Portland Planetary Dance
with Tamara Gilbert
Saturday July 29, 10:30 am – 1:00 pm
at Kelley Point Park
Join us for our 3rd annual Planetary Dance!
We’ll gather in beautiful Kelley Point Park, which sits at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers for a family friendly movement ceremony and BYO picnic.
Planetary Dance is a dance with a purpose. It aims to bring peace among people and harmony with the Earth. We each dedicate our dance to someone or something in need of support (e.g., a sick or dying loved one, a troubled species, a child facing difficulties, etc.) before entering the dance arena.
As people run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles we create a moving mandala. By dancing to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body, and each step upon the Earth becomes a prayer for healing.
Planetary Dance was originally created in 1980 as a daylong ritual for the Mt. Tamalpais, California community by Anna Halprin, dancer/choreographer and early pioneer in the expressive arts healing movement. We are honored to continue the vision of this inspiring and potent Dance.
Advance signup is requested, $10.
