“The dance is strong magic.
The body can fly without wings.
It can sing without voice.
The dance is strong magic.
The dance is life.”
~ Pearl Primus
Welcome to Ecstatic Dance Boston!
Each month we'll be bringing you a multilayered dance experience... starting off with a movement class warmup featuring renowned instructors and facilitators, followed by DJ'd beats and music from dance floors around the world, and finally coming to a sound scape cool down integration with either live instruments, digital production, or vocalization.
Our featured guests will be a mix of local talent and familiar faces to international teachers and musicians. Enjoy connecting in our SereniTea Lounge, co-creating community poetry inspired by the dance, watch flow artists spin, relax with a chair massage, and network with new friends. We'll start and finish each night with brief opening and closing circles to ground ourselves and gather in our present space of learning, expression, and connection.

"At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways." - Donna Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)
❉ Connect with inquiry before assumption, give yourself permission to be present and free of digital distractions, enjoy a natural high, and co-create the experience with consideration. ❉
Any concerns at any point can be addressed with an available Space Holder (listed at the entrance table)
