Ecstatic Dance is a free-form, not structured dance space. In its most elemental definition, it’s a free-form dance movement inspired and led by carefully crafted music with the intention of creating a healing journey. No dance experience or partner is necessary or needed. It is an environment without observers, judgments, posturing, attitudes, conversations, shoes, alcohol or smoke. Space where everyone can feel spontaneously safe to try new things and push their edges. This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching, allowing your body to move freely without judgment. It is an inner/outer journey, an authentic moving meditation where true presence is experienced. Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, ages, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and the fearlessness with which others move gives permission and courage to dance without inhibition.
