Welcome to Embodydance—Dancing your Journey from the Inside out

For more than 14 years, Embodydance has created community through gathering together in Ecstatic Dance—considered a sacred practice by many of our members. Every Thursday from 6:30–8:30pm and every Sunday from 3–5pm at the Railyard Performance Center in the heart of Santa Fe, Embodydance provides an opportunity to drop into profound connection with self, community, the world; with Source. We encourage you to come dance and move in freedom. Find out what it holds for you by experiencing the dance for yourself.

Discover the rich possibilities within and without…

We honor the path to ecstasy Gabrielle Roth mapped out, but we are not a 5Rhythms® dance community. To find out more about how we are different, read the “What We Are & Aren’t” page. Come dance with us!

Rhythm Wave in the House!


Embodydance Santa Fe welcomes Charlie Sallans from Rhythm Wave as our guest Facilitator on Thursday, March 13! 

You don’t want to miss this wave!

charley-WEBCharlie Sallens – dancing in many different ways since the early 80’s. Raves from 1999 to 2005, 5rhythms since 2008. I have been facilitating conscious dance since 2010 in various capacities.

I am a Dancer / Facilitator whose style leans towards pushing edges and boundaries in a playful and present way. My intention is to mix the complexities of human emotions captured in a hour and a half set.

We will explore the ecstatic, the deep, the heavy and playful parts of life. We will collaborate together: dancers and DJ to co-create movement in a safe space.
