ABOUT ECSTATIC DANCE:

Enter an open space...and with your bare feet explore the exhilarating feeling of moving your body freely. You are invited to move, play, connect, sweat, stretch, sound, unwind, renew, release, improvise, transform. Be true to yourself, while respecting your body, in this space that we co-create together.

Our Ecstatic Dance events create a safe and respectful environment that embraces 'all ways'. We offer a movement practice that supports your free expression of emotions and inner space through movement and music.

Our intention for these Ecstatic Dance events is self-exploration, connection, fun, healing, expanding human potential and community building through freestyle ecstatic dance.

No experience necessary.

ECSTATIC DANCE PRACTICE SPECIFICS:

Warm-up: 15 minutes people get online, stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave.

The Practice: 90 minutes of freestyle dancing to a large sound wave featuring Live DJ set with our resident DJ Seth Newman. Some guidance & facilitation will be provided. And then we will let the music, the community and our own inner space direct our steps, our movements, our expression, our journey.

Live Music Sound Journey & Relaxation : 15 minutes of Deep Relaxation.

"Our bodies instinctively know what feels good or bad, right or wrong. However, often our heads get in the way. Ecstatic Dance is about finding our way through to what feels good. How can we use dance to consciously transform towards finding joy, without denying our anger or sadness?  Ask yourself: what’s my body feeling in this moment? Does it feel good moving this way, or that? Does it feel nourishing to dance with another, or dance solo? Where do I most feel connected with Self? Let your body lead the way." ~ Abigail Harris

ECSTATIC DANCE GUIDELINES:

1. No talking during the dance (welcome to chat before/after dance)

2. Drug-Free, Smoke-Free, Alcohol-Free environment

3. Care/Awareness for the co-created space and each other

4. Move your body however you wish

WHAT TO EXPECT:

1. Next-level, conscious, inspiring electronic dance music

2. A beautiful, sacred, heartful and fun dance journey

3. A safe space for you to dance freely in

4. Vibrant people who love to dance and love music!

ABOUT THE MUSIC:

“Enlightened Electro, World Beat, Deep House and Downtempo Bliss, plus a few surprises slipped in for good measure! Ecstatic Music Journeys for Conscious Movement and Sacred Celebration.”

WHY CACAO & ECSTATIC DANCE?

Cacao is the ultimate heart opener, it will give you energy, revitalise your BodyMind inviting you to express, release & unleash your creativity during the dance!

◈ Join us to explore Cacao + Ecstatic Dance as a potent synthesis for Transformation!

Release what no longer serves you, and invite in what you want more of in your life!

ABOUT DJ AND FACILITATOR:

◈ Sessions are facilitated and DJed by Seth Newman, Seth is the pioneer of Ecstatic Dance in the UK, who started Ecstatic Dance journeys with his band Urubu & Ecstatic Dance London in 2009 and has been running conscious dance & sober rave events as well as various body-mind integration classes and workshops for many years.

◈ His inspiration for these events come from many sources including Humanistic & Body Psychotherapy, the Human Potential Movement, 5 Rhythms, Active meditations and from the teachings of the Indian Mystic Osho whom he grew up with in India in the 1970s.
