Drum Circle- we gather as a community and share rhythm with drums in a circle around the room. We will play along with the music that is playing.
Ecstatic dance is a form of dance in which the dancers move freely as the music takes them, without any choreography. Ecstatic dance helps connect dancers to their emotions and feelings and fosters community and connection between the dancers. Ecstatic dancing allows for somatic movement, feeling what the body needs in the moment while also getting in a great workout and stress relief. If you are feeling anxious or disconnected with others or yourself, this is a great form of therapy for your body, mind, and soul.
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.
