our full Selves to this evolving co-creation.

We will also be holding Special Event dances, mostly on Saturday nights, which will be announced at circle and by email here.

If you're new to our community and/or would like to have input on any question, concern or creative improvement, we welcome you to get involved: volunteer via the website for one of the open positions; submit feedback; or attend a Community Council meeting (minutes posted on website every two weeks).

EmbodyDance Santa Fe is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization.

Railyard Performance Center

Current attendance: about 60 *conscious, ecstatic* dancers. Since the beginning of the millennium, every Thursday from 6:30–8:30pm at the Railyard Performance Center in the heart of Santa Fe, EmbodyDance has held open an invitation to drop into profound, intentional connection with Self, community, the world, and with Source. Come dance your prayers, sweat your becoming, move in freedom to a musical wave often in the spirit of "five rhythms" (5Rhythms®) - with which we are not associated. And we do not teach and there is variety in the unique programs our Facilitators create every week. And if all this spiritual connection and presence stuff isn't for you, then just come and get your freaky groove on. Namaste, for real. We circle up just before 6:30, then warm up on a mini-wave until 7:00, when begins the main event: Beginning deep and slow, the tempo and energy increases, reaching a shattering, dissolving release point, opening into a lighter expanse, then winding down and resolving into a cohesive sense of wholeness and completion. The Facilitator may suggest a theme or state an intention, though there is no instruction or direction but the Muses once the music begins. We circle again for share-back – a chance to speak and be witnessed, share names, close. Donation requests are waived on your first visit and a $12 to $15 donation is requested thereafter, with sliding scale and work-exchanges available (see website, http://embodydancesantafe.org and sign up to Volunteer). No one is turned away, and everyone can afford something in contribution. Participation guidelines: Soft feet (no street shoes but dance slippers OK); vocal but non-conversational space; fragrance-, alcohol- and drug-free; respecting our own boundaries and those of others; offering our full Selves to this evolving co-creation in safe space. We also hold special events which will be announced here as separate Meetups. EmbodyDance, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, community-owned and -operated.
