Nexus Ecstatic Dance
Nexus Ecstatic Dance is a free form dance space curated by Brian Edgar and the Nexus Ecstatic Dance Santa Cruz team. We enjoy a 2-wave format with contemporary bass music woven by a professional Ecstatic Dance DJ.
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.
We follow the simple Ecstatic Dance Guidelines. In addition, we are actively practicing inclusivity, diversifying leadership, and practicing racial equity, in our own way. Our space is held as expressly anti-racist.
