1. Are there guidelines for an Ecstatic Dance?
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.
We Dance without words. We Dance with body language, this makes it easier to be in a Meditative State.
We Dance as We Are.
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Should’s, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another. If someone comes up and wants to dance with you, and you aren’t feeling it, simply hold your hands together in prayer formation over your heart to politely decline their invitation.
We leave our phones behind. The only story you’re broadcasting is the joy of your body, being present in the movement.
2. What should I bring to the event?
Bring a water bottle and plan to wear loose clothing that you are comfortable moving in from goddess skirts, yoga to gym attire – wear what has resonance for you + feels supportive to your intention of unleashing – all is welcome!
We will have a coat check available at check in and place for shoes.
3. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, but it never hurts to have a backup.
4. Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?
Yes, as long as you are prepared with the name of the ticket holder we will be able to check you in.
