About The Retreat

A transformational dance space that expands the boundaries of traditional practices, allowing the whole dancer to be inspired, connected, and healed

We all have intuition. We all dance. The very beat of your heart lives in sync with the rhythm of nature. You have always been dancing.

Dance, as a sacred healing art, naturally raises the human vibration. When we approach practices with full awareness, a deep wisdom connects the body, mind, and soul. The Intuitive Dance Method brings tools of wellness to the dance floor, opening the heart center to all possibilities and allowing the full dancer to be embraced, healed and witnessed.

Those who love dance, know its healing power. As movers, shakers, dancers, educators, choreographers, and performers, we all have an incredible opportunity to authentically create and express our art; how we use each moment is significant. This transformational dance retreat has been designed to expand beyond the boundaries of traditional practices, allowing us to actively engage in creative expression, capture moments in flow and replenish the soul. From this space, we can move deeper into the meanings of our movement. Creative abundance comes from a genuine and sustainable center within. We will tap into this and you will use these gifts forever!

The Intuitive Dance Method will heighten the vibe of your dancer, within and without. Integrated with intuitive energy workshops, you will deeply reconnect to your spiritual center. Your relationship with dance will be invigorated with wisdom, meaning and grace. As you tap into the foundational intuitive principles, you will be met with an endless supply to guide you beyond personal limitations. You will leave feeling refreshed, inspired, and equipped with new skills to harness your superpower dancer and live your best intuitive life!

Dance your heart out where the jungle meets the ocean.

Your Hosts

Adge Marz Lindsey

Adge Marz Lindsey has an ever-growing love for dance that tends to be contagious! Her intuitive movement practice brings creativity, joy, and profound presence to the mat, the dance studio, and beyond. She is a strong holder of space, coupling the deep wisdom of dance technique with intuitive energy work. The ancient teachings of yoga infiltrate all of her classes, as Adge’s approach relies on growing smart, lifelong, intuitive movers.

Her approach, The Intuitive Dance Method, allows energetic sequencing and authentic movement to guide her technique practices. Training and certification is offered to movement educators, performers, choreographers, and dancers in various modules, as well as in retreat settings. Dance is our intrinsic right and this method is for everyone.

For 20+ years, Adge has traveled, performed in, written, and produced creative projects that cultivate deep community connection and genuine expression. These decades of teaching are supported by many certifications in dance, yoga, physically integrated studies, Reiki I-IV attunements, Intuitive Reader accreditation, and a Master’s degree in special education. From the Colorado mountains, to culturally vibrant Central America destinations, Adge leads dance and yoga teacher trainings, meaningful retreats, and social impact projects. It is her life’s mission to spread light and love through movement.

Kind Reflections

I was fortunate to have Adge as a dance teacher for years. Her encouragement opened possibilities for not only physical movement but emotional, mental and spiritual growth.

- Carol C.

I was very amazed by the reader and healer, Yolessa. She was so genuine and sharp at the same time. She guided me in a way that I can easily accept…also giving me a very practical coaching that I can apply to my daily life. I strongly recommend her…
- Chowol C.

Adge taught me to be a beautiful dancer, but more importantly she also taught me to BE a beautiful person and believe that I AM a beautiful person, inside and out.
- Sarah H.J

It is clear Adge’s priority is lifting up the people around her into their own confidence and sense of enthusiasm for dance, and well, life. It continues to awe —the energy she is able to channel to this goal. She seems to have the capability of multiple humans in one!
- Bailey H.
