Our relationship to transitioning times in our life,
whether it be in Death, Birth, Marriage or even Re-Birth into a new situation,
has undergone quite a shift of attitudes recently.
As we have grown in our awareness, and so has the spectrum in which we wish to
acknowledge changes in our lives.
Our culture is remembering that there is always another side to each coin,
and even in Death, we are simply witnessing transformation and not loss.
With this in mind, we are able to comprehend that every event, whether an arrival, a departure, or a shifting trajectory, can be cause for celebration.
To celebrate is to create an energy, a force that can be used for the benefit of all concerned
and dance is the perfect accompaniment to celebration,
even in the journey of a soul returning home.
Dance is energy, and also the consistent illustration that movement is inherent in everything.
Everything is in a state of flux and naturally so.
We have been working with dance to accompany movement for thousands of years
and many cultures still make use of this process today.
My dances fan the fires of movement, and provide a visually stimulating experience for all,
as well as a joy and celebration for the Heart. Whether the event is in silence or with music, I am deeply present in the dance and in connection with the soul of the person/persons i'm dancing for.
Dance and movement has held an important place in most cultures, and here in the West,
it's beginning to be re-remembered once again.
It adds a powerful accompaniment to any function that wishes to highlight the message being put across. Whether to have music or not does not detract from the force of human expression in movement.
There are many ways this type of expression can be brought about and I would like to make myself available to discuss any requirements you might have and be flexible to meet your specific needs.
Some areas that my services could enhance your event would be:

‘Ocean Ananda’s dance at a funeral touched me deeply. This creation of the life of the deceased and her flight to another reality, using only a pair of black feathers, sensitively and sensually describing the journey of the deceased, gave me an experience of spiritual dimensions. I have never experienced dance in such context, and surprisingly enough it was completely natural that it was presented in the sanctuary of the church. An experience I would like to share with many others.’ Arne Leeb
‘To see and not the least experience Ocean Ananda’s dance performance at a funeral in a Church in Stockholm was an unforgettable journey of the soul.
I was captured by her sensitive choreography, her graceful way of expressing herself, an artistic ability that left deep impressions in the spectator.
With her dance she knows the art of not only conveying a message but also of touching a nerve – the nerve of life.
Her dance is full of tenderness and mild beauty and as a spectator one finds something unexpected, touching powerfully. I warmly recommend Ocean and wish that many others might share this experience.’
‘A beautiful and sensitive expression in movements. Very well integrated and suitable for a normal Christian burial. It touched me deeply and I came in contact with my own feelings of life's magic transience. I felt how the deceased flew away in peace.’ Kiki
‘No dance performance has ever touched me like this before: Such complete presence which brought me beyond the horizon. It will always stay in my heart.’ Freja
‘With her immense sensitivity and intensity Ocean Ananda expressed our love beyond words through the dance.The air vibrated of energy and all our friends were deeply touched.We truly recommend others to experience the dance of this magnificent woman.’
