We are lovers of a dance of body prayer. Movement that takes us into deep meditation and great joy. Singing our connections with the One and with each other. Movement, meditation and song that joins us heart to heart.

DUPANZ is our national organisation that supports the growth of Dances of Universal Peace in our beautiful land, Aotearoa New Zealand.

A diverse group, we come from different homelands, have different interests, jobs, ages and stages. Some of us live in towns, some in cities and some enjoy rural living and some live in mobile homes bringing the dances to our varied communities. Together we make up a spread out but loving heart community.

Uniting us is the joy and fulfilment we get through the Dances of Universal Peace and the loose, yet loving connection that, at its best, truly unites us as family. Over the years our family commitment has grown to encompass not only the dances, but our support of one another through life and in this process we have become a deeply connected circle.

You are warmly invited to join our dance family at one of the many dance events throughout Aotearoa. Please check the calendar for details.
