Solstice Blessings ,

“Solstice means “sun stands still,” as at the darkest time of the year the pulse of life stops for a timeless moment, before the light can return and renew the energy of people and the Earth.” Michael Meade

As the light gradually returns we have some special upcoming intergenerational Living Arts Dancewaves. Our next two Sundays will feature local DJ’s mixing live + musical accompaniment and some special treats.

While this time of year can be complex for many, we hope to hold space for the full range of life experiences.

keep an eye out for 2024 announcements including Contact Improvisation classes, NEW Kids Dancewave and Saturday night Living Arts Dancewave (Jan 13th) returns!!

If you or a loved one are seeking a restorative experience, consider the opportunity to give and receive the gift of relaxation and care at the Durham Salt Cave. We offer services on a sliding scale; visit our website for more details. Use the code BREATHE20 to receive a 20% discount. (See more below).

Living Arts Dancewave – Sunday @ LAC

@ Living Arts Collective
410 West Geer Street

This Sunday 12/24, we have a special Dancewave with a live dj set by DJ LoMain and live instrumentation by aubrü roze!

Inspired by Ecstatic Dance through the lens of Ousia (oo-see-ah), the Living Arts Dancewave is an immersive dance experience with curated music woven in a wave format.
Living Arts Dancewaves are inclusive and intergenerational spaces for people to move freely and express themselves creatively. The Living Arts Collective facilitates experiences that are welcoming of all ages, physical bodies, cultural backgrounds, identities and dance abilities.
We stand in authentic, lasting solidarity with our BIPOC & LGBTQ+ friends and family.Dancewaves start slowly, build to a peak and then return to stillness, during which time you will get to experience the euphoria of music, rhythm and connection.
We co-create an environment intentionally free from verbal conversation and cell phones to support a more fully embodied experience.The Dancewace experience lasts for 90 minutes, during which we encourage you to take care of your wellbeing, to move at the pace and in ways that feel best to you, and to honor other’s by always seeking consent in your interactions with others.

11:11 am arrival
11:33 am Opening Circle
1:11 pm Closing Harvest Circle followed by Restoration of the Space

We invite you into the cave, into a Salt & Sound Experience (our signature offering) where you will be ushered into this internal space, supported in your journey towards rest and well-being. Let the sounds and vibrations regulate your body’s rhythms, and the salts clear your body as you feel your weightlessness in our zero gravity loungers.

Sink in, and revel in the gift of slowing down.

Give the gift of relaxation with a giftcard
