There was a moment when I wanted to have a little cry, because of the abundance of beauty... And then there were those moments when I was completely lost in the music... Thank YOU. ♥ " "It was amazing!! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon with amazing tunes in a splendid environment!! Thank you everyone for your lovely presence and jubilant energy!!"

What we're about

Enter an open space... and with bare feet explore the exhilarating feeling of moving your body freely. You are invited to move, play, connect, sweat, stretch, sound, unwind, renew, release, contact dance, improvise, transform. Be true to yourself, while respecting others in the sacred space we create together. This is a safe and respectful environment that embraces 'all ways'. It is a practice that supports the free expression of emotions and inner space through movement and music.

Our intention is self-exploration, connection, healing, expanding human potential and community building through freestyle ecstatic dance. No experience necessary.

PRACTICE SPECIFICS...

Warm-up: 20 minutes people arrive, stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave.

The Practice: 100 minutes of freestyle dancing to a large sound wave. Some guidance is provided. We let the music, the community and our own inner space direct our steps, our movements, our expression, our journey.

Closing Circle: 5 minutes of OM`ing and/or group sound making, laughing and/or silence.

Tribal Social: 30 minutes of sharing food/drink/chat...just blissing out in the post Ecstatic Dance experience.
