Sacred Spaces is for anyone who wants to enjoy the freeing, joyful and communicative power of DANCE! Our workshops are enveloped in richly textured, improvised live music fusing guitar, atmospheric electronics, voice and poetic imagery with sizzling world rhythms. With inspiring music, a beautiful candle-lit atmosphere and sensitive guidance, we create a magical, safe space for people of all backgrounds to explore the freeing and powerful language of movement.

We begin each workshop with a breath meditation, designed to quite our minds, bring the focus inward and release tension. Moving from the meditation into movement, we leave a lot of space for participants to explore their own dances of stretching and awakening - giving plenty of time for dancers to sink into their movement.

As the night unfolds, with ever-changing music to support shifting moods and images, facilitators Monica Favand and Samantha Persoff offer various movement structures and imagery (that offer opportunities for dancers to explore solos as well as duet and group dances), as well as plenty of space for dancers to follow their own impulses and dive into the music.

Go deep, get wacky, vent stress, feel graceful, dance in pure joy - the music journeys through rhythmic, atmospheric and melodic passages, supporting continuously transforming moods.

No dance experience is required to attend the workshop, just a willingness to be in the moment and let the body take over!

The TRIP Music Ensemble has been playing music togethor for the past nine years - offering an improvisational journey inspired by and supporting the dance. The musicians offer gorgeous ambient landscapes, joyous world percussion and soulful vocals. Surprise instruments and guest players frequently add to the blend.
