Elysha started dancing at the tender age of 3, expressing her emotional and physical intelligence through the mediums of Tap, Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary disciplines. In later years, through travelling the world, she discovered the art that is Ecstatic Dance, finding flow and feminine embodiment by tapping into the vibrations, energy and healing through sound and movement. She has held and facilitated multiple meditations over the last 3 years for both women & men and collaborates today through various spaces & events to empower others in their own unique Movement Meditation in the dance of Life!

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.
