What we’re about
Energize your spiritual essence as we dance and sing together! The Dances of Universal Peace (also known as Sufi Dances or Spiritual Dances) are simple, meditative, joyous circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants and movements from all the world's wisdom traditions.
Chanting and singing are powerful methods of connecting to spirit; moving with others magnifies this energy. As a circle, we create a powerful force for peace, love and harmony that radiates through our souls and out to the world.
Simple movements and songs are taught by trained leaders, and musicians provide live accompaniment. Don't worry about how well you sing, how well your body moves, or about getting the lyrics right. Just get into the spirit and that's everything.
No experience is necessary, no partner is needed and all are welcome!
Suggested Donation for monthly dance is $8, but nobody is turned away for lack of funds.
Please Note: To better accommodate everyone, all our events are "Fragrance Free"
Dances of Universal Peace were created in the 1960s by Samuel L. Lewis and since then have spread throughout the world. For more information about the Dances of Universal Peace, see http://www.dancesofuniversalpeacena.org/

We are thrilled to announce that the December Peace Dance will be outdoors in Himmel Park. The movements of the sacred dances stemming from all spiritual traditions will be taught along with the accompanying songs. The dance will be in the Southeast corner of Himmel Park in an open area off of North Treat Ave, near the intersection of North Treat and E. Hawthorne St. This is a free event, however donations are appreciated to cover costs involved. On the rare chance that it is raining at the time, the dance will not be held. Hope you can join us.
