What we're about

"Because there is no one right way... to dance, or to live." Ecstatic Dance San Diego is an alcohol-free, barefoot, free form dance event in San Diego that meets some Friday nights generally from 8pm-11pm. We dance to a wide variety of music that a live DJ spins for us (including world beat, classics, fusion, trance, house, etc.). The Dance community was started almost twenty years ago as DanceJam San Diego and our community has been growing strong ever since. In June 2013 we transitioned to become Ecstatic Dance San Diego. You can learn more about this expanding worldwide community at Ecstaticdance.org. Our mission is to provide an open space where you can bring your authentic body out into the open, and simply move. You are welcome to come meet and dance with others or, you can simply come and do your own thing. Please always check our Facebook group ("Ecstatic Dance San Diego") for the most up-to-date location and time information as we do keep things fresh and are often trying out new spaces and formats. We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.

Ecstatic Dance San Diego - North County

Dance North County

Ecstatic Dance San Diego is taking a momentary pause from holding Virtual Ecstatic Dances. Our plan is to return in August with an interactive outdoor, multiple satellite location, silent-disco-style Ecstatic Dance. More Details to come… We are taking this pause as an opportunity for us to put our attention on further educating ourselves to how we as a community can best use our platform to contribute to the radical social justice and global transformation that is currently taking place. Dance is our Medicine, and we are committed to bringing this healing back to the people through expressive movement, free dance and a loving community. We continue to grow by becoming a more accessible, inclusive and intersectional dance-centric space. We encourage you to continue to take action in your own ways, practice self care, and collaborate on raising the collective vibration of our world.
