~ Facilitator ~
Antje Martina Schaefer is an embodiment facilitator, Somatic coach and community curator. As an ambassador of dance as a pathway toward intimacy and transformation she is the founder of Nectar Fusion and co-creator of Cocréa Mindful Partner Dance. Her teaching style is somatically-oriented, relationship-focused, playful and encouraging to support people in living courageously while being deeply at home in themselves.

~ Workshop ~
Nectar Fusion Partner Dance
Facilitated by Antje Schaefer

Nectar Fusion is an incubator for exploring deeper connection through co-created movement. While the common language shares the framework of traditional social dance - creative expression, authentic connection and play take precedence over form. The workshop will be a welcoming gateway into the partner dance world, creative expression and authentic connection.

~ What is Ecstatic Dance? ~

Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and permission to dance without inhibition. Through dance, we believe everyone can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. By engaging our senses and listening to our bodies, we connect to others and shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own.

~ Some Loving Guidelines ~

In order to create the ideal container, let's:
~ Allow ourselves freedom from cell phones
~ Let go of judgments of self and others – your dance is your unique expression
~ Connect with our bodies while respecting our “yes” and honoring our “no”
~ Be mindful to the boundaries of others and the space that we share
~ Let our dance be our voice, instead of words, during the ecstatic dance
~ Give our feet back their soul by removing our shoes in the movement space
~ Respect the privacy of the container so that our truest expression can be unlocked

Please -
~ No shoes, cell phones, or photography in the movement space
~ Reserve conversations for the community spaces during the ecstatic dance
~ Practice consent - let’s do our best to make this is a safer space
~ Be clear-minded - this is a substance/alcohol-free event :)

The event is for ages 18+ (except for special dates)


Our goal is to create loving and inclusive events. This will be a safer space for people of all colors, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations. Please practice proper consent and be mindful of the friends around you. Guardians of the Vibe will be on location to support if needed. ✨

~ Admission ~
$25/$35 (pay what you can) online
$17 Single Parent / Low Income Offering (Limited amount)
$27-40 (sliding scale) at the door (the event may sell out before doors)

We kindly ask that our guests get their ticket online so we can be better prepared with quantities of cacao, tea, kava etc. It will also allow you quicker access to the event.

Thank you for selecting a ticket price that reflects where you are at financially. It is important to us that everyone in our community feels as though they have the opportunity to participate. Your honesty and generosity help to make that a reality.

We are excited to be with you soon!
