The Event

The global peace party at the heart of it all!

Every year Earthdance Ohio hosts the only Earthdance event in Ohio. The peace party is coordinated with other peace events around the world for International Day of Peace. The Ohio event features many dance presentations including many participatory dances. Some of our main acts include Bellydance Columbus and the Israeli Folk Dancers as well as OWU students. We invite families, students, community members, and all supporters of peace to come and dance with us. We even have a DJ for open dance times and food to keep you energized. One of the biggest features of the global event is the synchronized prayer for peace played at each event all across the world connecting the dozens of gathered groups. Half of the proceeds from the suggested donations go to our local beneficiary that aligns with peace and the year’s theme.

This year the event is on Sunday, September 18th at Ohio Wesleyan University Benes Room and Jaywalk located at the Hamilton Williams Campus Center. The theme is Global Shift as Earthdance International celebrates 20 years of giving peace a dance and begins to shift to the next decade.
