This is not a flimsy invitation; this is a calling
a calling to every woman
to rise higher
For you’ve been too forgiving, too quiet, too tamed…for too long.
If you hear this call then know this:
you’re one of the chosen ones
the ones who were put on this Earth
to raise the vibrations
upgrade the consciousness
and anchor the light.
It’s time we come together, as women
to do what we’ve always done best:
It’s time to be INITIATED into the life of your soul.
So turn your pain into power and start sweating your prayers.
Great Mother is watching…and listening.
She always has been.
Sexy and wild.
Fun and liberating.
Empowering and life-changing.
Sacred Dance with Susana is a unique opportunity for women to come together and unleash their body and soul on the dancefloor so they can remember how to access and express their most powerful, radiant and liberated selves.
Set to a curated playlist, Susana’s powerful yet gentle guidance will lead you on a journey of freedom and empowerment as you dance your way through seven transformative phases: awaken, play, purge, surrender, remember, rise, and anchor. This one-of-a-kind embodied experience will ultimately gift you the connection, confidence, and clarity you’ve been longing for.
INITIATED is Susana’s 4th annually themed event and will, for the first time, be touring Australia, New Zealand, and North America in 2018. The tour will kick off on the first full moon for 2018 in Susana’s hometown, Noosa.

“Deeply healing. Utterly transformational. Wonderfully curated.”

ABOUT SUSANA FRIONI
Creator & Facilitator
Known for liberating women with her magical, virtually unexplainable, transformative dance experience, Susana Frioni created her signature offering, Sacred Dance with Susana, back in 2013 when given the opportunity to create her own version of a “yoga rave” at a health retreat hosted by her late friend, Jess Ainscough, Australia’s original Wellness Warrior.
Fusing her experience as a seasoned Group Fitness Instructor and Yoga Teacher with her studies in deep presence, chakras, and the Enneagram, Susana created the ultimate experience for women to unleash their body and soul on the dancefloor as a way to access and express their most powerful, radiant and liberated selves.
Sacred Dance with Susana is currently an annually themed experience with intentions to evolve into other formats, both in person and online. Susana has also taught at Australia’s leading soulful events such as Earth Events Radical Self Love Party in Brisbane, Soul Sister Circle Kinfolk Festival on the Gold Coast and Mindful Mama’s Mama Camp in Victoria.
Alongside Sacred Dance, Susana is also a certified Deep Coaching Professional and producer & host of LOVE SEX DESIRE, a weekly podcast series downloaded in over 190 countries. She lives on the Sunshine Coast, QLD with her daughter.
Susana channeled and guided our energy like a shaman! I felt completely safe and held.

Frequently asked questions
+ Is this freedom/ecstatic dance?
The sacred dance journey is a blend of simple guided movement patterns and free-form dance. It’s the place where feminine embodiment, ecstatic dance and meditation collide.
+ Why is this an alcohol and drug free event?
Sacred Dance with Susana is all about transformation and real transformation calls for sobriety. Therefore, this is a sober body-soul dance experience. No exceptions.
+ Is this experience better to attend on your own or with friends?
Some women prefer attending on their own as they feel they can let go more. However, other women prefer going with a friend as it makes them feel more comfortable or the evening more “fun”. It’s a personal choice and one you won’t know the answer until you try it both ways.
+ What type of music do you play?
The carefully curated playlist for INITIATED includes an eclectic mix of genres such as dance/electronic, indie pop, deep house, reggae fusion, hip-hop, blues/rock, R&B, world and acoustic. You can listen to this 30min teaser playlist featuring 7 of the 21 tracks I’ve chosen for the INITIATED journey.
+ I’m pregnant. Is it safe for me to attend?
Absolutely! I’ve had pregnant women attend before, one was even 8 months pregnant and she had the most sacred experience ever dancing the night away.
+ If I’m no longer able to attend the event, can I refund my ticket?
Tickets are non-refundable but you can most definitely transfer your ticket to someone else. Simply send me the name and email of the new ticket holder no later than 3 days before the event to email@example.com

— Melissa Sandon, Founder of Soul Medicine Academy
“Raw and real. An adventure, inwards. It was sensual and sweaty. Both confronting and liberating. And So. Much. Fun!

I loved it and cannot wait for the next one.” — Kamina N, Sydney

“I thought I would be too old or not fit in at this event, but instead, I felt incredibly grateful and in awe of how beautiful women are (regardless of their shape, size or age) when they’re being free. I was reminded how much I love to dance and how much I want it in my life. As a result, I’m even more committed to showing up in life as fully expressed, open and brave.” — Ginny D, Brisbane.

“I didn’t think a shy, unrhythmic, self-conscious girl would have any place at this Sacred Dance but I was wrong. By the end of the night, I felt liberated, energised, empowered, loved, light and most importantly not the same person who started the night. The guided dance journey was unimaginable! The stillness while the first bars of the first song blasted and moved through our bodies gave way to that unbridled, primal movement. Without any thought, I found myself dancing from my heart.” — Lisa O, Brisbane
“I felt absolutely alive and free with energy pulsating through my body. I felt like walls, barriers and limitations had melted away and there was an incredible feeling of full self-expression.” — Connie Chapman, Life Coach, Sydney

“I felt as though I had found a part of me that had been undiscovered and like my soul had been fully expressed.” — Elle W, Sydney
“The only time I normally dance is when I have “my ladies” around me as a blanket making it “ok” to do so, but never have I danced as a self-development exploration on my own before. It was truly liberating, enlivening, transformative and filled with many sage moments. I had several downloads and aha moments.” — Claire M, Brisbane
“Liberating, empowering and hands down, the best night of my life!!” — Rebecca Houghton, QLD
“Thanks to this Sacred Dance event I was finally able to feel every inch of my body, inside and out, and it felt amazing! I’ve never felt so alive.

I was holding onto past relationships and experiences, which were the reason I was so closed off with my relationships with others. What a transformative night!” — Michelle L, Sydney

— Jacky Taylor, Brisbane
“Such a transformational experience! You may enter a stressed, strung out woman, closed off to the richness of yourself and your life. You WILL emerge, like a butterfly from a chrysalis, soaked in love and magic, juiced up, blissed out, high on life. If connection is what you’re craving, you’ll find it here, in yourself and on the dance floor with Susana” — Emma Shields, QLD
