WHAT TO EXPECT

Ecstatic Dance is a freeform movement space. Move however you wish. And you are always at choice about whether you want to dance solo or with other people.

You can expect a two-hour, DJ'd musical "journey". Music for the first 10-15 minutes is ambient and downtempo for you to arrive, warm up, and stretch as you like. The tempo begins to build gradually from there reaching a peak or catharsis in the second half of the dance. Afterwards the music comes down softening and slowing towards the end for relaxation and rest as we conclude the dance.
