Hi! Jenny Severo here, Founder of Ecstatic Dance Kansas City! Welcome!! We have been growing strong for over 5 years now. You’ll find a beautiful connected dance community here.
For those new to Ecstatic Dance ~ it is a world-wide movement that combines the freedom of a Festival Experience with the Awareness of a Conscious Dance Practice.
It’s a free-form movement journey, held in a safe and sacred container, & facilitated by a professional DJ. It’s a place where we can be our unique selves while staying connected to a common source.
The guidelines/agreements we follow are a huge part of what makes Ecstatic Dance so unique, transformative and life-changing. These agreements are what cultivate a safe and sacred distraction-free environment.
~ No talking on the dance floor once the dance starts (please keep conversations off of the dance floor and watch your volume as sounds do carry).
~ No street shoes on the dance floor (bare feet or socks are best. This helps you connect to the ground, and keeps people safe from stepping on toes. Also, it protects the floor).
~ Please no photos or video (I know it’s tempting in a world where we document everything. Un-plugging while at dance not only allows you to be fully present in the experience, it also makes everyone feel safe to explore the freedom of their dance practice without being photographed or filmed).
~ Ecstatic Dance is drug and alcohol-free.
~ Please respect the space. (Help honor it and keep it clean). Also, please respect the space of other dancers. (Get consent before dancing with someone or touching them).
Thank your for doing your part in following these guidelines!
See you on the dance floor!
