Dance Write-Ups, Audio, Video

DUP North America thanks Sky Majida Roshay, Rahmana Elizabeth Sayre, Shivadam Adam Burke, Kabir Stuart McKinnon, Mansur Richard Conviser, Munir Peter Reynolds, and all who have worked with the originators to create and make available these write-ups of Dances of Universal Peace. These links will lead you to the DUP International website where mentored Leaders of the Dances whose dues are paid up may use their user name and password to access the materials. The Resource Library is for the use and advancement of the Leaders Guild for the Dances of Universal Peace. Please do not distribute Dance write-ups, .mp3 files, articles or esoteric papers beyond members of the Leaders Guild. We are only posting here Dances from the North American region which have not been previously published by PeaceWorks Publications in some form. The copyright for these Dances is held by the originators, except where otherwise noted. Dance originators have verified that they have received express permission to use copyrighted music and lyrics. Posted videos and audio clips, marked with "V" and "A," are only those approved by the originators. Column at right indicates latest write-up revision date.

The Guidance Council has noted that “Written and recorded versions of Dances of Universal Peace have great value as a reminder to leaders who have already experienced and learned a dance, as a record of the originator’s intentions and of any copyright or other restrictions held by the originator. The spiritual transmission of the Dances remains experiential, passed from one human being to another. It is especially important in this digital age to remain true to a person-to-person, hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart transmission of these dance practices. Collectively we dance leaders have the responsibility to channel dance resources in a manner which is consistent with the intent of the Leaders Guild, the Mentor Teachers Guild, and the intended use of the material.”

More Dances / Additional Resources leads to originators’ websites where you can find more information on obtaining published Dance attunements, instructions and/or other media. A link to an index for Dances as published by PeaceWorks can be found at the end of this Dance Write-Ups list.
