©2023 ECSTATIC DANCE
Release: Ecstatic Dance Williamsburg
On Friday March 24th at 5 pm, we will hold an ecstatic dance at Williamsburg Baptist Church in the courtyard (inside in case of rain). Ecstatic dance is an alcohol-free, body-positive space for healing body movement. You do not even have to dance. You can bring a yoga mat or chair and sit the whole time if you like. Ecstatic dances are usually technology-free and talking-free so that introverts and extroverts alike can have a healing experience. Please bring your own water and something comfortable to sit on if you like. We will go for about an hour.
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.
