Dancing Beyond the Veil

Lately I've been working on new dances fitting for the Fall and coming Winter seasons, dances that encourage us to lift the veil and step between the worlds. Arcana Dea Dance and friends will be performing some of these dances at upcoming events in Cumberland on Nov. 1st, 3rd and 4th. Plan to join us for 'The Community Celebration for the Dead' on Thursday November 1st, an evening of dance performances, stories, ritual, art, food and live music with local musician Oscar Robles. Marianna Lavioletta and I have been co-hosting this event at the Abbey Studio for several years now and it is becoming a tradition in Cumberland. Marianna will be acting acting as high priestess, guiding us in a ritual in memory of the dead, telling stories and sharing a dance in the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. We encourage people of all ages to join us and bring photos and/or offerings for the community altar. The altar and art show will stay up for until Sunday Nov. 4th 5PM.
