About this event

What is Ecstatic Dance?

You are warmly invited to come and dance with us at Bossingham Village Hall, we have direct access to a secluded garden and inside a sprung wooden floor, perfect for dancing!

Dance has become synonymous with booze and drugs and in order to dance freely in the established way of clubbing we had to loosen up and get out of our heads.

Well here at Bearfoot we say, no more! Let’s change that paradigm, there is another way to dance and do what humans have done since….well since humans began and that is to dance however the body is moved to dance, by the music.

With Ecstatic Dance we get out of the head thinking process, with full consciousness, to allow the free movement of our bodies to transform our natural energy flow.

Humans tend to store negative thoughts and feelings in the tissues of the body and we believe dance is the simplest, most beautiful, most cathartic key to release overwhelm, fear, anger, worry, stress and so many other emotions quickly and easily, whilst increasing all the natural feel good vibes that we all possess.

Dance is a part of every human, there is no such thing as “I can’t dance”. We all can, we just move in different ways, that’s all and there is no right or wrong. All expressions of dance are welcome (within respectful reason) at Bearfoot Hill!

What happens at Ecstatic Dance

Throughout the year we are offering silent disco Ecstatic Dance outside in nature when the sun shines, no noise pollution and when its time to hibernate we will go inside for the cooler winter months.

You will be listening to incredible live DJ set, a journey around the world, facilitated and guided by Sarah to bring you into your body, to ease you into a place where you feel able to dance like no-one is watching, to dance your prayers, your tears, your joy, your fears, your happiness, your sadness, your grief and your love and allow the waves of music to dance you.

When this cycle of movement comes to a close, you will be guided to drop slowly into the gorgeous greenness of the earth to rest and integrate all that you are, and experience the full human cycle of movement, release, growth and stillness.
