ECSTATIC DANCE LIVE DJ'S + NO TALKING + NO SHOES + NO BOOZE
Please sign in at the door take a deep conscious breath begin your embodied journey and arrive. Remove your shoes, turn off all phones before entering this dance space. No talking in the dance space, this is a sacred movement meditation space for introspection and full embodied expression inspired by music. Use Namaste prayer hands if you would rather not dance with others, or to complete your dance with others. Quiet area in the lobby for whispering. Kids must be attended at all times.

CLOSING CIRCLE
Closing Circle after dance is a facilitated intentional circle, a sacred space. We come together to complete our dance experience and to practice expressing with words our embodied experience. This space is not here to discuss what happened before the dance or what you think might happen after the dance. Please honor this dance practice and the medicine it is here to provide for the community. There are other circles dedicated to other personal processing. Please respect this intentional space and the people in it and commit to the agreements of the closing circle.

GIVING & RECEIVING
This is not a promotional and advertising space. Giving and receiving is a practice of trading with community. After dance bring clothing, food, items that no longer serve you and might serve someone else. In closing circle if you are feeling the need for support from the community this is the time you might ask. Someone may raise there hand to connect with you after the circle is closed.

COMMUNITY PICNIC
Picnic outdoors when weather permits. Bring healthy food to share. Please clean up after. Use eco-friendly containers and utensils if possible.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE: limited must be reserved in advance. Email: [masked] by Wednesday. Work trade available upon request.
