My favorite dance places/activities are Nia on South Congress and Body Choir on South Lamar. Following that would be salsa, which abounds around Austin.

Trance Dance In Austin
Trance Dance is a doorway. When we dance, we open a portal into another reality a way of seeing into the reality that is "bigger than us," an entry into non-ordinary reality, the Shadow, the joy. Sources of wisdom beyond reason and rationality. Spirit.

Dancing In Darkness
With our bandannas firmly in place, we intentionally eliminate a significant portion of our way of perceiving our reality. No longer engaged in the overwhelming experience of sight, our other senses become keener, awareness of body is enhanced.

Within the darkness, our inner experiences have nowhere to go and nothing on which to project, except the blank, black screen behind our eyes. What we see, what we experience is ... ourselves. No one is there to feed back our projections; nothing to tell us what is self and what is "other." It is all Self.

The music moves us, guiding our bodies with the heartbeat of rhythm and currents of melody. In the darkness, we know that we can be ourselves. No one is watching ... no one can see how we move, or who it is who is laughing or crying with themselves.

And we dance until the music stops. How long has it been?

Lying on the cool floor, we soak up the rich energy generated by the music and whirling of ourselves and the others in the Dance of our dances. Soft music plays. Someone says, "You may remove your bandanna," and we begin the journey back into the "real" world of external sight.

As we gather in the circle, we become aware that the dance is not over. It will continue in the nights and days to come: in dreams, in the little synchronicities generated by our intent.

Trance Dance In Austin
Trance Dance spiritual dance has been presented in Austin since 1995. Introduced to the area by Wilbert Alix, Director of the Natale Institute International, this introspective and transformational ritual experience is presented several times each month.

I went to a Nia class recently and it was a blast.
