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. Listen to a sample journey HERE.

It is VERY important to me that dances feel reasonably safe and welcoming for ALL people…especially those who’ve been marginalized (LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, body type, neurodiverse, seniors). I ask everyone who comes to help me in making it so. I also ask for the willingness of traditionally marginalized people to come and dance with us as we improve and grow in this way!
