Ecstatic Dance Boston // Patrick Crowley // DJ Journey Weaver - Wed, Sept 19th, 2018 @7pm

"Dance is the fullest expression of our memories, thoughts, dreams, and feelings translated into movement through time and space with all of our being that exists in what is perceivable and beyond." ~ S. Monette

Welcome to Ecstatic Dance Boston!

Each month we'll be bringing you a multilayered dance experience... starting off with a movement class warmup featuring renowned instructors and facilitators, followed by DJ'd beats and music from dance floors around the world, and finally coming to a sound scape cool down integration with either live instruments, digital production, or vocalization.

Our featured guests will be a mix of local talent and familiar faces to international teachers and musicians. We'll start and finish each night with brief opening and closing circles to ground ourselves and gather in our present space of learning, expression, and connection.

"At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways." - Donna Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)

❉ Connect with inquiry before assumption, give yourself permission to be present and free of digital distractions, enjoy a natural high, and co-create the experience with consideration. ❉

Any concerns at any point can be addressed with an available Space Holder (listed at the entrance table)

◀︎ ECSTATIC DANCE BOSTON ▶︎

A monthly dance journey to take us into self exploration and creative expression. We honor "moving as the music inspires you" in a judgement-free space designed to inspire easeful presence and energetic flow. ED Boston is an opportunity to connect with your self, shake up your patterns, let free-form inspiration abound, and co-create a transformative experience.

Let carefully crafted musical journeys allow you to process emotions, exercise your body and mind, lift your spirits, and be welcomed by a vibrant local community as part of a global family in ecstatic expression. You can engage in the dance as you wish… through movement, meditation, expansion, observation, introspection, development, and connection.

You'll be amazed at what emerges when you let go and just dance!
