April Ecstatic Dance coming up!
April Ecstatic Dance on Saturday 4/3 from 2-3 pm with Kat
This class is about full fledged, full expression, full bodied, intuitive movement. The intention is to give you collective support in order to use dancing as a modality for healing. To listen to what the body wants and needs. To work on internal struggles in a fun, safe container. To get you out of your head, ego constructs, and limitations of how a person should look or move. To feel vulnerable and free and appreciated in that openness all at once.
ANYONE and EVERYONE is welcome! Bring a friend! Any gendered spectrum of human being is empowered and worshipped in this safe container
We will be located in a giant open field behind The Carillon Tower at Dogwood Dell (swipe for exact location). There’s lots of room to flail, feel, and move your way through anything. We will be respecting proper social distancing and healthy boundaries.
We will be dancing rain or shine️ (but not cold rain) so please wear clothes that you can move freely and be comfortable in. Bring water and a towel/ blanket.
This class is donation based and all proceeds will go to @rvacommunityfridges who are hard at work getting free fridges set up to feed the community all over Richmond, Virginia
*This is a fledgling Ecstatic Dance page. Come out and dance with us so we can establish Richmond’s weekly Ecstatic Dance community! If you can’t come in April but are interested in being a part of the movement, please email us!*

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.
