ABOUT TRANCE DANCE
Trance Dance is a unique blend of healing sounds, dynamic and layered percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana – together stimulating a ‘trance’ state that promotes spiritual, mental, physical and emotional well-being. Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an inner journey, not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years. Contemporary approaches to Trance Dance bring together the richness of these ancient rituals with some startlingly effective modern techniques. The use of a blindfold or bandana, which covers the eyes, shuts down the major source of distractions to the brain and stimulates an inner vision that reveals hidden meanings and answers to many of life’s most compelling questions.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.
