©2023 ECSTATIC DANCE
Beat Church Asheville
Beat Church Asheville is bootie shakin’, soul cleansing temple for radical inclusion, connection and self expression led by a live DJ in a safe container, and in an inspiring space. We offer a class (it changes each month) before the open dance begins, tea service, have massage therapists on site, and allow for connecting off the dance floor with others who believe dance is medicine.
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) on the dance floor
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.
