The StarTribe Vision: For thousands of years, countless cultures all over the world have used dance as a way of opening doorways into a deeper consciousness, for revealing an ancient wisdom and transformative power unlike anything else. This is why, for StarTribe, dance is a path of personal development, making it an invaluable part of life. In much of the Western world, the scope of dance has become narrow and limited with the theme often being of noisy, unnatural nightclubs and bars which aren't exactly empowering, relative to what's possible. But there's a revival of late towards more meaningful dance - dance that takes place in outdoor settings, within a real sense of community, much like it was for millennia. This is StarTribe. Thousands of people have participated in StarTribe, and for the real spirit of dance. There's something especially moving and powerful about an entire community of people coming together for this experience, and you are warmly invited.
