About Ecstatic Dance
Ecstatic Dance is a free-form conscious dance meditation journey to curated music in a safe and conversation-free space.
Ecstatic Dance can be prayerful, invigorating, and/or transformational
when participants adhere to the following:
COVID-19 Safety Protocols:
nose/mouth masks REQUIRED
limited to 10 participants
social distancing must be maintained at all times
bring your own mug/water bottle
ECSTATIC DANCE GUIDELINES & AGREEMENTS:
Move however you wish -- as little, as much, however feels right for your body and your journey
Respect yourself and one another
No talking on the dance floor (only whispers off the floor)
No alcohol or illegal drugs
No street shoes on the dance floor. House shoes/slippers/warm socks are recommended in colder months.
No photos, videos, or scents
Dance alone and/or with another. Feel free to invite someone to dance -- and wait for a clear "YES" signal. But also respect any "NO", which might include just being ignored.
Respect a solo dancer's right to space
Arrive timely to respect the community -- latecomers may be turned away
The dance is appropriate for ages 14+ unless specifically indicated as an "ALL-AGES" dance
You will be asked to leave if you do not adhere to these guidelines.
There is plenty of space to sit and relax off the dance floor whenever you may need a break. Some locations will have water, tea, and snacks available.
Ultimately, Ecstatic Dance is what you make of it!
According to www.ecstaticdance.org, Ecstatic Dance is
a freeform movement space where:
creativity breaks out
ritual is reinvented
The beat deepens
as an electronic tapestry
of world rhythms
weaves us together
within a greater family.
