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!

Dance Cards

New Pricing on Dance Cards
Embodydance Santa Fe will continue to offer dance cards into 2016, but not at the 2015 price. 2015 cards are offered at $80, and that price will increase to $88 in 2016. Either card entitles you to 8 dances. Even with the price increase in 2016, your cost will be well below the $12–15 suggested donation for each dance.

Year-End Tax Statements
Whether you buy a dance card now or later, there are more good reasons to purchase. Beginning officially in 2016, Embodydance Santa Fe will send you a year-end tax statement for total dance cards purchased during the calendar year. If you need a tax statement for 2015 card purchases, we may be able to honor your request…just ask. Your prepaid commitment to Embodydance is a helpful show of support

Gift Economy
Embodydance operates a “gift economy”—meaning that those who can afford to donate more than our asking price per dance do so, and those who cannot afford to pay our asking price donate less or maybe even dance for free. While the discounted dance cards are one way to pay less, many in a position to donate more may choose this method for accounting purposes. If this is you, please know we appreciate your additional cash donations over and above the cost of the dance cards.

As a non profit, we welcome your end of the year donation. Please consider going to the website www.EmbodydanceSantaFe.org and making a donation via card or PayPal. Click on the donation button.

Giving Thanks
Embodydance is alive in Santa Fe thanks to each and every one…showing-up, engaging in the dance, and making donations of time, talent and funds. Blessings to all.

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.

One Response to Saving Sundays

  1. To explain the Embodydance money situation a bit more, here is a link (http://embodydancesantafe.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/20132014FullYear.pdf) to full year profit and loss statements for 2013 and 2014.

    ED lost $389.86 in 2013 and lost $3135.58 in 2014. You can see where the money is going.

    The extra (beyond fixed) expenses for putting on a dance are $90 for rent, $180 facilitation and $55 for coordinator, or about $325 per dance. On Sundays we often don’t bring in that much, and that’s OK as long as Thursdays cover it. We are not trying to make money but to continue to offer two dances a week to the Santa Fe.

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.
