JourneyDanceTM 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, participants gain a palpable experience of themselves as pure powerful energy. In JourneyDance, we dance without mirrors to release judgment of ourselves and others.
JourneyDance is not about learning steps, it’s about revealing, recovering, and rediscovering our natural intuitive movement. We activate the imagination and utilize diverse forms of freestyle improvisational dance to a soundtrack of inspiring and diverse music, creating a barefoot ecstatic celebration of the human spirit.
The Journey Dance Flow:
We get out of our minds and into our bodies. We connect our total surface area with the floor. We release, surrender to the earth, and feel supported. Through the Embodiment Series, we drop deep, trust, and ground ourselves.
We delve into our sensual bodies, awakening the spine and enlivening the fluid body. We discover internal space and enjoy the pleasure of sensation.
We immerse into sensation, exploring new movement potential and taking pleasure in experimentation. We begin opening and flowing into space. Warming the fluids and joints, we open and expand our energies.
We dance our funky, playful selves with partners. We experience feelings of confidence and playfulness within, and we invite a vibration of joy. We make exhilarating connections and feel the music in our core.
We are moved and inspired by evocative music. We tell our story to the dance floor in a unique personal expression. Waves of emotion allow us to contact our feeling of nature. We express and release, diving into our ocean of emotion.
We are guided in a dance of shamanic ritual. We access our power through release, purge, and sweat. We clear our minds of negative self-talk. We investigate, release, seek, and find guidance by connecting with our inner shaman and our self-healer.
We make conscious of our desires. The music gives us inspiration. The power of the group movement magnifies the ritual experience with sound and energy, empowering our bodies and elevating our vibration.
Free expression of wild abandon! Let go & let loose, see & be seen! Celebrate your essence! Enhance your positive vibration after the deep release work and live your joy!
Personal, sensual, soft-eyes dance. We feel the lusciousness of our bodies and manifest it through movement. We bring our desires down into the body with intention, becoming creatively sensual and flowing with total freedom.
We take time to listen to our heart's mystery, to express what is held back. We shift deeper into listening, witnessing the heart's whispers. We come into alignment with our true essence through expressive movement.
You are the prayer, your body, your movement, your breath. We give our attention to the soul's Source presence. We become the moving prayer in connection to self, others, and divine love. We are open to oneness.
We descend back into the support of the earth, melting into rest and rejuvenation. We settle into a state of expanded awareness, connection, and open intuition.
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music." - Friedrich Nietzsche
