GUEST DJ: Alex Sevilla

With 20 years experience in the music industry, Alex Sevilla first came across the conscious dance scene 2 years ago and has since then developed his own style and built himself a name amongst the international Ecstatic Dance community. Alex takes his influences from sounds around the world and shamanic music. Led by his ability to empathize with and feel the dancers, he guides and helps them connect with their most instinctive selves. He is a resident DJ at Ecstatic Dance Madrid and you can find him playing at festivals and ED across Europe. Check out his sets here: https://www.mixcloud.com/alex-sevilla/


WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?

ED is a type of free-form dancing inviting people to connect to themselves and to others through music and movement. It takes places over a 2-hour live DJ set and starts and finishes with a short opening and closing circle led by a Ceremony Leader. There are no teacher or rules, but we ask you to follow a few guidelines:

1. No talking. ED is a silent practice -you are welcome to communicate with others with your body language, but please keep words outside the space.
2. No shoes. Barefoot dancing helps us ground ourselves by creating direct contact between our feet and the floor. ED is best practiced barefoot but you can also wear socks if you wish to.
3. No drugs/alcohol. ED is a conscious practice embracing mindfulness.
4. Phone-free zone. Please keep your phones off/silent and out of sight.
5. Respect of self and other. We ask participants to take responsability for themselves, but also to watch out for others and be mindful of their personal space.

Q&A

-What to bring? You will most likely sweat, so bring a large water bottle (preferably reusable, we've put enough plastic on this planet) and a travel/camping mug for the complimentary herbal tea


-What to wear? Dress in layers. Our events are judgement-free spaces, so feel free to dress however you wish, whether it's a t-shirt and leggings or a fully-sequined catsuit. As long as you're comfortable, anything goes!

-What kind of music? ED music is eclectic and not linked to any specific genre. We start with ambient, chillout tunes then bring you on an ecstatic journey with electronica, EDM, world music and ethnic beats before bringing you back down with downtempo tracks and finish with a gentle sound bath.

-Are children allowed? Yes our events are kids-friendly and under 12s can come for free! We recommend ear protection as the music can get loud. Teens between 13-16 get half-price (£7.50 on the door).

-What is your refund policy? We don't offer any refunds, but we can transfer your ticket to a future event if you notify us up to 48 hours before the event.

THE CAFÉ

The Old Baths Café will be open from 9.30 am on the day. You are most welcomed to stay over after the event for a well-deserved post-dance lunch and make new friends.

PRICE

£10.00 Early Bird
£12.50 Regular
