unite in the Global Prayer for Peace. In Denmark you will find us in Aabyhoej

A Global Collaboration Since 1997

Earthdance is the world's largest synchronized music and dance festival for peace. Since its inception, Earthdance has been held on over 500 locations in 80 countries with all events simultaneously joining together in the Prayer for Peace - a powerful moment of coherent intention. Each public earthdance event gives 50% of their profits to a charity that falls into one of the following categories:

  • -The Welfare of Children & Urban Youth
  • -Indigenous Peoples & Cultures
  • -International Relief and Development
  • -Environmental Sustainability & Protection
  • -Organizations that help Promote Peace

Earthdance occurs annually every September in recognition of the United Nations International Day of Peace with the intention to build a Culture of Peace.

In Aabyhoej, Denmark we have been a part of EARTHDANCE since 2004.

 
Earthdance was conceived in 1996 by artist/musician Chris Deckker, as a vision to unite the whole world through the universal platform of dance and music. Earthdance has now become the largest global synchronized dance event in the world.
What began in 1997, with 22 cities in 18 countries has now occurred in over 360 locations with 340 locations in 57 countries participating in 2006 alone! Rising out of the global electronic music scene, Earthdance has now grown to include a diverse cross-section of musical genres including world music, jazz, conscious hip-hop, folk and reggae.

Earthdance has shown how the potent combination of music, dance and technology can be harnessed for positive and humanitarian aims. For one night all around the globe, people join together to dance as one global community, united with a common vision for peace and humanitarian aims.

Every year, Earthdance continues to grow in volume and scope. This year we are gearing up to include as many people on the planet as possible through a number of new initiatives and by making the Prayer for Peace track available to everyone.

The Mission
Our mission is to promote peace by joining participants worldwide in a synchronized PRAYER FOR PEACE and to support humanitarian causes through the global language of music and dance.

The Goal
Our goal is to inspire participation from promoters, clubs, artists, musicians and peace-lovers worldwide to dedicate one day to support humanitarian efforts and help unite people from all nations in a day of peaceful celebration and harmony. This year we are expanding the circle to include anyone interested in world peace, even if you can't make it to an official event.

The Objective
Our objective is to create as many Earthdance events around the world as possible. From public stadium concerts to private living room gatherings, there are no conditions on how big or small an event has to be. The spirit of Earthdance is participation on whatever level possible.

In the spirit of "Think Global, Act Local," each local promoter must donate at least 50% of their profits to a local charity related to one of the following categories:
The Welfare of Children & Urban Youth
Indigenous Peoples
International Relief and Development;
Environmental Sustainability & Protection
Organizations that help Promote Peace
Each promoter also commits to include that charity in their event by giving them space to display information, and time to speak at the event. To find out more about becoming a promoter, please visit our public events page.

If you want to participate, but do not feel that putting on a public event is for you, please consider having a private event with your friends and family.
