"Trance for a Change is a dance event and ceremony in which we, by dancing together will try to change fear of the unknown to openness and curiosity towards the unknown. When dancing together and going into a trance, one produces a natural hormone in the body called oxytocin. This hormone has many good effects, some of them are that they reduce fear and create confidence and generosity towards others.
In the ceremony both personal and global fear and aggressions will be transformed to more open minded and embracing ones.
We will dance for openness, we will dance for welcoming refugees, we will dance for those in need of inclusion.
In Trance for a Change, we make use of ideas from traditional ceremonies in which dance is used as tool to change or effect a situation. We believe that dance has this power.
So come and join us and dance!"
