What we're about

"Because there is no one right way... to dance or to live."

Due to the restrictions of Covid19, we have been on hiatus... but will be returning to our community in safe ways, dancing and playing together outside starting in December 2020. We miss you all!

Ecstatic Dance San Diego is an alcohol-free, barefoot, free form dance event in San Diego. 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 page ("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 or barefoot on the earth soon.

Alchemy in Motion~ A Movement Ritual
Facilitated by Devra Gregory
8:15pm - 9:00pm
Dev will guide you through the 7 operations of Hermetic Alchemy, the unification of body and soul through dance and movement. In Alchemical Transformation the ego is consumed by fire turning “lead”; the things that are holding us back in life, into “gold”; the illuminated Spirit. There are 7 distinctive stages of Alchemy, each one contributing to and building upon the next stage: Calcination- burning away the old, Dissolution- exploring subconsciously what is left in the ashes, Separation- making a conscious choice what to keep and what to discard, Conjunction- the union of opposites, Fermentation- the ripening of a new way, Distillation- the refinement of the Spirit and Coagulation- the perfection of the soul in a body.
This facilitated hour builds in stages, please arrive by 8:00 to begin the alchemical process together in a safe and sacred container.
Dev (Devra Gregory) is a Spiritual mentor, massage therapist, ritual leader, Wiccan High Priestess and master workshop facilitator with a background in entertainment and dance. She started her career in classical ballet and had a professional career in dance and theatre for over 40 years.
Dev is the founder of the Sacred Flame Fire Tribe, a Pagan collective. Her work on the planet is to Awaken the Magick in life and bring the physical and spiritual worlds into one unified whole; “As Above, So Below” as in Alchemy.

Ecstatic Dance Journey
Featuring Heather Christie
9pm-11pm

Heather Christie is a folk-soul singer, producer, DJ, and the founder of motherhood-focused record label, Möonbabe Records. Her indelible curiosity and independence have led her on a lifelong creative journey exploring the performing arts, dance, and music production. After releasing music through several collaborative projects, she’s harnessed her cumulative talent and DIY spirit under her own name.
Raised in Santa Cruz by a family of Grateful Dead lovers, she’s followed the dream of performing since five years old, spending her childhood in classical choir, teen singing competitions, and starring in Broadway musicals. In college, she discovered modern dance and became inspired by the avant-garde choreographer Anna Halprin. When Heather started learning Ableton she saw an opportunity to connect with people through bass and trance energy, unlocking new realms of consciousness and self-identity.
