Feel free to bring your own yoga mats for stretching or lying down. * All ages welcome! Young children must be supervised by parents/guardians. * New-comers welcome and encouraged! If this is your first Dance with us, we strongly encourage you to arrive by no later than 8:00 p.m. sharp for a helpful and brief orientation.  This really helps to get everyone clear about how we can participate fully and have the best time possible at our dance. * Important Guidelines and Tips *  1. We kindly ask for a Talk-Free dance floor. This allows for people to go deeper into their Dance and connect with their journey through the Elements. (Side conversation is welcome in the tea area or very quietly just off the dance floor in the "Chill out zone".  More robust conversations, please take into the adjacent room or outside.  Thank you for respecting the space.)  2. Dance however you want. There is no right or wrong way. Listen to your body and move to the way it feels. Express who you are from the inside out.  3. Respect yourself as well as those around you. Pay attention to your boundaries and the boundaries of others. Communicate through eye contact and body language. Be compassionate and aware. If it becomes necessary to use your words, please feel free to do so in a respectful way. Many participants find meaningful interactions on the dance floor which both surprise and delight. 4. Bring extra water - Mainly recommended for those who get very thirsty while exercising, or have a cold.  5. Wear clothes that make you feel good and are comfortable for dancing. Be expressive and colorful if you like, or just show up in your sweats. It's all good! Dancing barefoot or in socks is fine. Shoes are ok, but heavy tread shoes or heals are not allowed. Most dance shoes or slippers are great.  6. We are a clean and sober venue.  No drugs or alcohol, outside or inside the body. 7. Please, do not bring cameras to the event.  Personal photo/video without express permission (from subjects and the organizers alike) is not allowed. No live phones on/near the dance floor.These guidelines are for everyone's assurance of privacy and feeling of safety.8. ALL ages and genders are welcome.  9. Be yourself!  * Even MORE about the Dance *   ~ IF YOU HAVE NEVER ATTENDED BEFORE... Please take a few minutes to read to the end. ~  As a community, we recognize that we can learn and grow by witnessing and supporting one another through our shared expressions of each elemental energy.Let's work those edges together, and return ourselves to a life of deep trusting.  Rediscover and liberate your heart of hearts together through dance! * What to expect when you arrive *  Arrive to soft music. Check in first, and then quietly find a place for your things. You may choose to be welcomed with a cleansing/smudge (smoke-free mist). Relax, breathe and stretch as others arrive.  We will be called together for a welcoming circle, speaking of our names, brief orientation, and grounding meditation. Then the dancing starts.  There are several "stations" throughout the venue to help you with being present during the Dance.  1. Drumming:  There are an assortment of drums/shakers available for you to play. You may borrow available instruments or bring your own. (Remember to remove rings/bracelets.) Please attend children. The goal is to support the dancers by adding to the energy of the music. Sensitivity and awareness is key to holding the energy in the room... If you are new to drumming, please ask for guidance.  We are happy to provide this as a growth opportunity and chance to try this form of expression in alignment with the Dance. 2. "Tea" Area:  Need a refresher? We have a lovely table with healthy snacks to help re-energize and 'ground' you.  A great place to chat quietly as well.  3. Chill out zone:  Need to be still for awhile? This is a cozy space set aside for meditation/stillness.  4. Healing:  Feeling tapped? Reiki Practitioners and experienced Energy and Body Workers from within our community are often available to offer their care to re-energize and align the participants.  If you are a practitioner willing to offer service, please contact an organizer for further details.  (What a great way to highlight your personal practice.) 5. Community Altar:  This is a space for you to focus your energy and intention or to draw inspiration from during the dance. You may bring something to place on or near the altar if you feel called to do so.  6. Community networking area:  This surface is available to you so that we can get to know one another better. Bring your business cards and brochures, event flyers, freebies, etc.  Please take a moment to look through the materials during the evening and collect anything of interest. Seek and ye shall find.  * Closing Process*  At the end of the night, we usually end with a simple Heart Sharing with a few words spoken by those who wish to share what they experienced and any gratitudes, etc. There is also time allowed for community announcements before we part. Remember, you are free to bring flyers for your events/services and put them on the community networking table as well.   "Dance Elemental"TM  - DevaGnosis 2007 ************  Yours in service, Dakini Uma Amitabha - Directorc) 425.577.3296
