A rental partner event held at Earthdance

We welcome a diverse community of dancers and somatic visionaries. This is a festival about play, vulnerability, and building community with embodied, emotional, and erotic intelligence.   It takes courage, compassion, and consent to play truth or dare with integrity.   Sharing one’s truth is an act of intimacy.  Being daring is about getting outside our comfort zones.  If we want something we’ve never had before, we have to do something we’ve never done before.  This is a space to explore our personal, tribal, and societal desires! What can dance, somatics, tantra, kink, Contact Improvisation, and communication practices contribute to our intimacy?  

Come ready to cultivate, express, and feel your desires.  Let’s get compassionate and curious about intimacy, sexuality, consent, emotions, gender, privilege, race, power dynamics, and inclusivity. There’s an emerging expansion of leadership in the U.S. to better include women, trans, non-binary, and people of color. There’s a growing community of people practicing new models of intimacy. We are shifting from an era of sexual abuse to an era of sexual liberation with accountability.  What can we, a festival of dancers, discover and contribute to these cultural shifts?
