What is Ecstatic Dance?
It is a dance experience, where we are free from talking, phones, alcohol & substances, shoes and judgement. It is done ceremonially with an opening and closing circle, and there is some gentle guidance into the body to help you drop into the dance journey. Some people describe it as a movement meditation, you naturally can get into altered states of consciousness.
You may reach a state of ecstasy, but that is not the goal. It is to step away from the all the noise and chatter of our minds and connect with our bodies authentically.
What music is played?
Music from across the world from tribal to house, from electro swing to celtic to drum & bass, the aim is to get people dancing, move their bodies in all sorts of ways, and access a range of feelings that music inevitably brings.
Every Ecstatic Dance event you try out will have a different vibe depending on the music, facilitator and organiser. Some may lean towards the shamanic tracks, some are tantric, some have a spiritual slant. This event is all about experimenting with a really wide variety of music, we play with our movements, we mix up our genres and we get creative.
