CREATE YOUR FESTIVAL with 4 dance floors running every morning & afternoon. Choose your favourite workshops from an incredible selection.

Between dance sessions is yoga & guided relaxation and at night we gather for ecstatic dance & ceremony, or, you can kick back and relax in the Chill Tent. 


This year we have a stream of workshops running through the festival that explores 'how can we use our embodiment practices to deepen & expand our sense of fulfilment in relationship with others?' The workshops some teachers created in response to this prompt are highlighted with a rainbow banner.

with Jade Ferriere

Science has recently revealed 6 biochemical compounds in Cacao that have the ability to nurture our movement practice in ways you can only begin to imagine! With potent levels of ethanolamides (NAEs) for feelings of intense bliss, polyphenols for mental clarity, tryptophan for sensations of joy and happiness, tryptamine and phenylethylamine (PEA) for feelings of intense satisfaction, embodiment and spiritual awakening - cacao makes an amazing companion for any dance!


In this evening gathering we will sit and sip cacao, awaken insights into the therapeutic properties of this plant medicine before immersing ourselves in a soundscape that offers freedom of movement and expression. Your gateway to bliss!!

Day 5 



In our closing session, we will dance and move together as a whole community and harvest the gems that have emerged for each of us during the festival. This session is designed to help us integrate our experiences, insights, visions and dreams for possible next steps.  It will also be a time to celebrate and lean into the support of new and renewed collegial relationships as we prepare to re-enter the world, empowering each other to hold fast to our visions, hopes and dreams, and bring a sense of grounded closure to our time together.
