Festivals/ Workshops

International Festivals!
The Sacred Dance Guild sponsors International Sacred Dance Festivals which are celebrations of sacred dance attracting dancers of all levels, backgrounds, ages, and spiritual expressions. Participants come from around the world for a week of unique workshops, classes, performances, ritual experiences, networking and joyful dancing. All are welcome. See it for yourself. Watch the video to experience our Golden Anniversary Festival "Moving Mysteries" (2008) at Connecticut College.


Festival workshop leaders and faculty are among the finest in sacred dance and mind/body modalities, offering various dance forms from a unique blend of religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds.

Dancers and non-dancers alike share the opportunity to experience movement as worship, prayer, healing, meditation, as an agent of change, as a message of peace, and as recreation.
