Retreat Leader- Candice Tritch, Founder and Director of Dance Alchemy-Baltimore, home of the Dance4Peace Projects. A global dance alliance of dancers and choreographers focused on spreading peace through dance and uniting dancers around the world in collaborative dance movies

Dance Alchemy’s original choreography is designed to engage heart, mind, and soul. We integrate dances from around the world into a spiritually uplifting global repertoire reflecting our loving intent for peace around the world.

As a cross-cultural bridge, Dance Alchemy combines peace work with dance, sharing dances across cultures as we teach dance to each other and bring people together. Words so often get in the way of connection. We take our thoughts of peace, love and unity out of our heads and into movement, changing consciousness through dance.
