The Planetary Dance - Developed by Anna Halprin
The Planetary Dance is a ritual of healing and community renewal. It brings people of all ages and abilities together to “dance for a purpose”, much as people in traditional cultures have danced fora bountiful harvest, a successful hunt, or a happy marriage.
The planetary Dance is a participatory dance. At its heart is the Earth Run, a simple dance that everybody can do. Participants are invited to run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles creating a moving mandala. As we all move to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body. Each step upon the Earth becomes a prayer for healing.
