What is Ecstatic Dance?

Ecstatic Dance is a safe space container for letting go, a place to step out of time and into the moment, through breath and movement medicine.  With music as our muse, we follow our intuition allowing our own unique dance to unfold.  Starting with an opening circle, we settle into our bodies,  and then begin our movement journey to carefully selected musical soundscapes. Eclectic mixes from around the world, with sounds from shamanic drum journeys, electronica, EDM, alternative, Soul, and many other inspired artists and genres, with live musical accents and messages from the facilitators.  We gently build to a crescendo with the unique sound journey of the night, and then drop back down into the still spaces of ecstasy. All welcome!  This isn’t a ‘date’ space, it’s a safe space.( but people have met their life partner here on the dance floor) No partner needed.  This dance is for you! Just bring yourself wherever you are at. Please respect your space and that of those around you. This is a movement practice, to get the full experience talking is discouraged on the dance floor. Dress comfortably. We sweat! Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.  “Sweat your prayers, exercise the demons, explore your chi, release endorphins naturally through movement, Feel all the feels, Have fun! surprise yourself, Rock out! meditate, access the flow state, samadhi, Ecstasy… ”
