Dance to cultivate joy, community, wisdom, and your inner knowing.

So many people come to our dance circle and say “this is like church for me….or what I wish church looked like!” Embodied, connected, and so very alive!

Our practice is guided by Laura Shannon‘s pioneering research on the earth-based traditions from the Balkans and Asia Minor. The dances are our guides and inspiration for finding a deepened sense of connection in community and for building an intimate relationship with Mother Earth. Through dance we practice living in deep connection to all of life so that we can create lives of right relationship and joy.

Class Participants Share Their Enthusiasm

Joining these classes and learning this practice of dancing has been one of the best gifts of my whole life. I’m so grateful for Emily and that I followed my heart to this!


Even when I am feeling so emotional about all the things happening in my life I can come to class and feel safe and I always leave feeling uplifted. I cherish the joy of being nurtured by the class.


I’m having great fun attending your class and feel more energized in my life as a result! Just, thank you…!
