Core Dance presents Planetary Dance
A volunteering campaign for Core Dance.
About This Campaign
Time Commitment: 9:00am-12:30pm (3.5 hours)
@ Hermann Park Conservancy, 1700 Hermann Dr, Houston, TX 77004
The Planetary Dance, in its 39th year on June 2, 2019, is an annual dance of healing and community renewal. It brings people of all ages and abilities together in a beautiful setting to dance for a purpose. The Planetary Dance Community invites people all over the world to join in a dance for peace in their own communities and peace with the Earth.
The Planetary Dance is a participatory dance rather that a theatrical performance. At its heart is the Earth Run, a simple dance that everybody can do. Participants are invited to run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles, creating a moving mandala. As we all move to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body. Each step upon the Earth becomes a prayer for healing.
6-8 volunteers are needed to help direct participants to the event location, engage with passerby about the event, and assist with the distribution of flyers.

Campaign to Support Core Dance
Core Dance creates art, facilitates art-making, and engenders art engagement for those seeking to connect with what makes us uniquely human: our intellect, our emotional body, our spiritual center. The body is our playground, movement our building blocks. Within our bodies resides the whole of life, every truth. Through dance and the process of creating it we activate that which makes us individually unique and connect it to that which makes us indivisibly One. Core Dance was founded in 1980 by Sue Schroeder. We call both Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX home. We cultivate dance awareness and education nationally and internationally through our three organizational initiatives: Core Performs, Core Presents and Core Connects. Core Performance Company, the professional contemporary dance company of Core, is internationally acclaimed for its emotionally lucid and instantly accessible work.
