Dances of Universal Peace

From the "Dances of Universal Peace" in Albuquerque:
Amir has a master's degree in Percussion Performance from the University of New Mexico. A freelance artist, he plays drum set, vibes, and hand percussion with several Albuquerque bands. Amir is a certified dance leader and a member of the Mentor Teachers Guild.
The Dances of Universal Peace are a compendium of simple, meditative, joyous circle dances. They use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from many of the world’s wisdom traditions. The Dances have no performers or audience. No musical or dance experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome to join in. New arrivals and experienced dancers form the circle together. Participants join hands in a circle with the Dance leader and musicians in the center. Throughout their time together, the leader teaches the group the words, melody and movement before each Dance. Themes for the Dances include peace, healing and the celebration of life’s great mystery.
