Anna Halprin's Planetary Dance

Celebrating Anna's 100th birthday and the 40th Anniversary of the Planetary Dance

“Few dance artists have been as influential as Anna Halprin. In her nine decades as a dancer, she has redefined the art form, abandoning conventions and embracing the wide open field of creative expression. She has brought the healing power of embodied creativity to people around the world. The Tamalpa Institute, International Tamalpa branches and Associates celebrate the life’s work of this amazing woman, co-founder of The Tamalpa Institute, who continues to be a source of inspiration, peace, and social transformation.”
To find out more about other opportunities to join this collective celebration, sign up to receive the Tamalpa Institute newsletter and the Tamalpa UK newsletter.

In the spirit of gratitude and in honour of Anna’s Life, legacy and inspiration we have created this short film.

The planetary dance is a dance of peacemakers.
A dance that makes peace with itself,
makes peace between the performers,
makes peace with the Spirit, and ultimately makes peace with the Earth on which it moves.
