The Planetary Dance is an annual all-day ritual of healing and community renewal inviting people all over the world to join in a dance for peace in their own communities and for peace with the Earth. People of all ages and abilities come together in a beautiful setting to “dance for a purpose,” much as people in traditional cultures have danced for a bountiful harvest, a successful hunt, or a happy marriage.

The Planetary Dance is a participatory dance rather than a theatrical performance. 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.
