Breath We start a trance dance with a short moment of intensive en conscious breathing. Blindfold In most of our dance activities all dancers wear a blindfold. Music The music takes you on a journey and allows your body to freely move, to ethnical sounds and electronic music from all over the world.
Trance Through our senses we can absorb about milliard bits of information per second. I had pushed past my doubts and fears of engaging in something unfamiliar and new.
I was to be changed completely by Trance Dance. Come dressed appropriately for dancing. Bare feet are preferred. Oh, and wear a blindfold! A blindfold?!? Yes, Trance Dance participants are blindfolded to reduce performance anxiety—no one will see you while your body expresses inner energies. The facilitators keep people safe while the dance ensues. They also keep energetic connection with the dancers and will use rattles, drums or other means to help dancers move into altered states and lose themselves in the dance.
It was fun, I enjoyed the music that I would select and most of all I felt better after. Amazingly I would somehow get guidance and information that would assist me in dealing with challenges that I had in my life.
Trance Dance sounded exotic and interesting but a bit scary. Some facilitators open a talking circle to begin the connection process. The perfect people for your personal journey will just happen to be there for the dance. Now you put on your blindfold, and the music begins. Pounding, compelling, dramatic—the facilitators have intuitively selected pieces that will draw you out of your Earthly consciousness and lead you into shamanic realms where you will meet guides, encounter power animals, experience healing, energetic changes, even fly.
As your body sweats and your feet stamp, you become more than a human being, your reality expands to encompass so much more. I also sensed that others were swirling ecstatically while some also stomped loudly.
My initial reaction was one of annoyance. What I was hearing and sensing seemed to be a hindrance to me being able to experience that trance state of mind. Someone moved close to me then I heard this chime ring out immediately followed by the sound of a rattle. This would change everything. I would soon experience that altered state of consciousness.
And in this new state of mind I no longer was annoyed but instead felt great love for everyone as we were all a part of the same dance. I was soon dancing and communing with my angels and guides and knew then that I had achieved a part of my intention.
This would be the first of many deeper levels that Trance Dance would take me. Like I had always been a belly dancer. Then I became a tribal woman displaying the most frenzied movements that a body could handle. Then there was the whirling deverish. Who ever knew that I could whirl and whirl without falling down or tripping on my own feet.
As the music pulsed in a repetitive rhythm. I knew then that Spirit my name for God was taking me on a journey to spiritual ecstasy. Slowly you sink down, stretch out, and let the processing begin, the integration of the experience, the information you have received, the energy you have released and regained. For some dancers this is when the journey truly begins.
All my extremities were tingling, and my heart was pounding as all of this energy was just coursing through my body. I felt myself being embraced by my spirit guides while my angels were waving their wings to cool my body which was burning up.
As I continued to lay there cooling breezes brought me back to the point where I knew that I was integrating all that I had just experienced. The dance was over and I was complete. This also allows participants time to ground their energies and begin to reflect on their experience.
All about Trance Dance. Anns 2 buildings after Normandie at Nook Avenue It is movement and while it can heal, it goes beyond. Trance Dance is something greater — it is spiritual evolution. Experience the ancient shamanic practice of trance dance using the breath of fire, visual sensory deprivation and driving rhythms as you are lovingly and gently supported in a deep inner-personal journey. The artist creates a painting by means of graphics — using markers and printing, moving along the itinerary "workshop - computer screen - typography" and paying attention to the articulation and continuation.
Like the term "acid Western" introduced by the critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, Oleg Ustinov's new series can be described as "acid abstraction" — a reassembled skeleton of abstract painting, the method of creating which is clear, technological and transparent, and the relationships within the picture plane balance between harmony and chaos, confirmed by flashes of bright colours.
