Ecstatic Dance

Birthed from the Ecstatic Dance community, we feature spirited beats for your auditory pleasure in a beautiful outdoor socially distanced grassy setting. Let us celebrate that as we dance in the sacred hollow.
This is a gathering and creation of a sacred dance floor for us to move and shake ourselves and our expectations. We strive to connect inward and forge a community free of judgement and full of consciousness.
Bring your own blanket, snacks, and a will to move. Blankets and people should be consciously spaced out to give people room to dance and respecting boundaries.
Audio options are:
1. Over speakers
2. Under FM earbuds for a deep journey
This is a chance for dancers to move their bodies and souls to the music. While talking isn’t forbidden, please notice and respect dancers tuned into the music and their own flow.
Contact Improv requires consent so please check in first and respect dancer’s boundaries. Only approach if they make eye contact and always be prepared to receive a “no”.
We all need to do what we feel is best to take care of ourselves. Those wishing to stay at home can ask Steven for the link to the track.
May the Spirit of Dance lift you up on the Wings of Freedom 🕊
Jesse puts on a delicious house set immediately after from 3pm-6:30pm

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.
