What iS "EcStAtic DAncE?"
Ecstatic Dance is a free form dance event. There are no moves to learn, or steps to master. You move your body however you desire without judgement.
Every event begins with a guided warm-up, and then flow into the main event. After we dance it out for some times, we will come down to a meditative sound bath. Many take this time to lie down, or meditate on the soothing sounds. Ground all of that built up energy.
Dance however you desire: There are no moves to learn, or steps to master. move your body how you desire without judgement. Dance solo or with others (with their consent). There is no wrong way to dance here.
No talking on the dance floor: Let go of words, and communicate with your dance. You're free to whoop, yell, growl, or make noises. If you'd like to have a conversation, please leave the dance area.
