Dancing for Freedom: Melbourne
Fusing global music of all genres, we celebrate the sacredness of our bodies and cultural diversity in a communal dance space towards a bigger, planetary intention for healing and hope.
With acclaimed DJ and music producer Ben Temple Step, and Madhu Honey and Liarna Conder as our facilitators, we will stomp shake and sweat our prayers and finish with a sound bath and meditation to integrate the experience. Ben Temple Step offers his unique combination of DJing, original Music, live performance, sound healing and ceremonial sound design, guiding the dancer through a global dance journey of planetary ethnic cultures and beyond.
This is our chance to embody and weave together a collective prayer to send out to humanity and healing.
May we honour our bodies and our authentic expression. May we dance for those who are unable to dance. May we dance for liberation and freedom!
