COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT : Please arrive on time for opening circle!! Doors open @ 6pm for warmup + we will begin opening circle @ 6:30. No late arrivals will be permitted any later than 6:40!! This is to honor the safety + integrity of our container. If you are not there to presence yourself at opening circle we ask that you come again and try next time. Ticket transfers will be honored for the next dance ~only~ and then will expire. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to participate in making our container as consistent and clear as possible.

WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE :

Ecstatic dance is an opportunity/space to dive deeper into personal self-expression + expansion through free-form movement in a non-judgmental, sober, trauma-informed space. We invite you to come as you are + move how you like!

 

WHAT TO EXPECT :

The Ecstatic Dance “wave” will take you on a journey through a landscape of melody + beats, increasing in intensity until the peak, from there you will be guided back down and into “stillness”. Once the music starts we will enter a non-verbal space to allow our bodies to do the talking. If you find your mind racing, that’s okay! We encourage you to return your focus to your movements + your body as many times as you need. That is why we call this a “practice” after all!

 

Wear comfy clothes + bring a water bottle. Limited on space so we don’t recommend bringing personal yoga mats or pillows. We will begin with a few minutes of light music to warm-up our bodies. Then we will gather for an opening circle to hear our agreements + belong ourselves. Please be on time so you don’t miss out! We will finish with a soothing sound-bath + closing circle for integration.

 

BENEFITS OF ECSTATIC DANCE :

When you stay with the process, unexpected things can emerge: internal epiphanies, a newfound love for oneself, a deeper connection to your fellow dancers + community. Because what we practice on the dance floor follows us into our daily lives, this practice is a beautiful way to explore connection, practice bodily autonomy + play with your own flavor of self-expression without fear of being recorded or judged.

 

Come dance with us! We can’t wait to meet you in your brilliance.

“There is a dance only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now, always changing, always true. Are you willing to listen with fascination? If you are, it will deliver you into the self you have always dreamed you could be. This is a promise.” ~ Gabrielle Roth
