WHAT IS MVMNT?

MVMNT is an Ecstatic Dance night in Elephant & Castle! It's not a club, but held in a dance studio. there is no bar, no one is selling you drinks and the main guideline is no talking on the dancefloor! You come to just dance!

Something magical, alchemical, transformational even, can happen on a dancefloor, where everyone who is there, is there to dance.

Come to dance, come to sweat, come to move, play, connect, sweat, stretch, sound, unwind, renew, release, contact dance, improvise, transform. Be true to yourself, while respecting others in the sacred space we create together.

Ecstatic Dance London creates a safe and respectful environment that embraces 'all ways'. Ecstatic dance supports the free expression of emotions, healing and transformational journeys through movement and music.

With a scorching soundtrack of Drum and bass to empower your journey. You're invited to come discover MVMNT for yourself!

DJ, FACILITATOR & SOUND SYSTEM

MVMNT sessions are DJed by James and facilitated by Seth.

James' passion for drum & bass was born growing up in London and was influenced by the music of the day. Pirate radio, Drum & Bass clubs, and the UK Bass Music scene.

His creativity was kindled with the potential of the finely detailed dynamics of high-quality speakers with which to deliver a digital sound experience in the best possible way. Once he lovingly built the sound system, he realised only certain music translates to his finely detailed speakers. That there is his mission, and deep intention.. to combine great music with high-quality speakers that deliver the detail and sonics that our very fine ears deserve!

And so, we are in for a real treat. As well James’ delectable taste in Drum & Bass, we will be offered the ecstatic experience and sonic delight of his sound system!

WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?

MUSIC - MOVEMENT - COMMUNITY!

Brought to you by: Ecstatic Dance London - We love to dance. We love music. We love to inspire, to connect, to heal and transform!

Ecstatic Dance is 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!

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.

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.

PRACTICE SPECIFICS: Warm-up: stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance. 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. Relaxation: Ecstatic Dance usually ends with a deep relaxation.

ECSTATIC DANCE GUIDELINES:

No late comers please. This is a shared journey from the beginning to the end and we aim to create a safe container for all dancers.

1. No talking during the dance (if you wish to talk, you are welcome to chat before/after dance outside the main dance space). When we dance without the chitchat, something alchemical can happen on the dancefloor. A unified field of Being emerges and we feel both wild and free, contained within ourselves And connected to something much, much greater than our individual selves.

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

3. No photos or videos, Mobile phones muted and out of sight

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

5. Move your body however you wish

6. No spectating. Stay connected to your own body, sensations, emotions, and feelings. Ecstatic Dance is about you and your relationship to the Dance. Dancers feel uncomfortable when being spectated at. Come prepared to Dance yourself free from inhibitions!

7. You can dance alone, or with as many partners as (you) like to join. (If you’d rather not dance with someone, thank them for the offer by placing your hands in prayer position at your heart – Namaste. Thank you, no thank you.)

8. This is not a pick up place. Please respect all dancers (especially women) and do not ask for anyone's contact details. If you wish to stay in touch with someone, give them your email instead of asking for their contact details. No means no.

"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
