Conscious Dance Workshops
Dancing Freedom - Conscious Dance
Dancing Freedom is a conscious dance practice, a moving meditation practice with the intention of aligning life with love and awareness - living consciously! A free-form dance practice that blends the medicine of dance with the medicine of ceremony and co-creation. Dancing freedom takes you on a guided dance journey through an elemental wave of Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether - deepening your connection to life and living.
In the dance you are invited to explore an authentic way of moving - a creative expression of your unique being. There is only one rule in Dancing Freedom - you can't do it wrong! In the process of dance we can become a free flow of energy, moving into oneness, beyond the mind, personality and ego, where there is an opportunity to awaken the spirit.
Dancing Freedom is a practice of liberation. It is a somatic, ecstatic and shamanic dance practice supporting the emergence of living oneness. It is fun, easy, elegant and empowering. It heals. It reveals. It welcomes. Any person of any age, size, color or creed can do it.
Conscious dance can provide an opportunity to release physical tension and pain, to unwind energy which may be trapped in the body, to express held emotions or sounds, to play like a child, to connect with others on the dance floor, to have FUN and to remember that you LOVE to dance!

Sara-Jane Cleland -
Dancing Freedom Facilitator
In 2016, Sara-Jane discovered 5 rhythms dance practice on retreat with Gina Chick and became a passionate advocate for conscious dance. She organized workshops in the Southern Highlands throughout 2018 with Sydney dance facilitators - Caitlin Wood (Dancing Freedom), Michelle Mahrer (5 Rhythms) and Sue Andersen (5 Rhythms). At the end of 2018 she journeyed to the Byron Bay hinterland for intensive facilitator training in Dancing Freedom.
In 2019 she offered monthly Dancing freedom events and in 2020 fortnightly dancing freedom events synced to the energies of the full and dark moon. Her driving force for her work is connection. Connection through dancing in community, co-creating and supporting each other - being seen for your authentic self. And providing an opportunity for connection to oneself, your loving whole being, so so worthy of self-love and creative expression.
Private Retreats, Festivals & 1:1 Sessions
Many people benefit from private 1:1 dance sessions for a deeper process of releasing emotions, pain, energy & tension which may be held in the body. With 20 years of bodywork experience Sara-Jane can offer a safe space and gentle support with this profound process.
