A Dance for Peace among Peoples and
Peace with the Earth.

This community ritual—created by Anna Halprin in 1980—is a participatory dance in the spirit of the powerful traditional rituals that brought communities together for a vital purpose, such as calling for rain or a successful harvest. Its underlying purpose is to advance Peace among People and Peace with the Earth. Additionally, each Planetary Dance has a theme that addresses the moment. The dance itself involves a simple run or walk, so people of varying ages and abilities can participate. Anna said, “When enough people move together in a common pulse with a common purpose an amazing force takes over—a power that can renew, inspire, teach, create and heal.”
