Join Us For the Dances of Universal Peace!

What are the Dances of Universal Peace?
The crowning life achievement of Sufi teacher and Zen master Samuel L. Lewis, the Dances set scriptures and sacred phrases from the world’s spiritual traditions to music and movement. 

Offered in an atmosphere of safety, authenticity and mindfulness, the Dances evoke a unified experience of movement, sound, breath and sacred phrase. They invoke an embodied sense of unity, presence and compassion, touching the spiritual essence within each of us.

Do I need any dance experience?
No musical or dance experience of any kind is required and everyone is welcomed to join in. Participation, not presentation, is the focus. No special attire is required and dancers need not bring a partner. Most Dance phrases are only four lines long and repeated many times, so learning is usually quick and easy - within ten minutes dancers are moving, singing and sharing together.

Where and When do we dance?
We host Dances on the first Friday of each month at the Gates of Heaven Synagogue in James Madison Park at 302 East Gorham Street, Madison, WI. MAP

We dance from 7-9pm, with time to socialize and get to know each other after that. A free will donation of $10 is suggested, but first-time visitors are welcome to join us without making a donation.
