Lisa Michaels interviews Leslie Zehr about Dance as a Spiritual Practice
What students are saying:
“Leslie has very well broken down her dance course into digestible information along with practical exercises that are fun and reflective. It’s about dancing with depth and accessing one's multidimensional aspects (Physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) with curiosity and non-judgment. It is a wonderful practice useful for those who want to explore personal and spiritual growth through movement. I really enjoyed both the live and online workshop versions!”— Rawan Husseini
“I love how this course weds simplicity with profundity. Leslie has a wonderful understanding of what is foundational to a spiritual dance practice. From her building blocks one can plunge into the depths and fly to the heavens as you will. Great course!! Leslie's book also adds important embellishments and ideas for further dance practice strategies. It's a great help and inspiration.”—Charlotte Hussey, MFA, PhD, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
“Leslie offers a course that reaches you to connect to your mind, body and spirit through movement, sound and vibration. I greatly enjoyed this course and would take another if she offered.”— Paula Petri, Wisconsin
“The platform for the course is easy and organized. The practice itself has opened me up to another level of spiritual connection within myself.”— Robin Kimbrel Wiggs, Colorado, USA

Reconnect to Source through movement and Dance
Dance as a Spiritual Practice is taught by Leslie Zehr, Sacred Dance instructor from Egypt and author of The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer, designed to introduce the student to the elements of sacred dance and how it can be used as a spiritual practice.Through her book and classes, Leslie has taught hundreds of women the art of Sacred Dance.
The workshop is a balance of theory and practice. There is explanation with movement exercises to reinforce your experiences. This workshop is an opportunity to experience Dance as a moving meditation with no expectations about what it looks like, only what it feels like from the inside. You need not be a dancer or have any previous dance experience.
The practices are simple and fun, bringing the element of joy to your spiritual practice. You will leave the workshop with a very simple 20-minute movement practice that can be done daily.
