As in: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=12769#p166597, above,

if you Google, "Vajra Dance" you will come to find many videos of a secondary practice of the Dzogchen Community by that name.

for example.

This is a practice of ChNNR that came to him in a dream, and it is practiced in all of the Dzogchen Community centers around the world.

It is a practice that teaches integration with movement, and is practiced on a special Vajra Dance Mandala, sometimes in special costumes.

Some of the practitioners of this dance like it enough to have made offerings to build a million dollar, open air, dance hall in the wilds of Western Massachusetts.

You can learn to dance the Vajra Dance through courses offered at all of the Dzogchen Community Centers. Many of the followers of ChNNR are really into Vajra Dance, and find it really helpful to teach integration with movement.

In the last year ChNNR has also been having the students at his retreats learn and perform traditional Tibetan dances, too. Sometimes these dance sessions go on for 5 or 6 hours, and also teach integration with movement when performed in his presence. (No pun intended.) :smile:

So dance definitely has a place in the practices of the Dzogchen Community, as does integration with everything. :smile:
