CONSCIOUS DANCE AOTEAROA / NZ
20th - 23rd November
A four-day gathering for all who love to dance their own dance
There is a timely wave of people in Aotearoa/New Zealand finding deep joy and unearthing their fullest potential through conscious movement practices. If you are one of them or are curious to discover why conscious dance is a growing movement, then this gathering is for you. Surrounded by natural beauty you can create your own weekend, choosing from a smorgasbord of cutting edge conscious movement and dance arising from Aotearoa/NZ.
Following a sold out first ever gathering of conscious dancers in April 2019 we are excited to be back for Conscious Dance Aotearoa/NZ 2020, 20th - 23rd November. Up to three session times are offered each day and you can choose from different workshops running concurrently. Workshops will be taught by a wide range of teachers sharing the best from their respective practices. At night we will come together to celebrate, dance and share. There will also be ample time to connect with others, immerse yourself in the lush surroundings and eat delicious vegetarian/vegan organic meals. A range of accommodation options are available depending on your needs.
Full programme can be found here.
Conscious Dance can include modalities such as: Open Floor tm, 5 Rhythms tm, Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement, Body-Mind Centering, Therapeutic Dance, SomaSoul, Core Connexion, Ecstatic Dance, Soul Motion, Halprin Life/ Art Process, Dancing Freedom, Nia Free Dance, 'it doesn't have a name yet but I know it is good'...and many more.
