Welcome to Embodydance—Dancing your Journey from the Inside out

For more than 15 years, Embodydance has created community through gathering together in Ecstatic Dance—considered a sacred practice by many of our members. Every Thursday from 6:30–8:30pm and every Sunday from 3–5pm at the Railyard Performance Center in the heart of Santa Fe, Embodydance provides an opportunity to drop into profound connection with self, community, the world; with Source. We encourage you to come dance and move in freedom. Find out what it holds for you by experiencing the dance for yourself.

Discover the rich possibilities within and without…

We honor the path to ecstasy Gabrielle Roth mapped out, but we are not a 5Rhythms® dance community. To find out more about how we are different, read the “What We Are & Aren’t” page. Come dance with us!

Saving Sundays

There are many ways to participate and help our Embodydance community to thrive and continue to provide this beautiful service of dance “from the inside out” to all of us. Sunday dance is in jeopardy of closing down for lack of financial sustainability. We can keep it going for longer until we work out viable solutions to keep it happening if we receive donations over these last months of the year.

We will be asking dancers if they would prefer our Sunday Dance to be at the same time of 3–5 PM or at the earlier time of 12:30, an option we are exploring that may become available after the first of the year.

We are grateful to Tracy Juechter for her recent donation of $500 and to Guthrie Miller for paying for Katharine and Makasha Roske to facilitate our Community meeting on Sunday 8th November where the issue of Sunday Dance was discussed.

Embodydance is a non profit under the IRS, section 501 (c) 3. Our Federal ID# is 20-3562235 and our fiscal year is Jan–Dec. Your donation is tax deductible and will be of tremendous assistance at this time

There are many ways to donate. The easiest is to click on the PayPal button on our website.

You can bring a check or cash to dance and we will send you a receipt. Tell the Greeter that you are making a donation and want it to be recorded. We will have forms at the desk for your information. You can mail a check to Embodydance Santa Fe at

P.O. Box 33781 Santa Fe, NM 87594                                                             www.EmbodydanceSantaFe.org

If you would like to be on our Promotion and Sunday Task Force teams to help promote Embodydance and save Sunday Dance, please let us know, either via the website or email Julie Glassmoyer at julieg2001@gmail.com

Thank you so much for your support.

Special Free Sunday Dance

Next Sunday (November 8), the regular 3pm Sunday dance will be replaced by an abbreviated and free 1-hour dance (Alec has generously offered to contribute his facilitation), followed by a brainstorming session, mostly about correcting the fiscal imbalance, so we can continue a second dance. Everyone interested in Embodydance, regardless of their money situation, is particularly encouraged to attend.

The exciting thing is that Katharine and Makasha from the Hummingbird community in Mora (http://lwww.livingcocreation.com) have agreed to facilitate. They are world class leaders in co-creative community.

This will be an introduction for us to their approach possibly leading to their facilitation of our “envisioning workshop” later this year.
