Ecstatic Dance Durango
Ecstatic Dance Durango is a free form dance party happening monthly, rooted in the intention of a safe, sacred, and fun experience for all! Set to the soundscape of a different DJ/Producer or DJs, mixing an eclectic ecstatic blend of music, it is an expressive and accepting atmosphere, invoking deep journeys into self-awareness, spirit, and connections with others. All states of being are welcomed, whether happy, sad, expressive or not…the intention is medicine for all. Altar space is lovingly offered with the invitation to invoke the sacred within yourself. This is an alcohol-free event with no conversation and no phones on the dance floor. We generally offer opening and closing ceremonies, a warm up movement and live music sound bath.
We have been holding camp out events akin to a “micro-festival” that include food, fun and community. We just held a full on festival called Ascension, and are organizing Unison Festival happening at Tico Time River Resort September 9-12, near Durango, CO.

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.
