We strongly recommend Purchasing Tickets in advance.

Spiral Dance tickets will also be sold at the door from 6pm to 7pm the day of the event. If you have questions about tickets and cannot find the answer to those questions on our website, please email

No one turned away for lack of funds. Please give generously and note that there are no refunds, as this is a fundraiser for the many projects Reclaiming is committed to for the year.


The Spiral Dance acts as Bay Area Reclaiming's largest fundraiser for the year and supports many of our other yearly offerings including family camps, courses, rituals and recordings. 

The cost of the Dance has rapidly escalated the past few years as corporate events contribute to spiked venue prices. It takes close to $20,000 just to cover our basic Spiral Dance expenses and that's with volunteers still paying for tickets and with organizers paid nothing for their time. After thousands of volunteer hours in 2018, the Dance lost $800.  

Our donation suggestion humbly reflects this reality. As many of you know, inclusion is one of Reclaiming's basic tenets when organizing public events and we are dedicated to welcoming anyone who feels drawn to be part of any of our yearly gatherings. We mean it when we say, No One Turned Away For Lack of Funds. That said, we really need for as many people as possible to donate at or very much above our minimum suggested donation, please. This will ensure that people who cannot donate or who can donate less than what is suggested will always feel welcome at any of our events.

 And for this year, our 40th anniversary, we’ve secured Craneway Pavillion. This venue is able to embrace our large and diverse community. And does cost a lot more than previous venues. Money raised in excess of Spiral Dance expenses serves all of Bay Area's Reclaiming Community or endeavors closely aligned with Reclaiming values.
