SUMMER DANCE WORKSHOP: Dancing the Psalms & Songs of Creation 

Friday, July 19-Sunday, July 21, 2019

 

Join dancers, musicians, artists, liturgists, and poets of faith to dance and sing ancient psalms and contemporary songs that call us to creativity and prayer. Our work will remind us of our unity with all of Creation; will help us recharge our energies and commitment to renew the face of the earth.

In the spirit of "Laudato Si," songs and dances will be offered in thanksgiving and praise for God's Sacred Creation and our kinship with it. The days are full of dance, prayer, reflection, and fellowship. Participants will have the opportunity to offer the work of their days in a beautiful outdoor setting of St. Andrew's Abbey. Bring comfortable clothes to explore nature and to move with ease.

 

John West is an oblate of Valyermo and the founder of the Valyermo Dancers. A gifted dancer, choreographer, liturgist, and writer, he has been conducting dance workshops at St. Andrew's and Holy Spirit Retreat Center, as well as at international and national collegiate and university levels. His professional associations include serving on the board of the Sacred Dance Guild and as a member of the prestigious North American Academy of Liturgy.
