Ecstatic Dance Massachusetts

Ecstatic Dance Massachusetts

Ecstatic dance is about joining together in the simple and courageous act of freeform dance. These events of self-expression are designed to create movement, music and community.

The 3 Rules of Ecstatic Dance:

We Dance Barefoot

(connect and ground yourself with Earth; plus no sand in your shoes!)

We Dance Without Words

(communicate with body language, express yourself! But know how to give/get consent to enter personal spaces)

We Dance As We Are

(no drugs/alcohol, no phones, no fears, no judgments)

Our Dances Typically Include:

  • a group yoga or breathing & stretching session 

  • an opening circle / meditation 

  • a 1.5 hour Silent Disco style Ecstatic Dance 

  • A closing sunset meditation 

Remember: You are free to dance/not dance, stretch/not stretch, sit, observe, and whatever you feel comfortable with. But remember, always respect each other’s space!
