Intuit Ecstatic Dance
What is Ecstatic Dance?
Intuit Ecstatic Dance Movement is a local nonprofit that offers a safe community gathering space for people who love to dance. Ecstatic Dance empowers people to freely express themselves through movement. It does not matter what background you come from, what shape/size or what gender or non gender you are...YOU are welcome. The liberating atmosphere of the space creates a melting pot of freedom and acceptance. The fearlessness with which others move, gives newbies permission and courage to dance without inhibition. This form of dance has no specific steps, which allows the dancers to abandon themselves to the rhythm and move freely as the music takes them on a musical journey. The ability to surrender to your own unique movements can lead to a trance like state and a feeling of ecstasy.
Join us and enjoy a safe space to dance without talking, no drugs, no alcohol or "nightclub vibe." This is a place where
dance expands, spirit activates, boundaries melt, boredom ceases, creativity breaks out, hope happens, beauty flows, communities collaborate, ritual is reinvented, harmony resonates and the beat deepens, as an electronic tapestry of world rhythms weave us together as individuals within a greater family.
