We have a groovy day to share with you Saturday. Instead of starting at 3pm like normal, we are having not three, but FOUR events in one. Please consider donating!
12:30pm – Arrival and Opening Circle
12:45pm – 1:30pm – Yoga with Concha Joy.
1:30pm – 3pm – Contact Dance Class with Kevin Elfman
3:15pm – 5:15pm – Ecstaturday Dance with LIVE GUEST DJ Gabriel Fransisco
5:30pm-7:30pm Yours truly, DJ Dreamself!
8pm – Closing Gratitude Circle
For a long time, many of you have been wanting to take a Yoga class with Concha… well here is your chance! Somatic, joyful and liberating, we are truly blessed to have this offering from a beloved long term Ecstaturday member.
If you were here for last month’s very popular class, you know how amazing of a Contact Improv Dance teacher Kevin is. Come learn to share the center of gravity and lean into the art of leaning.
And back from Hawaii, we have the OG, Gabriel Fransisco for a special Ecstaturday x Saturdance Collaboration Event. Known around the world to play delicious bass music, and in the middle of his mainland tour, Gabriel Fransisco was hosting at GGP during the peak of the pandemic.
Finally, yours truly, DJ Dreamself aka Steven Melter will be closing out the day with delicious whompy beats designed to help you move through that energetic body and into the ethereal realms through the power of magical bass beats.
Rooted in Ecstatic Dance principles, we feature spirited beats for your auditory pleasure in a spacious and beautiful outdoor grassy setting. We gather and co-create a grounding dance space to move and shake ourselves and our expectations. We strive to connect inward and outward to provide an opportunity for dancers to move their bodies and souls to the music.
Etiquette: No shoes, no talking, no alcohol, no phones, no judgements and no worries.
*While talking isn’t forbidden, please respect dancers tuned into the music and their own flow. Take your conversations outside of the dance space.*
*Ask for consent and give people space before engaging since many attendees take COVID precautions.*
Pro Tips: Bring your own blanket, snacks, and maybe even an offering to the community.
May the Spirit of Dance lift you up on the Wings of Freedom 🕊
Donations greatly appreciated, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

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.
