Shamanic Fusion Dance ® is a form of authentic movement that was developed by Anandha Ray over three decades of performance, choreography, and directing. These techniques fuse modern dance practices with theories of dance/movement therapy to create a healing and expressive art form. Shamanic Fusion Dance ® is influenced by indigenous cultural rituals and a lifetime of research into the therapeutic and transformational aspects of dance and performance.

Intuitive Technique is more than a dance class, it is a journey to discover the fullness and joy of movement, taking risks, and the art of performance. This guided practice releases physical and mental blocks, which allows for deep emotional healing and unleashes your full creative potential. Whether you're an advanced professional dancer or a beginner, this technique will unlock the next level of embodiment, both physically and in the realm of movement expression. There are no steps, no choreography, and no mistakes. This experience will surprise you by revealing more dance mastery than you believe you have. Discover your authentic expression and experience profound sacred awakening through Intuitive Technique guided movement journeys.

The Serpent has long been a symbol of the Goddess, feminine power and awakened kundalini energy whose expression rebalances our collective psyche. Serpent Sanctum believes that interaction with the serpent touches people on an emotional level, triggering the subconscious to review its patterns and bringing people into immediate presence. We weave together sacred serpent medicine with dance, ritual, and music to create a modern incarnation of an ancient healing art form.

Rose Amaru is founder of the Serpent Sanctum, a nonprofit dedicated to facilitating empowerment, healing and the arts through Sacred Serpent Wisdom.
