What we're about

Ecstatic Dance UK is a conscious dance events company based in London. Our mission is to create a safe, sacred space for people to come and express themselves through movement, regardless of age, gender, background or social status. We aim to make Ecstatic Dance more accessible to everyone, especially those who think dance is 'not for them'. We believe dancing is a form of therapy and can help us connect to oursleves and to others. We embrace inclusivity, freedom of expression, openness and positivity. Come and dance with us!

Ecstatic Dance UK - SUN•DAY

The Old Baths

London's Sunday morning Ecstatic Dance! Every 1st + 3rd Sunday in Hackney Wick Music, movement + mindfulness FORMAT 10.00 Doors open / Warm-up music 10.30 Opening circle 11.00 Ecstatic Dance 12.45 Sound healing + closing circle 13.00 Lunch (optional) WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE? ED is a type of free-form dancing inviting people to connect to themselves and to others through music and movement. It takes places over a 2-hour live DJ set and starts and finishes with a short opening and closing circle led by a Ceremony Leader. There are no teacher or rules, but we ask you to follow a few guidelines: 1. No talking. ED is a silent practice -you are welcome to communicate with others with your body language, but please keep words outside the space. 2. No shoes. Barefoot dancing helps us ground ourselves by creating direct contact between our feet and the floor. ED is best practiced barefoot but you can also wear socks if you wish to. 3. No drugs/alcohol. ED is a conscious practice embracing mindfulness. 4. Phone-free zone. Please keep your phones off/silent and out of sight. 5. Respect of self and other. We ask participants to take responsability for themselves, but also to watch out for others and be mindful of their personal space. Q&A -What to bring? You will most likely sweat, so bring a large water bottle (preferably reusable, we've put enough plastic on this planet) -What to wear? Dress in layers. Our events are judgement-free spaces, so feel free to dress however you wish, whether it's a t-shirt and leggings or a fully-sequined catsuit. As long as you're comfortable, anything goes! -What kind of music? ED music is eclectic and not linked to any specific genre. We start with ambient, chillout tunes then bring you on an ecstatic journey with electronica, EDM, world music and ethnic beats before bringing you back down with downtempo tracks and finish with a gentle sound bath. THE CAFÉ The Old Baths Café opens at 9.30 am on the day. You are most welcomed to stay over after the event for a well-deserved post-dance lunch and make new friends. PRICE £10.00 Early Bird £12.50 Advance £15.00 On the door (cash/card) Tickets available here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ecstatic-dance-uk-sunday-tickets-60684124851 RSVP on FB to get the latest updates: https://www.facebook.com/events/2009380729171488 We can't wait to see you there!
