Welcome to the Sacred Dance Guild – come dance with us!
The Sacred Dance Guild is a spiritually diverse, international, non-profit organization with a commitment to advocate for dance as a sacred art and to promote dance as a means of spiritual growth and integration of mind, body and spirit. On behalf of its members, the SDG furthers these goals by being an umbrella under which all those inspired by the many forms of dance and the many expressions of the sacred gather, sponsoring and providing sacred dance programs and resources, and by promoting sacred dance events of the organization and its members.
During this time when we are personally, collectively and globally dancing through the days with our hearts cracked open, the SDG will be offering SACRED SUNDAYS – a weekly gathering on Sunday evenings (EDT) to connect on line – to be SOCIALLY PRESENT while staying PHYSICALLY DISTANT. Check the Calendar or Facebook page for details each week as we continue to dance on waves of grace together.
This week’s Member Highlight!
JEAN ERDMAN, on Monday, May 4th, SDG honorary member Jean Erdman, has danced on at the amazing age of 104. Jean was a dancer, choreographer and director – a legend who had a genius for combining dance and myth. She was a principal dancer with the Martha Graham Company from 1938 to 1943 and came to wide notice as a choreographer in the 1940s. She later created performance pieces for the Theater of the Open Eye, an avant-garde New York stage she founded in 1972 with her husband, Joseph Campbell, the scholar of literature and myth. She collaborated with many distinguished artists including John Cage and Merce Cunningham. Jean presented at the Sacred Dance Guild Festival held in her home of Hawaii in 1995.
