Ecstatic Dance

Our monthly theme is “inner child”, with awareness of how do we evoke play instead of “work”? Playing an instrument, role play, playing with art, our bodies in movement, playing is a way to turn on joy, imagination, and to stimulate diverse areas of the brain. It’s a great way to get unstuck, out of old patterns and into ways of being thru innocent exploration.
It is a free-form dance practice where participants can gather to dance to music without the need of following the instructions of a leader. In Ecstatic Dance the music is the leader and participants are free to weave their way through the different soundscapes.

Ecstatic Dance is a free form movement practice that you do from home, anywhere on earth and in your body. Some do it for exercise, to connect, as a spiritual experience, some do it for celebration, self care, expression, meditation, as a way to heal the body/mind, for the music, medicine and to connect to a loving supportive community. You can do this as you clean your home, ride in and airplane, around the table, pool, in the jungle, at the office, in your yoga space, at the beach, in the forest, while taking care of your kids ( kids are welcome), from the hospital, in bed, on the treadmill, from rehab center ( these are all places people have joined from) …
How? The circle opens with someone reading the guidelines…. Setting up the space. The music starts. You begin to notice how your body wants to move… however big or small… you rest when you need too and move as much and doing what feels good.
THESE ARE ONSITE AND ONLINE SOUL STUDIOS 2924 Hyde park st
Join us every Wednesday 10:30-12pm, Saturday 7:00-9:00pm and Sunday 10:30-12noon EASTERN TIME ZONE (check your time zone). Doors open 30 minutes prior to the dance for silent meditation or enjoy the soft music and get yourself warmed up, ready.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Who? We are a diverse and growing group of dancing enthusiasts from around the world that come together three times a week to move, play, dance, meditate, connect, heal, express and grow.
What? What started and still is, Ecstatic Dance SRQ in Sarasota Florida USA, has expanded during the COVID pandemic to include many from different countries. Over the last 8 months we’ve become closely connected and a naturally growing group of men, women, all ages, all colors and all identities.
How? We meet on zoom, from our homes….in different time zones and dance together. This is a sacred space and begins with an optional meditation 30 minutes before each dance, followed by a 15 minute warm-up offered by a community member and a 5 minute closing circle. Simply arrive either for the meditation or the dance of your choice with links below. Many times we stay after for an informal conversation/”afterparty” as well. No need to sign up ahead or anything. If you have the means, and enjoy it please donate (Dances usually go for $15 in our area, any amount is welcome that works for you) and THANK YOU SO MUCH! If you are financially not able to, please still join us!!!! Your presence is needed, important and adds to the dance for others as well.
When? Every Wednesday 9:30-11am, Saturday 7-9pm and Sunday 10:30-12noon eastern time zone. Remember to check a time zone app to find the time in your area.
Music? The music is DJ-ed by Kai (Kelly Atkins) with a blend of world, electronic conscious and sacred music blended with dubstep, club, rap, techno/house, instrumental and chill. The music is chosen to open your dance, to experience lots of different vibrations (healing musical qualities and solfeggio rhythms/harmonics), emotions and musical genres and to inspire creativity. Its set up in a wave format. Kelly Atkins has been creating playlists and soundscapes for dance and conscious movement many years and has great joy making unique sound journeys for every dance.

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.
