Dance is a way to reclaim our ecstatic experience of life. It gets us out of our heads and into our bodies and the present moment.
Ecstatic dance is unchoreographed, yet supported. We come together in conscious community to connect with ourselves, each other, and a greater life force. We dance in a safe environment, free of judgment, that allows us to access the fun and healing power of creative expression through movement.
No previous dance experience is required. All ages and abilities welcome.
We'll begin with some basic guidelines and setting our individual intentions, then dance to a wide range of musical styles. As the session draws to a close, we'll return to stillness, with an invitation to reflect on the experience.
$10-15 per person. No one turned away.

About the instructors:
Alana McVey is a doctoral student at Marquette University and a certified Acro Revolution instructor. She holds a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology and has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She believes that current principles in clinical psychology are not so different from ancient yogic philosophies and likes to interweave both in her clinical practice and yoga/AcroYoga teaching.
Sean Mohundro has been practicing AcroYoga for just under two years. His interest in activities such as rock climbing, longboarding, and yoga have translated nicely into his AcroYoga practice.
