Dance Camp Aotearoa
January 11 - January 17
Dance Camp Aotearoa is unique in that it interweaves the Dances of Universal Peace with elements of Maori culture. Experience the power and spirit of being welcomed to Camp through an opening ritual that reflects Maori custom, sharing breath through the hongi.
You are invited to come and join the co-creation of heart family and to experience the joy of togetherness, connectedness and a deep sense of community and intimacy that the Dances so easefully and gracefully engender. Experience the richness of cultural diversity, as leaders and dancers gather together from many different countries including Europe, USA, our sisters and brothers from Australia and, of course, Aotearoa. Our Camp has become known for its huge heart – many overseas visitors are deeply touched by our inclusiveness of overseas dancers and leaders.
The main focus of the Camp are the Dances of Univeral Peace, as practiced in many countries around the world. You can also enjoy early morning Sufi practices, participant-led workshops, kirtan, singing, drumming, free dancing, story telling, nurturing, yoga, and a fun adult-staffed program for children – or just take time out to be in bliss within heart-centred community.
