Hosted By: http://www.tribaldancecommunity.com/ Time: 7:30pm-9:30pm Cost: $12-$15 (sliding Scale) In modern day culture, dance is predominantly seen as entertainment for those who can dance. Yet every culture in the world has their own form of Ecstatic Dance ... a dance gathering which is for everybody! Ecstatic Dance is a way we use to gather as a community or tribe and dance to rhythms and sounds. And it seems that our ancestors danced for every reason under the sun! Dance as a way of... Celebration. Fun, play and humour. Understanding and exploring. Body love, community love, earth love. Manifesting hopes, dreams and visions. Expression and freedom. Changing perspective. Expanding awareness. Health and wellness. Unfolding potential. Transformation. Positive social gathering. Dance as a way. Ecstatic Dance Mondays & Thursdays is our modern way of getting together to dance for any of these reasons. There is no teacher in this space. You are free to move. There is no one way to dance, only infinite ways of dancing.
Hosted By: http://www.themovecollective.org/ Time: 7:30pm-9:30pm Cost: $12-15 (sliding scale) We started THE MOVE because we all love to move and groove. Simply put, for the sheer love of dance! We recognize that while the love of dance is essential to create dance gatherings, we also want to create a loving, safe, and fun space for all to enjoy. Collectively, after many vibrant meetings back in[masked], our founders came up with a strong vision. Here are the main values we hold near and dear for our dance collective. We welcome new members, movement lovers shy or bold dancers to join and be co-creators of this wonderful vision we are unfolding... We hold the strong intention to honour movement and dance as an essential and powerful expression of self and connection to others. The healing and artistic nature of movement is acknowledged by us movers, who recognize fun, play and humour are vital to this practice. We commit to providing an ongoing inclusive space that is body loving and body positive and encourages movement for men and women, people of a variety of ages, sizes, and backgrounds. We celebrate our connection to each other, to the earth, and to the dance of life, in our weekly dance gatherings called THE MOVE. We dance in silence, which allows us to drop deeper into the experience of body movement and non-verbal connection through dance. For those who wish to talk, we request that you go outside in the hallway to speak. No one person is the leader of THE MOVE, and no one movement modality is the way or the path of THE MOVE. Some of us are influenced and inspired by our study of embodied movement and/or spiritual practices such as Soul Motion™, Authentic Movement, 5Rhythms®, Contact Improv, Continuum, Dance Our Way Home™, Eurythmy, and Soul Voice™. 7:30pm-8:00 Warmup and Open Movement/Dancing 8:00-8:15 Opening Circle and Guided Meditation 8:15-9:30 Open Dancing/Movement, starting slow, building up, finally cooling down 9:30 Closing Circle and Sounding (Usually) 9:30-10:15 Socializing
