Ecstatic Dance

Living Arts Dancewaves are an inclusive space for people to move freely and express themselves creatively. We are for everyBODY, no matter your age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability or dance ability. Dances last for 90 minutes, starting slow, building to a peak, and then returning to stillness, during which time you will get to experience the euphoria of music, rhythm and connection with others. We encourage you to take care of your body, to move at the pace and in the ways that feel best to you, and to honor other’s bodies by always seeking continual consent in your interactions with others.

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.
