About The Event
Sunday, May 28th, Marc Statz will be hosting a big ecstatic dance where with the goal to gather 100 people together to spread the dance movement further into the world, exposing more people to the incredible power of dancing in an exciting and growing community. Our last events have gotten 60+ people! Young, old, short, tall, normal, weird, everyone is welcomed and every dance move encouraged.
**What is ecstatic dance?**
Ecstatic dance is a form of sober free-dance where we let go of our mind to get more into our body. We move to the rhythm and move freely to the music with no judgements of ourselves or of the others. The dance can be described as a form of movement meditation. You are welcome to feel and experience the full spectrum of human emotion and to express it on the dance floor. Ecstatic dance has been practiced throughout human history as a ceremonial way to commune in celebration.

We are trying a flexible pricing model for these events to give opportunity to those who feel called to contribute more to the growth of these events while also leaving room for anyone to join. Finances are not be prohibitive to anyone, as the goal is to create events where dance is accessible to all. With that said, creating these kinds of events are time consuming, and cost money to rent the space and support the team and the artists. The exchange goes back into the support, creation and expansion of more awesome events.
