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!
