Dance is one of the oldest forms of human creative expression. Movement communicates in a way that transcends vocabulary and connects the mind, body, and spirit in physical and emotional release. Dance has a holistically healing power to unite us with the rhythms of the universe through celebration of the cycles of nature. Dance has its roots in ancient ritual and worship of the sacred. By exploring the transformational and empowering dynamics of sacred dance movements, we can connect with and embody the divine spirit within all things.

I have taken a number of zoom dance classes with Astarte. It has worked out very well as a replacement for in-person sessions. Astarte has an extensive background in dance, which is evident when you’re receiving her instructions. I appreciate the opportunity to broaden my skills. I intend to keep taking her on-line classes until I feel comfortable resuming in-house dancing. It has been fun, as well as a nice way to maintain a dance connection. I encourage anyone to choose a session that fits their schedule.

Being able to take a Sacred Dance class with Astarte thru Zoom has been a very positive experience and I have learned new movements that honor the core of my being as a woman on this planet!
Astarte is such a skilled and talented dancer and teacher. In this class, she is attentive to my needs and ensures that the sessions are productive and all in a video environment. It is so wonderful to have access to her wisdom, sacred movements and extensive dance knowledge. She accommodated the time zone difference and really works with you to make the experience so positive, rewarding and challenging ! The moves taught in this class delve into core movements that address a woman’s body sovereignty and the right to take up space as well as provide an excellent opportunity for exercise, privacy and convenience. As a beginner, I have learned core moves that have allowed me to flow more deeply and smoothly in my daily life . Sacred Dance with Astarte has been an excellent, healthy, and rewarding experience !
Astarte is a magnificent teacher! She is patient and not only explains things in a way that are easy to understand, but she also demonstrates an immense amount of knowledge in her craft! I look forward to dancing with her again very soon ❤️
