Earth Dance Cape Town 23-25 September

Sadhu Sensi – Saturday 24 September 12:30 – 2pm

✩ ✩ ✩ 20th ANNIVERSARY ✩ ✩ ✩

This year Earthdance International will be celebrating its 20 year anniversary.

As we take a moment to reflect on the incredible two decades of Earthdance, our hearts overflow with deep gratitude and love to all the incredible people who have supported us over the years. Earthdance is truly an event that reflects the “power of the people”, an event that belongs to the global community. Unlike any other initiative, Earthdance has inspired positive action within the global dance community and has supported hundreds of charities across the world.

✩ ✩ ✩ THEME 2016: GLOBAL SHIFT ✩ ✩ ✩

The twentieth anniversary theme is “Global Shift” signifying the beginning of a new era of deep peace-making and true environmental stewardship. Earthdance is one of many peace organizations, groups and projects that align with the International Day of Peace – 21 September. In this varied field of activist and public service groups, Earthdance combines music, community, social consciousness, support of charities and activism, asserting that peace is as much about living fully and thriving, as it is about protesting war.

– Different Dates .. What’s this all about ? –

In keeping with the theme and celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Earthdance International, Earthdance promoters around the world can CHOOSE between TWO weekends either side of the International Day of Peace. So if you see other Earthdance events in other cities on the weekend of the 18 September 2016, they are not wrong, they have just chosen the first weekend :)


The Prayer for Peace / Global link up to other Earthdance events around the globe will take place at 2AM on Sunday morning (Saturday Night).

✩ ✩ ✩ CAPE TOWN 2016 ✩ ✩ ✩

✩ ✩ ✩ 3 DAYS – 2 NIGHTS – THE FULL WEEKEND ✩ ✩ ✩

For 2016 we are going BACK! Back to the full weekend format of yesteryear, a full 3 Days and 2 Nights of collaboration, music, magic and peace.

We will also be putting more focus on the core that has supported and made Earthdance Cape Town what it is today and more importantly kept it going through all these years.
