A weekly dance event.
What is Ecstatic Dance?
It’s like a dance club… but without the shoes, phones, spectators, booze, smoke or drugs… it’s a guaranteed evening of REALLY good music that moves you in ways you didn’t know you could!
It’s a dance floor for 2 hours only… where you can be free to dance deep without inhibition or interruption. Simple, sensual and spectacular. Expect epic peaks & deep warm depths… finished off with a mini sound healing meditation.
Ecstatic Dance is fast becoming the new trend of “conscìous clubbing” around the world. CHCH Ecstatic Dance is one of hundreds of weekly Ecstatic Dance events around the world.
The dance is self guided, so all you have to do is follow the music or let the music guide you. MOVE how you feel and FEEL how you move.
7pm – enter the space. after a “warm-up” set to help you center and stretch, an opening welcome happens near 7:20pm. Near 8:45pm you melt to the floor for a relaxation with a sound healing experience, with live instruments – usually with a gong and sometimes with an additional didgeridoo or singing bowl. Before the space closes, we gather in a circle with the forum to share (or not) your experience and observations.
The dance floor is wooden and the sound system is huge and clear – with 2 massive subs that vibrate the floor.
The dance usually happens in Opawa Church Community Hall, but once a month changes to Mt Pleasant Community Hall – Please see FB event for location details.
