Sedona AZ (March 13, 2014) – Elaine Hanson will present a program to the University Women of Sedona on the recent Sedona Peace Week at 10 a.m., Monday, April 7, at The Church of the Red Rocks.
Hanson was the founder of Sedona Peace Week which, with Barbara Litrell as chair, involved fifteen free workshops and three public gatherings from Feb 2 to Feb 7. It culminated in the World Peace Dance program on Feb 7, with Hanson as Artistic Director and choreographer. Hanson will give an overview of these events as well as relate her life-long interest in the body-mind-spirit connection.
A graduate with a BFA in dance from the University of Arizona and a post-grad in theology and law, Hanson has taught and been involved in many types and styles of dance and performance in Arizona and Minnesota, of which she is a dual citizen. For instance, she was the choreographer for the Headwaters site of “One River Mississippi,” a national, multi-venue performance to raise environmental awareness of water issues worldwide. She regards dance and movement as a primary path to spiritual unfoldment in her life.
University Women of Sedona meets the first Monday of each month, October through May, from 9:30 to 11 a.m at The Church of the Red Rocks, Bowstring Drive, with an annual scholarship luncheon in June. After a half-hour social gathering at 9:30, influential speakers from the area present educational and entertaining programs, followed by a business meeting.
The main goal of University Women of Sedona is to provide scholarships to women in the area who are striving to continue their education.
