WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?

It's a dance/movement practice to 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. Move your body, unleash the wild dancing self without caring what people think, claim your freedom, open your heart & touch the infinite!

WHAT MUSIC TO EXPECT: “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.”

Warm-up: stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave. The Practice: freestyle dancing to a large sound wave featuring Live DJ set. 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. Ecstatic Dance usually ends with a relaxation.

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

No experience necessary.

Dance by yourself, with family, beloved or friends - at home, in the garden or outdoors! You'll not be alone! And we're pretty sure that many other dancers from the worldwide ecstatic dance community will join us too! You and your awesome friends are invited to join us for various regular ONLINE freestyle, expressive dance & moving meditation classes.

Enjoy our Ecstatic Dance journeys, wherever you are in the world and keep the wonderful ecstatic dance energies awake, alive, and aligned!

Big love, Seth & Dee x

3) No spectating please: This is a virtual dance-floor and we ask that we keep this space as a sacred dance space. Ecstatic Dance is not a show but an active participation experience and practice.

"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
