~ last dance of the decade ~ 2020 energy / a new decade begins ~
This New Years Eve we gather as tribe to dance across the threshold into a new year and decade! This is an all-ages, alcohol-free, community gathering to honour and celebrate the closing of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
In the beating heart of Bristol, within a magnificent church, you are invited to join together to ignite visions, prayers and intentions. Dance to healing depths and ecstatic heights for a night of illumination and celebration. We will dance to remember what is meaningful, feel the power of unity and feel the simple sweetness of belonging to a humanity that celebrates this miracle of life.
You are invited to acknowledge, release and honour the year of 2019. We will then individually and collectively ignite visions and set intentions for 2020 and a new decade.
Our line-up of resident and guest artists are offering a high vibration celebration to support this magnificent gathering. The evening will include heart-expanding circle songs, an Ecstatic Dance journey, DJ sets, live music, an acoustic sound bath, live 3D visuals, high vibe food and drinks, massage, chill out space and more...
Our international guest DJ (on her UK visit) will be playing organic electronic beats and world bass intertwined with nature inspired sounds. Annaliese Hordern is a stage dancer with Deya Dova and uses her dance experience to create DJ sets that activate your dance journey to really come alive.
