Event Description: “The Planetary Dance is a dance that transcends cultural and temporal barriers, a dance that speaks to the community that makes it, and a dance that addresses contemporary issues as they are experienced by all people on this planet… It has a purpose: to make peace; it is a dance of peacemakers, a dance that makes peace with itself, makes peace between the performers, makes peace with the sprit, and ultimately makes peace with the earth.
The Planetary Dance is an invitation to people all over the world to join in a Dance for Peace in their own communities and for peace with the Earth.
It brings people of all ages and abilities together to ‘dance for a purpose’. The dance is simple, following a pattern which allows all to participate.
“It's going to take the willing commitment of enough people to say we will heal this earth. Every step is a prayer, and we must pray together for the healing of the earth... The circle is an act of unity, and the four directions give it stability. It's the squared circle which is the archetypal mandala of harmony.”- Anna Halprin, Moving Toward Life: Five Decades of Transformational Dance, p. 200, �1995, Wesleyan University Press
