Being a Member
The vision of the Dances is to bring peace to the world by encouraging people to eat, dance and pray together, bringing a sense of spiritual connection within and without. Dances of Universal Peace North America is not an exclusive membership organization: everyone who has ever danced in a circle anywhere is a member of the community! However, membership dues allow the organization to fulfill its mission to support Dance circles, dancers, leaders, and musicians across the region. And DUPNA is a public benefit non-profit in the United States, so donations in the form of memberships are tax deductible.
Your membership in Dances of Universal Peace, North America is a tangible expression of your place in the region-wide Dance circle and your support of the growth and health of the Dances we so love. You can read about the projects that your money goes toward, here.
