CONJURE MOTION FORMAT

Do you love the idea of moving your body with intention towards natural cycles and seasons? Do you feel the pull toward ancient wisdom and mystery traditions? Do you enjoy study and practice within a group environment?

Conjure Motion is a spiritually focused, nature inspired fusion dance format that explores the intersections of ancient sciences, western mystery traditions, astrology and tarot to weave logical body-based practices and group rituals using techniques found in global dances, yoga, martial arts, and other movement disciplines. 

Conjure Motion is a series of choreographed moves designed specifically for humans on a path of self-knowledge, connection and community. It’s an accessible format for all levels, that provides an embodied experience of the 4 ancient elements of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Deeper levels of this work present a self-discovery journey through symbolism found in the Tarot and the Tree of Life.  

Designed with the Sigil Method of cued group improvisation, the movement combinations can be practiced solo or dynamically with others.

The movements are created by Tanya Lee and her team at Body Art Motion and are influenced by a wide range of studies, multicultural influences and multidisciplinary practices, notably: ancient Sumerian science & cosmology, electronic dance music (EDM), yoga, Hermetics, astrology, tarot, fusion belly dance, martial arts, and dances of North Africa, Middle East, Polynesia and Caribbean. 

With the support, feedback and love of our diverse community, this body of work continues to evolve towards a collective need. All experience levels, bodies and genders are welcome. Check our schedule page for upcoming classes & workshops.  Contact us to bring a Conjure Motion workshop to your community.

"Any magical or spiritual system is the product of a lively dance in which tradition and innovation take the lead by turns. "
