International Dances of Universal Peace

These simple dances were first created by Murshid Samuel Lewis, a Sufi in San Francisco.  He used sacred phrases of all of the world's faith traditions and simple folk dance movements.  From the few dances he started leading in his garage, the dances have grown to over 500 certified dances.  There are dance groups all over North America, in Central and South America, in Europe -- virtually all over the world.  We dance locally every month in both Toledo and Ann Arbor.  All are welcome to join us.  You do not need a partner.  Dances are taught as we dance, so there is no need for prior experience.
