Last Year's September Dance: 
Eat, Dance, Pray ~ in reverse order!
A bit of Dance Etiquette
Maintaining the sacredness of the dance space by a responsive, quiet, & prayerful attitude allows us to rise to great heights of joy & heartfelt connection with each other & the Divine.  Singing & dancing with respect for all spiritual traditions, we harmonize with each other and radiate peace to the world.  Listen in silence the first time the leader sings the song, even if you know it -- and especially if you don't!  Immerse yourself in loving energy, becoming one with all.

When first invited to join the Dances of Universal Peace, I was skeptical - even cynical - about the prospect that dancing together, looking into each other’s eyes & singing sacred songs could have any effect on my world.  What I experienced, though, was a deep connection & loving kindness among the people with whom I danced.
