Community Appreciation Day (FREE)

June 15, 2019 -
12:00pm to 9:30pm

Programming category: 

Who and what is the Earthdance community? For 33 years, this question has danced through our studios, made its way across the land, and filled our days with wondering. Built over three decades of dedication, Earthdance holds the care of hundreds—maybe thousands!—in its bones.

Earthdance also rests on the ancestral land of the Agawams, Pocumtuc, Nipmuck, Wabanaki Confederacy, and the Mohican Indians "People of the waters that are never still," specifically, the Stockbridge-Munsee Band.

While the Earthdance community carries many complexities, it continues to grow based on who and what finds their way here. As a holding space for this ever-changing community, Earthdance wants to throw open its doors for honoring and receiving community members of all kinds.

Join us for a day of community celebration and appreciation!

We will gather together to make sourdough pizzas in our cob oven, dance on the land, tell stories, sing, and dance into the night with amazing musicians. We are yearning to celebrate you and to remember that feeling of connection.

Join us for the whole day or drop in as you like. Families welcome!
