Weekly indoor dancing is back!
So excited to begin dancing indoors with you again! I'll continue offering 3 outdoor dances still which I love doing, but...
WOW am I ready to move indoors with a smooth, clean wooden floor and the sweet holding space of four walls.
Oh did I mention full subs for the BASS that bumps and caresses our bodies??!! Yeah been missing that, too ;-)
$15 cash at the door
(old circle passes will be honored)
All park dances are on!
(Three times weekly!)

at Ocean View Park in SC
Ocean View Park is an amazing place for an Ecstatic Dance outside overlooking the beautiful Monterey Bay. With three dances offered each week you've got plenty of opportunity to move, express, and connect with your innermost wisdom and resource. Come join us any Monday, Thursday, or Saturday afternoon.
Outdoor dist-dances are compliant with shelter in place variances for outdoor group exercise and will be offered at least through the summer and fall...weather permitting! If it's raining, we won't dance. I'll post a cancellation notice right here by noon on the day of the scheduled dance so you'll know for sure. Otherwise you can assume the dance is happening!
** $10 per headset (cash only, please). All outdoor dist-dances using “Silent Disco” headphones that I provide and 10’ physical distancing. Compliant with SCC variances for outdoor group exercise.

expressed, and more embodied, that's what I'm all about."
Summer is here!
Our first annual Ecstatic Dance Summer Solstice Campout just wrapped up and it was a phenomenal success in about every way imaginable. Over 100 people came to blend fun, growth, play, transformation, sacred ceremony, and a ton of dance together for an unforgettable experience. My heart and soul are deeply satisfied. Next year's EDSSC is already being planned. And of course our shorter Fall Equinox campout is only 3 months away!
As we move from Spring into Summer, I am enjoying all the warmth and bright sunshine as we continue to dance outdoors at Ocean View Park three times a week. Indoor dances starting soon on Wednesdays from 8-10pm and Sundays from 11a-1pm btw ;-)
I am also deeply engaged in bringing the world's first Ecstatic Dance Center to life. There are many great developments as we close in on our deadline to raise funds. Can you (or someone you know) invest and help me make this a reality? Message me through this website if you are able to loan $10K to $1M. Basic terms are a 5 year note secured against the property with 6% interest paid annually.
And finally, we are expecting our second child in the first week of October. Ya Mei has officially entered her third trimester! I am happy to report that she is healthy and well-resourced. Not much in life is more gratifying and awe-inspiring than supporting her at this time in whatever way I can.
I live in Santa Cruz, California and am grateful every day for the gift of life. I am passionate about creative expression and I am devoted to building communities that balance personal freedom with care for the whole. My love of freeform conscious dance nourishes me daily and inspires me to share the gift of music, dance, and conscious touch wherever it is wanted or needed. My community, family, friends, and loved ones provide the perfect blend of belonging and freedom. I know my purpose and how I am needed. I know that those who care about me want only one thing from me...to give them my authentic self.
