11/11/22 ~ Save the Date! It’s been ONE YEAR since our small group of coordinators started hosting Ecstatic Dance events in the Midwest. And wow, what a year! This community is always evolving, moving, and grooving ~ and that’s what we are all about. I want to share a little bit about our values, and what you can expect at our events.
Lots of folk ask what Ecstatic Dance is. In a nutshell, it is free form movement that is intended to bring you closer to your self and your body, while simultaneously taking you to new levels of freedom. (Yes, it can feel intimidating/vulnerable/scary/etc, but you’re so much stronger than the confines of your mind!) No prior experience is necessary. We will guide you through the first steps and your body will naturally do the rest. There’s a few principles that we follow to maintain a safe, accepting atmosphere:
•This is a sober space ~ we respect your autonomy, but in this space there is NO alcohol/drug use (this includes mind altering substances). We have noticed that profound healing happens when you show up as your truest self. No crutches, no veils, no intoxicants, just you.
•No cell phone use ~ stay present, stay focused
•No talking on dance floor ~ take it to the sidelines. This allows the individual to go deeper within their personal dance experience
•MUST receive CLEAR consent to dance with another ~ we honor boundaries and have NO tolerance for disrespect
