What is JOurneyDance™?

 

JourneyDance™ is a dynamic conscious dance form that combines freestyle and structured movement to inspire you to get out of your mind and into your body.
 


The JourneyDance™ Flow
 leads participants on a ritual journey of physical and emotional transformation. Through breath, sweat, and expression, you gain a palpable experience of yourself as pure powerful energy.



In JourneyDance™, we dance without mirrors to release judgement of ourselves and others. JourneyDance™ is not about learning steps, it’s about revealing, recovering and re-discovering your natural intuitive movement. We activate imagination and utilize diverse forms of freestyle improvisational dance, yoga, ritual, theater, and shamanism to a soundtrack of inspiring world music, creating a barefoot ecstatic celebration of the human spirit.



JourneyDance™ is a dance that is facilitated rather than taught. Certified JourneyDance™ Facilitators have completed three modules of intensive training, including instruction in the composition of the JourneyDance™ Flow, a deep exploration of the rituals contained within a JourneyDance™ experience, a personal growth component designed to bring their full selves to their teaching practice, and an apprenticeship program with designated JourneyDance Mentors to ensure full knowledge and understanding of the JourneyDance™ body of work.

 

 


WHAT HAPPENS DURING A JOURNEYDANCE™?

 

JourneyDance™ moves us through deep, personal exploration into a loving, intimate relationship with body, mind, and energy.  See the JourneyDance Flow for a description of the qualities of JourneyDance.


 


We embody through grounding movement, feeling the total surface area of our physical bodies in contact with the earth. 

 

We experience sensual awakening as we unleash animal energies and expand our awareness. 

 

We enliven our funky, playful self and connect with other movers in community.

 

We explore our inner realms to express ourselves, dive into our ocean of emotion, and tell our story to the dance floor.


We empower ourselves and each other to liberate old cellular memories and cleanse the body and mind with sweat and breath.

 

We elevate our vibration and embody our hearts. 


Travel this sacred and provocative journey, this hypnotic evocative flow, feel bliss, and reconnect with your innate state of joyous well-being.
