Guidelines for Ecstatic Dance
1. We Dance Barefoot/Without Shoes
This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)—though, if you have a physical condition whereby you need dance shoes, we do understand ❤️
2. We Dance ‘Without Words’ or with Body Language
This makes it easier to be in a more present, immersed state. Sounds and chanting in concert with the music and flow may be fitting as part of the moment, but we reserve verbal conversation between dancers for outside the dance circle. We enter the circle with reverence and intention.
3. We Dance as We Are
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video (unless consented to by all for occasional exceptions such as promotional material), No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
