Ecstatic Dance Big Island began
on the Dance Floors of Kalani,
Puna, Big Island.
Founded by Bodhi Tara in 2000,
who made new mix tapes each and every week to dance to and share with the dancers who showed up to move.
Max Fathom was offered the torch in 2001,
who had learned of Gabrielle Roth's 5 Rhythms
and Conscious Dance through Body Choir in Austin, Texas,
fell in love with electronic music on the Playa...
blended the two...
and helped to birth the next Generation of Conscious Dance.
Max, E-lizabeth & Community
carried the Wild & Ecstatic torch there until 2009.
Kalani and its Volunteers now run the Sunday Morning Ecstatic Dance.
