Proceeds support Earthdance’s Diversity, Equiry & Inclusion Scholarship.

After over 30 years of study, Donna Mejia has galvanized a teaching practice that defies categorization, highlighting dances of the North African/Arab rural communities, Yoga, Ballet, American hip hop, and Brazilian Silvestre Contemporary technique. Inventive fusion, hardcore rhythms, precision hip work, and attentive bodywork feed the mix.

Each morning features three hours of bodywork (stretching, alignment, yoga, & somatic science). Each afternoon, we dance!

Our Sliding Scale: The fees to attend Earthdance Jams and Workshops are priced on a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.

Professional Rate: for those comfortably paying their rent or mortgage.The Professional Rate also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.

Full Rate: for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Earthdance's operating costs.

Subsidized Rate: for those with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.

Participant Community Support

As Earthdance runs as a​ community, all participants contribute to 1-2 chore shifts (typically meal cleans) throughout the Jam and a Final House Clean on Sunday, August 5th. These are great ways to connect more with your fellow participants, Earthdance staff, and to feel more at home here. We will be welcoming you into this collective home and thus so appreciate your contributions to our space!
