Earthdance Cape Town 2016 returns as full weekend event
Earthdance Cape Town 2016 returns in September as a full weekend event after last year’s single nighter.
It is also Earthdance International’s 20 year anniversary so 2016 is indeed an auspicious year for the party that focuses on peace and unity.
It’s incredible to think that two decades of Earthdance have passed and equally amazing to appreciate that Earthdance Cape Town 2016 will be their 16th such event, just three less than the international brand.
As a global event Earthdance has inspired positive action within the global dance community and has supported hundreds of charities across the world. The Cape Town crew have been at the forefront of this for years and are a shining example around 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.
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 is about protesting war (as important as that may be).
Two different dates across the globe
Earthdance Cape Town 2016 will take place on the weekend of 23-24-25 September 2016 at what has become their natural home for the event – Nekkies Resort in Worcester.
There are other global Earthdance events taking place on the weekend of 18 September:
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.
Earthdance Cape Town 2016 have opted for the second weekend.
There will also be new times for the Prayer for Peace this year.
The Prayer for Peace is the traditional global link up but this year there will be a 10 day effort to create a Prayer for Peace from the one weekend to the next.
