What we're about

This group is dedicated to women yearning to connect more deeply to their source of feminine wisdom and embodiment through women's traditional dance rituals. Through the exploration of authentic traditional dance and sacred movement we will cultivate deep joy, embodied healing, authentic connection, divine inspiration, and feminine vitality in service to ourselves and our communities. No dance or movement experience is necessary!
