“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 Delighted to dance our way through the holiday season with special guests Robin Shaw & Nelson Tetreault to lead our Dance lab in contact improv connection! We'll meet and greet and get on our feet... connect with self, connect with other, connect with the space ... through movement awareness in guided warming and learning then dive into an ecstatic dance wave of full expression! Excited to bring the sweet collective celebration of the holiday season into the dance with you all 🌀 <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 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.
