April 8th May 12th 11:30 am-1:00 pm
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 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.
Special Night Events:
Friday April 20th 7:30 pm.
Please note: this month's "Special Ecstatic Dance event" is on FRIDAY, not Saturday. Starts at 7:30pm.
For this month's theme, we will be dancing to music "For the Mature at Heart". Some songs may have explicit language, alluring rhythms, controversial topics. There are many incredible songs that we have shelved for our child-friendly Sunday morning dances. This is an opportunity for those songs to be heard and enjoyed, for an adult-only audience!
All of our Sunday morning guidelines apply to this dance - practicing safety, choices, boundaries.
