Welcome to Beach Dance
Aloha and hello! I’m glad you’re here.
Beach Dance is a unique and fun way to experience free-form movement to emotive and exhilarating music in a beautiful outdoor venue. Creating your own dance and having the freedom to move your body the way it wants is a powerful thing. Dancing in community with others in nature makes it profound. If you love to dance and you love the beach, this may be something you’ll want to experience. Read on!
The Story of Beach Dance
Beach Dance was launched in June 2008 on a cool and cloudy day along the north Oregon coast with fifteen dancers. It was created out of my love for the ocean, ecstatic dance, and community. During the past six years, more than seven hundred people have participated in this experience of music, movement, and nature merging with one another. For the first four years, weekend events were held during the summer months in Cannon Beach, Oregon. In January 2012, Beach Dance events began in Maui, Hawaii.
Weekly events are scheduled at various locations on the island and happen year-round.
For many participants, Beach Dance is more than a form of exercise or a unique way to play. It is an opportunity for creative expression, cathartic release, spiritual connection, and for the unexpected to be experienced. Events are fun, welcoming, and free of charge. Whether you live on Maui or you’re visiting the island, I encourage you to learn more about Beach Dance by exploring the pages of the website. More importantly, I invite you to check out the schedule of upcoming events and come participate in the experience of Beach Dance.
I hope to see you on nature’s dance floor soon!
