Conscious Dance Event
Flow Ecstatic Dance of Colorado Springs is a free form dance event with the goal of achieving ecstasy through engaging the senses and connecting to one’s flow state. This is a natural state in which one’s awareness may shift and experience a meditative and happy or peaceful state of mind through physical movement and embodiment. Free flow and creative dancing promotes health, wellness, a spiritual connection, and it’s a lot of fun!
Kick off your shoes, and enjoy a safe space to dance without conversations on the dance floor, drinking and the nightclub vibe. This is about getting great exercise, freeing your mind and listening to your body, mind, and heart to connect with yourself and others in a holistic way.
Flow Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and ethnicities to freely express themselves. The liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and fearlessness and seeing other people flow gives all those who participate permission and courage to dance without inhibition.
Families and all ages are welcome to join in on the celebration at each dance since they are professionally hosted and the music is family friendly. We are all encouraged to bring out our inner child while expressing ourselves!
Our event details::
Doors open at 6:00pm and our dance event begins at 6:30pm where we will set the container, with an opening ceremony to check in and go over basic information for the night, including methods to use dance as a form of medicine. One may also use this time to set an intention for the night, and we honor all without judgement.
In this opening circle, we may also sometimes facilitate a Cacao ceremony to honor our space, our community, and our hearts, led by our ceremonial leader, Justin Kovach.
We will then start with a short warm-up flow involving movement with the guidance of an instructor and to a live Dj. After that, and at about 8pm, we break free into Ecstatic dancing until at least 10:30p depending on the music artist and the crowd.
The music then chills-out at the end and we transition into meditative sound sometimes accompanied by singing bowls and other instruments, and voices, as we gather into a closing circle, once more to express our gratitude and share our experiences with one another if we wish.
We offer beverages and snacks, sometimes homemade goods, and live art.
Admission into Flow Dance is $15 which can be paid at the door with cash or Venmo, or discounted tickets are available online before the event at https://www.Eventbrite.com

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 Talking on the dance floor. A social space in the hallway is available.
3. No Alcohol, No Smoking, Plant medicine only, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
