Guidelines

The dance floor is a non-verbal space

Join together to create a safe and sacred space for movement. Eliminating talking on the dance floor allows participants to move out of their heads and into their bodies, hearts, and souls. Leave behind the words and worries of the day and connect with spirit and one another in new ways.

The dance floor is a place of respect and safety

Ecstatic Dance has been created as a safe container, whether dancing alone or with others. Ecstatic Dance is contact-friendly, but keep in mind that people have different levels of comfort when it comes to being approached and touched. Please be mindful and make sure the way you approach other dancers is resonant with them. If somebody offers you a shared dance and you are not interested, simply give them a bow with hands at your heart to say, “no thank you”.

Please keep the dance floor free from:

Talking, street shoes, photos, videos, and scents.
