Ecstatic Dance DC with Tasha Blank
Sun, March 26, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
Ecstatic Dance DC (EDDC) is a community that is stoked about getting great exercise while liberating the mind and heart; connecting with self and with others in a vibrant, healthy space. We're excited about moving in organic and inventive ways that reflect how we feel, not how anyone else tells us to move.
DC native ... NYC legend ... Tasha Blank returns to our city to get super-silly-sacred-sweaty on a dance journey of epic proportions. She creates interactive sonic experiences that catalyze everything from underground warehouse parties and music festivals to morning raves and bass-heavy yoga events, and believes that dance is the quickest path to love in the here + now. She is the founder of The Get Down in NYC and her collaborations include Envision Festival, Burning Man, Wanderlust, Shiva Rae and the W Hotel. Check out Tasha's music here
Dress to sweat + move to heal. No booze, no shoes, no chit-chat on the dance floor. We come to move, play and drop the persona. There are spaces available for rest, stretching, mediation and connecting with others in conversation outside the dance floor.
Come and go as you please! You're encouraged to dive deep and welcome to stay throughout the entire experience, however it's not required. You may join just for the dance. All ages are welcome!

The music is curated as an arc with an ambient start, rising crescendo and a return to gentle ambiance. Sets feature a blend of high quality, recently released electronic dance music, world rhythms, funk, groove, jazz, throwbacks and hip-hop, depending on the personal flair of the guest DJ.
