“When I am in movement with my Horse in the Dance, primarily what I am doing is celebrating my relationship with the Divine, the sacred spirit that unites us all and measures the beat of our lives.
When I am in the Horse Dance, I am at times seeking to move my Horse, but ultimately noticing where I am moved.
The Horse and I are performing a radical act”. Dawn Oakley-Smith
The sacred Art of the Horse Dance is a unique expression of our wild nature, witnessed and held by Great Mystery. Through long ages we have recognised horses as medicine animals of power and wisdom and the horse dance can bring an individual to a very real experience of this.
Dawn Morgan (Shapeshift Dance) has a deep love of horses, and a knowing of the transformational capacity of movement, ritual and dance, and how this brings us into right relationship with our body and Nature.
Dawn Oakley-Smith has a long relationship with horses which has been through many incarnations. She currently holds a Herd of 17 and is devoted to facilitating individuals on journeys of self-discovery through the medium of the horse.
Seven years ago the two Dawns manifested their many musings and conversations about bringing their modalities together – and the first Horse Dance was born.
