Dance is a spiritual channel, an opening of metaphysical and sensuous doorways. Every dancer knows her goal: to get to that point where the body no longer stands in the way but becomes the instrument of the soul’s expression, the body, and psyche working together.
The feelings of joy, hope, renewal and spiritual connections that we can experience through sacred dance are not always felt by the beginner. A period of discipline and training, a shaman’s journey. Gradually inner and outer worlds fuse, and the dancer can move beyond conscious concern with the physicality and perfection of form.
When we arrive at this place we are connecting with the music and the mystical and the ethereal, surrendering to a power that uses us. We are danced!
