WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?
Ecstatic dance, a vibrant form of expression rooted in our ancestral heritage and cultural diversity, celebrates the freedom of movement in its purest form, transcending traditional dance norms of routines and steps.
This practice offers a liberating space for anyone to step onto the dance floor and immerse themselves in a world of self-expression, helping to release limitations and embrace comfort in both body and personality.
As participants engage in ecstatic dance, they often find their bodies becoming more relaxed and expressive, moving rhythmically to the eclectic beats and melodies curated by skilled DJs who masterfully blend electronic and world-music genres.
