What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
The name of this retreat has a special meaning. Alex dedicates a year of his teaching to celebrating the memory of his teacher Anna Halprin. Anna can be considered a pioneer of contemporary use of dance for personal growth and healing. it is her legacy is the inspiration for the retreat.
We will explore different levels of relationships (from ourselves all the way to the Universe!) as well as our personal history. Anna Halprin's brilliant techniques and structures - such as self-portrait, polarities, including natural environment - will support us on our journey. We will also hold Anna's Planetary Dance, a collective ritual of peace and healing as part of the retreat. Anna wanted to leave the Planetary Dance as her main legacy.
Sundance (Turkey, the nearest airport is Antalya) is one of our favourite spots. We will have two beaches, lots of beautiful nature and a wonderful dance space. It's a unique place hidden away from mass tourism where we can be immersed in nature. www.sundancecamp.com
