Candice Tritch, a longtime dancer and choreographer, founded Dance Alchemy in 2012 as a way to combine peace work with dance, creating a new way to connect people around the world for peace.
Every culture on Earth has some form of sacred, spiritual, or ceremonial dance. Candice creates her choreography using elements drawn from a wide variety of these dances. The result is a completely new repertoire that crosses religious and cultural lines to unite hearts for peace.
Candice has been dancing since the 1960’s, and teaching dance nearly as long. She obtained her Bachelors of Science in Education with a concentration in Dance in 1976. She has studied and performed modern, contemporary, jazz, ballet, Latin, ballroom, tap, and a wide assortment of international dances.
Candice’s story is one of overcoming limitations. Early in her dance career, she suffered injuries sustained in a car crash, and the doctors told her that her dance career was over. But the love of dance burned as a flame in her heart. She recovered, earned a Master’s degree in Social Work, and began an alternative career as an advocate for people with disabilities.
In 2012 she decided her dreams could wait no longer. She formed Dance Alchemy as a welcoming, safe place for people of all sizes, ages, gender and ability levels could express themselves through dance — with a purpose: to promote peace, first within ourselves and then our World.
History of Site and Related Water Issues:
There are many problems facing the Chesapeake Bay. The major pollutant to the Bay is excess nutrients, which come from agriculture, urban/suburban runoff, vehicle emissions and many other sources. Excess nutrients fuel the growth of algae blooms, which block sunlight that underwater bay grasses need to grow. When algae die, they are decomposed in a process that depletes the water of oxygen, which all aquatic animals need to survive.
We plan to use a combination of music – from the Global Water Dance plus our our composition called Vast & Eternal River.
The members of Dance Alchemy plus we invite anyone who would like to join in with us.
The Fells Point area is a very popular and visible location in the Baltimore area. We have contacted the Fells Point Community group for permission to dance and will film and post the dance.
