©2023 ECSTATIC DANCE
Ventura Ecstatic Dance
Dance with rotating monthly community DJs in a welcoming space! In this family-friendly community event, we leave our shoes, cellphones, and conversations at the door as we welcome ecstatic freeform self-expression in a safe container. We will begin with an opening circle and warm-up, expand into freeform movement with a playful DJ set curated by different community members, then conclude with a closing circle. Free your body. Free your mind. Connect with yourself and your community to celebrate life!
(This is a substance-free open movement event with NO prior dance experience necessary, welcome to ALL ages and abilities— including kids!)
Ecstatic Dance – 3 Simple Guidelines
1. 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
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.
