Zaar

Trance Dance

Trance dance is one of the oldest healing rituals in the world and today, as in the past , is used to obtain a spiritual wholeness. In the Arabic world, Zaar dance is often accompanied by the Ayoub rhythm , beginning slowly and then building up to a climax where trancelike states or exhaustion are achieved. The goal of such traditional rituals is to excise bad spirits from the body and to heal illnesses. Although Islam rejects this dance form it is regarded as a religious dance by the people. The religion and beliefs of the black races have greatly influenced this ritual, Zaar dance being widely practiced not only in Sudan and Egypt but also in the rest of the Arabic world.

In our courses no Zaar ceremony will be peformed. The dance is only considered in terms of body work to free blocked energy and emotions.
