About the event

Join us for the very first Ecstatic Dance Durham event! This is a unique opportunity to experience dance in a whole new way. We'll be gathering at The Brooklin Community Centre (old church, not library) at 45 Cassels Road East, Brooklin (Whitby), ON on Mon Jun 12 2023 at 7:00 PM.

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form movement practice that encourages self-expression and creativity through dance. There are no steps to learn, no right or wrong way to move, and no judgment. Just let yourself move to the music and feel the energy of the space.

By many, it is considered a spiritual experience. For some, it is a form of meditation, and for others it is simply a fun way to exercise and move their body.

Whatever your reason or call to ecstatic dance, it is an immersive experience that can lead to a profound sense of euphoria and cultivating a deeper understanding of one's own emotions.

As a form of movement medicine, ecstatic dance fosters a connection with the world through direct experience and embodiment.

By blending physical, artistic, spiritual, shamanic, and therapeutic techniques, this practice aims to inspire human creativity, promote healing and transformation, and nurture relationships with ourselves, others, the earth, and the spirit of life.

We can't wait to dance with you!
