Chakradance Awakening (Crown) with Beth Schmaltz
Saturday, July 15th, 10:30am – 12pm
The dance of the crown chakra is a devotional dance. Cultures from every continent have embraced some form of religious or spiritual dancing. In ancient Shamanic practice, dance was used to commune with the Spirits, whilst in Ancient Egypt there were certain ritual dances that were crucial to the successful outcome of religious rites. The Tantric Buddhists of Nepal have an ancient dance tradition known as Charya Nritya, a Sanskrit term meaning 'dance as a spiritual discipline'. In CHAKRADANCE we open the gateway to the soul through a meditative sacred dance. This is the most paradoxical of dances: it is the dance of stillness. Often there will be little physical movement visible to any observer. The dance is internal, for now it is the soul that dances, dancing with the gods.
About Beth: Dance has always weaved its way through my life. I remember dancing to Broadway music as a small child. In church I performed liturgical dance and I couldn't wait for the dances at school – so much fun to get out there and move! My soul is happiest listening to music and my inner child surfaces and is healed when dancing. The timing was perfect when I saw an advertisement for Chakradance. I was immediately drawn to it and knew it was time to dance again, not only for myself, but to share my love with others. Chakradance is about taking supreme care of yourself — opening, moving and cleansing the energy centers in your body. I feel I have come home to myself and I look forward to sharing and nurturing others with Chakradance.

The studio is in the first building on the right. Up the stairs as soon as you turn left into the parking lot. The sign is not visible from the street. You will see the bay window with the hip scarfs hanging in the windows.
