Thank you for your interest in Ecstatic Dance SLC.
After 4 years of dancing twice a month, we are in transition -- waiting to be shown 'what's next' for our moving community.
We will let you know, as soon as we do, where and when you can find us.
We look forward to meeting you on the dancefloor once again.

expanding and helping one another have the courage to express our true nature,
to be our true Selves.” ~Donna Carroll

Ecstatic Dance

Dance the way your body wants to, without choreography or judgment! Get out of your head and into your body, discovering the innate body wisdom you possess. Ecstatic dance is an authentic, spontaneous, expressive, meditative movement practice inspired by various people, cultures and practices (Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms™, Shaking Medicine, Vinn Marti’s Soul Motion™ and many indigenous cultures).

Go beyond the limits of your habitual movement patterns and explore your unique inner dance. No experience needed, just a willingness to move and be moved! It's about putting your soul in motion and giving yourself permission to dance without holding back. If you love to dance, this is for you!

We dance barefoot (or with appropriate soft-soled shoes) at our own pace for an hour and a half. There is no choreography or instruction, but a "focus" and other suggestions may be offered by the facilitator/DJ to help deepen your experience. You're free to dance by yourself, with another, or join a spontaneous group expression. The music gradually builds to a high energy level and then winds back down to a meditative, relaxing finish. Be prepared to sweat!

We become a community or "tribe" that looks forward to dancing together, and we look forward to welcoming you!
