Welcome to the Dances
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple circle Dances using devotional movements inspired by the spiritual traditions of the world.
Each Dance is based on a sacred phrase which is sung by the group. They can be described as a form of body prayer; a moving meditation in song and dance.
Through the Dances we can connect with others and experience the true
heart of many spiritual traditions. They help us to remember our source
in divine unity and open us up to experiences of peace, harmony and renewal.
The movements, words and melody for each Dance are always taught from the beginning by the Dance leader. Beginners are welcome and do not need to be singers or dancers or to have any particular knowledge.
