WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?
Ecstatic dance is about exploring movement, expressing emotion, enjoying our bodies, celebrating our souls, healing our minds, getting in touch with our natural instincts and honouring our roots! There are just a few rules: No drugs or alcohol, no shoes and talking on the dance floor. People of all ages, genders, sexualities, orientations, bodies, abilities, ethnicities, religions are welcome and encouraged to come dance and be part of our community!
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
It looks like whatever you want! Wild, sensual, playful, childlike, fluid, erratic. You are free to do whatever you want, whatever you need, whatever feels good! There is no judgement in ecstatic dance!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO WE DANCE TO?
Anthony describes his music as "somewhere between deep and uplifting house mixed with soulful electronic that has been chilled out" and Laura describes her music as a "mix of global, tribal electronica and trip hop."
WHAT SHOULD YOU WEAR?
Whatever you want, so long as you its comfortable and you can dance in it! Most dancers wear what they would wear to a yoga class but some like to dress in long skirts and dresses, flowing sleeves and loose pants.
