Ecstatic Dance Italy Festival

Ecstatic Dance

Welcome to the first Ecstatic Dance Italy Festival, a unique and immersive experience awaits you!
Three days of movement, relaxation and connection in a wonderful temple immersed in the nature of central Italy.
From 29th September till 1st October 2023
At the holistic retreat center Borgoacquapaola
near Bracciano Lake – Rome
A Festival where you can explore your body, dancing to your most authentic essence, helping you discover who you are. You will be able to immerse yourself in the vital energy of Ecstatic Dance, experiencing different methods of Conscious Movement, Breathing and Yoga practices, enjoy regenerating Gong Baths, participate in meditative concerts in Nature and much more.
The theme of the journey we will experience together will be enthusiasm: a force that gives fuel to change and transformation, based on an unprovable but palpable, vibrant confidence that allows us to see things with the open eyes of an innocent child, to throw ourselves into life driven by a healthy and responsible madness… in fact, the origins of the word come from the Greek en-theos: ‘to have a god inside’, or to be inspired by an irresistible and unstoppable force…
This Festival was conceived to bring together the entire Ecstatic Dance community in Italy, which has been growing more and more in many Italian cities since 2015. Ecstatic Dance is a new way of making community, of being together, of finding ourselves dancing in the spontaneity of authentic relationships, in a sacred space where our deepest and most intimate intentions and our hearts are protected and find the freedom to open up, bloom, and manifest themselves in all their beauty and grandeur.
Don’t miss the opportunity to have a unique transformative experience at the first Ecstatic Dance Italy Festival, facilitated by a community of like-minded people ready to share three unforgettable days of pure vitality, authentic relationships, and regeneration!

Dance Guidelines

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.
