As long as we live in a culture that…
As long as we live in a culture that tolerates violence against women, and dominance of any kind, over partnership we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that blames victims, and holds them responsible for crimes committed against them, we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values productivity, efficiency and work over beingness + presence + play we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values stoicism and strength over emotion + vulnerability we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values spirituality over nature we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values logic and rationality over intuition we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values competition and independence over cooperation + connection we need women-only dance.
As long as we live in a culture that values masculine over feminine. And by association men over women, we need women-only dance. Particularly women-only pole, sensual and conscious dance. As women, we need dance that honors + celebrates the feminine—the goddess within—to counter-balance the insidious cultural influences that allow us to forget to value this nature in ourselves.
As long as we live in a culture that addresses groups consisting of only women with, “hey guys,” and doesn’t even see the problem in that, we need dance for women-only.
Because otherwise we wither. We stop listening to the call of our siren soul. And that’s a crying shame.
Women Need to Dance in Sisterhood
We women need sisterhood. We need to dance + play together. It’s coded in our DNA.
We need to cultivate, nurture + worship the divine feminine in each of us. To witness it. To allow it to shimmer in, and through us.
Perhaps men need this for themselves too.
But we need it for ourselves first. At least I do. As do many women I know. We need it to fuel our creative life force.
Because daily life in a culture that values the masculine, and men by correlation, wears a woman down. It makes her de-value herself. And she slowly loses touch with her feminine soul until it is buried in some deep dark corner where the light never shines.
And our men need for us to dance in sisterhood without them too. So we can discover and define what beauty + sexy + sensuality + femininity are on our terms. Through our eyes. To feed our selves. And then share this nourishment with them.
Because I have seen it. And it is breathtakingly beautiful. The kind of radiance witnessed during the most spectacular magic hours of dawn and dusk.
We need dance for women-only until all women feel sexy and free enough to dance on the beach, in coffee shops, on planes and on snow covered cars.
And then, I believe, we’ll all be able to dance together. Into the sunset.
