The festival organisers say:

‘Recent research at the University of Hertfordshire has shown that you get a much bigger release of endorphins when you dance than during any other forms of exercise; it also connects with the emotional centres in the brain, that’s why dancing prompts an emotional release. It’s cathartic – a letting go of pent-up emotions – you won’t find a better opportunity this year to open the floodgates for your endorphins than Awake Dance Celebration, join the communal catharsis taking place from 18 – 21 July:
‘A gathering celebrating dance, movement, healing and most of all… the body! We’ve created a programme with only 1 stage, so you don’t have to choose between workshops, you can attend them all. This event is to fund our Awakeland Reforestation Programme, and we will close the gathering with a ceremony planting 9 trees to acknowledge and honour the 9 expressions of dance!’
