What is JourneyDance™?

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. JourneyDance™ calls us to heal, get physical, and connect with our inner resources to step into our highest potential, reconnecting us with our innate states of joy, well-being, and pleasure.

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.
