Laura Shannon Dance Workshop
April 23, 2018
Laura Shannon, will be offering a special one day workshop entitled Dancing for Gaia: Traditional Greek and Gypsy dances to honor the Earth Monday, April 23, 2018 following Neskaya’s Circle Dance Conference “Joining Hands” April 20-22, 2018. April 23 is St. George’s Day, originally a pre-Christian celebration in honor of Gaia, the Earth. Traditional Greek and Roma (Gypsy) dances can help us connect to this natural energy of awakening creativity and fertility and channel it with conscious purpose in our own lives. In this, we follow the ancient tradition of dancing on holy days for blessing and healing of the people, the place and the wider world.
Laura is known worldwide for her pioneering approach to traditional women’s dances as tools for healing and transformation. Traditional Greek, Balkan and Armenian dances embody an ancient worldview of sustainability, community, and reverence for the earth. Blending folk dance, circle dance and dance/movement therapy, Laura’s teaching seeks to rekindle this awareness and to rediscover the hidden wisdom encoded in the dances. With 30 years of experience researching and teaching, Laura is considered to be one of the ‘grandmothers’ of the circle dance movement, and brings her inspiring workshops, performances and trainings to over twenty countries.
