be present. NO PHONES. NO CAMERAS.
be embodied. NO TALKING.
BE CLEAR. NO INTOXICANTS.
BE CONSENSUAL. LISTEN FOR A YES. RESPECT A NO.
BE HERE. NO OUTSIDE SHOES.
BE FREE. DANCE HOW YOU WANT. NO JUDGEMENT. When we step on the dance floor, we include our whole selves, even the frightened parts that want to hide.
Clear space in your dancing area. You don’t need a lot of room and can do it from a chair. A yoga mat is nice if your floor is hard.

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.
