Earthdance is more than just a dance for global peace. Each gathering not only brings together like-minded party-goers but also brings together people in the name of upliftment. Every year the Cape Town festival (which also takes place simultaneously at multiple venues across the globe including one in Johannesburg) donates a portion of each ticket sold toward the Earthchild Project. The non-profit organisation operating in disadvantaged schools in Cape Town works with children and teachers through means of educational programmes that focus on the environment, health and life-skills.
This year Earthdance Cape Town will be held at Nekkies Resort Worcester on September 21 with the global meditation taking place between Saturday, September 22 in the west, and on Sunday, September 23 in the east across the globe. This year’s local weekend lineup is probably one the most impressive we’ve seen. Earthdancers can also look forward to world class decor, delicious food trucks and a whole array of fantastical earthly delights. Let’s take a closer look at what Earthdance Cape Town 2018 has in store for this year’s global celebration of mindfulness.
