© 2020 ECSTATIC DANCE
Every 2nd Saturday of each month, up to 120 people dance in Arrábida mountain (35 min. from Lisbon) in the natural park of Arrábida.
In this gathering we dance 100% where our infinite energy is revealed through movement.
This event is led by Virgílio Beatriz, one of the organizers, space holder and DJ of Ecstatic Dance Lisboa and a free dance and body consciousness enthusiast.
He's doing Ecstatic Dance since 2014 - regular in Portugal and also Brazil, India and Czech republic.
Ecstatic Dance Arrábida is in Ser Vivo in the natural park of Arrábida Mountains, which have a magical forest very close, and a old warehouse that has been remodeled, with a special floor to dance without limits! Its 200 square meters of dance floor : )))

2nd Saturday of each month
Espaço SerVivo - Vale dos Barris - Palmela (35 min. from Lisbon)
Ecstatic Dance - 3 Simple Guidelines
1. We Dance without shoes (or: We Dance Barefoot)
This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)
If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK
2. We Dance without words (or: We Dance with Body Language)
This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State
No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators
No Talking from the Dancers
3. We Dance as We Are
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
