Ecstatic Dance is a free-dance form, where we play together and feel free to move however we want, together or alone. You can choose to get into trance or let yourselft go with someone into the music.
We try to create a relaxed atmosphere where you can be yourself; show your true self in the dance and where you can enjoy your own movements and each other.
Therefore we have some guidelines to help create this environment, like: – not speaking out loud, only with our bodies, to be able to enjoy the music without disturbance. – We dance barefoot to be able to get grounded and to connect ourselves with the earth. – We don’t use drugs or alcohol, to be in the here and now.
We dance on a great variety of music and rhitms, we can go from classical music, to hip-hop, worldly music, african percussion, to disco, melodic techno, electronic music. It can be anything, as long as it is nice to dance on and it feels good.
With the dancing we serve thee and water, as much as you need.
The nice thing of Ecstatic Dance is that it attracks a broad variety of people, from young to old, just dancing and enjoying creating new dance moves.
