Festival 2012 Morning PrayerWelcome to our blog on Sacred Dance.  The place where we document our international explorations of sacred  gatherings that involve dance and  TRENDS! If you are a sacred dance fanatic, a scavenging soul, pursuing  the  underground, ancient practices of  worshiping the Divine through the  innovations, technology, and  hearts of the  21st century, this blog is for you. Please leave comments and let us know how you get  your 21st century praise on. We are always looking for writers to expand our knowledge and definitions of what sacred dance encompasses. We are here to support all participants in the sacred dance community.

Cherie Hill: Blog Creator & Lead Author

Esalen Institute Cherie Hill is a creative artist, dancer,  performer,  teacher, and scholar addicted to using  dance as a vehicle for praise.  Whether it’s in her modern technique class where she finds peace and calm in the release of muscles and the support from the earth, in her African dance performances where she leaps, smiles  and give thanks for all of her blessings, or when she goes out and engages in social dance & takes the time to tune into her body, she is always ecstatic to engage in dance & prayer.

Cherie is the creator of a somatic-based process called Movement,  Meditation, Mindpower (MMM), which blends studies of  Hatha yoga, Alexander Technique, Movement  Ritual, and Dance is Life Process developed by  Anna Halprin. She is a certified Planetary Dance  facilitator and a choreographer & dancer. Her choreography includes fusing Western contemporary and African Diaspora dance forms with black feminist standpoint theory, somatic principles, and spiritual practice. She received an MFA in Choreography and Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a BA in Dance and Performance Studies/African-American Studies from the University of California, Berkeley.
