*** DJ HEARTBEAT — known for his mesmerizing, heart-opening, magical musical mixes that span dance tracks, world beat, chill out, tribal rhythms, reggae, electronica, flowing trance, dynamite covers, well-placed surprises.
*** Lloyd Barde has an instinctive gift for providing music for creative dance, movement & healing inspiration. As DJ Heartbeat, he brings an exquisite depth of knowledge and presence to his work as Movement Wizard, playing music that invites the body to move and inspires the heart to soar. Besides his vast music collection, spanning six decades in all styles, is his innate sense of “reading the room” and tuning into his audience. His music is both playful, unexpected, and lends a special “live magic”.
“Of all the many DJs I enjoy, DJ Heartbeat is the most inventive and spontaneous and fun, with his ability to respond to the dancer’s energies around him. He’s the best alternative DJ I’ve ever heard!” — W. Lewis
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.
