Ecstatic Dance Cornwall - Fun-Sun-Day
We believe that dance invigorates life, that our inner child has the need to play and courage to dance with free creative expression. We create a safe non-judgmental space for our inner wild side to explore this. The dance is a means to creating a caring compassionate community full of vitality.
Ecstatic dance is an expression of free form dance that combines the awareness of mind, body, heart, and soul. This invites people to connect to themselves and others through music and therefore is a movement meditation.
The ecstatic dance space is a safe container that is held and created without judgment and thus a sacred space to dance, move, roll, release, express. It can be fun, exhilarating, uplifting, liberating and much more.
The dance journey takes place over a period of 2 hours and is a DJ led musical discovery, covering various genre and starts with warm-up music, to a slow gentle tempo, which over a period of time reaches peaks of faster beats and then subsides to a slow gentle soft warm downtempo. There may also be a sound healing at the end to embody the experience of the dance.
The dance starts with a short opening and finishes with a closing circle led by a ceremony leader.
