Water Dance

with Dawn Morgan
at the Lune Valley Movement Space near Lancaster

6th August 10am-10th August 1pm

A 5 day immersion in the liquid landscape of the body and the earth.
Places limited to 12 dancers.

Enter the sensual dance of water, we are 70-80% water even our bones are 20% water and yet we can sometimes forget how to flow.

This 5 day retreat is an invitation to move with the waters of the land, sipping, tasting, dipping in a toe or immersing ourselves in the liquid landscape within us and around us.

The intention is to create a container for deep refreshment and purification for ourselves and for the earth’s waters.

An overview of the Timetable, open to changes!


Sunday 6th August, Monday 7th August & Wednesday 9th August Dawn will guide and facilitate the ‘Water Dance’, as we explore our liquid flow through dance and movement.

On the other 2 mornings, we will join the studio sessions run by guest teachers, Tuesday 8th Yoga with Gaby Maass, Thursday 10th, Tai Chi with Gulliver Brodbeck. I have asked the guest teacher to work with water as their theme on these days.


We will go on a water ‘field trips’ visiting a bodies of water nearby.

There is a small lake, a stream and waterfall close to the dance studio. We will also take a trip out to move on the beach, by the sea. We may also visit the beautiful Middlewood Valley to move with the river there and of course there is the River Lune…


There will be time to rest, and sometimes there will be group time for movement, sharing, integration and perhaps some body work.

This event is inspired by Dawn’s long time practice & teaching of the 5 Rhythms. Somatic Movement explorations including Continuum Movement, Authentic Movement and Body Mind Centering and especially her time working in the landscape with Suprapto Suryodarmo will inform the retreat. Her knowledge and connection with the land around the Lune Valley Movement Space will bring a depth and ease to our unfolding into movement.
