Ecstatic Dance Durango, CO
Ecstatic Dance is a free form dance party rooted in Creativity, Connection, and Consent. The intention is a safe, sacred, and fun experience for all! It is a playful atmosphere where we move however we wish with inspiring music from around the world mixed by a different live DJ every week! We invite deep journeys into the body’s wisdom, self-awareness, spirit, and our fellow human animals. 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 chit chat and no phones on the dance floor. All dancing with another must be consensual—a bow of the hands in prayer pose communicates that “I would like to dance alone, thank you.” Please limit conversation to the outskirts of the dance floor.
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.
