WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?
Ecstatic Dance is about self-expression through free-form dance and movement. It’s a moving meditation that brings together the awareness of mind, body, heart, and soul; authentically connecting with your whole being and authentically connecting with those around you.We use the following guidelines to create a safe, held and sacred space for you to express, expand and experience rejuvenation through movement, dance, and sound:- be here: no outside shoes- be free: dance how you want / no judgment- be present: no phones / cameras- be clear: no intoxicants- be embodied: no talking
– be consensual: respect boundaries / if it’s not a clear yes, it’s a no
