Ecstatic Dance Tribe Vorarlberg
Ecstatic Dance is a worldwide movement offering open, conscious, intentional and freestyle dance: conscious clubbing. This is a drug free zone (yes, that includes alcohol), with a DJ set or playlist usually guiding us through 2-3 hours of music to dance yourSelf into ecstasy. Hannah is a co-founder and facilitator of Ecstatic Dance Tribe Vorarlberg, with our DJ skills coming from Amaruda (Andreas).
We meet to create a "sacred space" for and through dancing.
- No shoes - barefoot or dance socks only.
- Wear comfortable clothing.
- No alcohol or other drugs.
- No talking on the dance floor:
We only talk on the dance floor when absolutely necessary. This way we can let ourselves dive into and completely immerse ourselves in the dance and the music, coming out of our thinking heads and monkey mind into our heart and body.
- Respect yourself and others on the dance floor:
Ecstatic Dance has been created as a safe space for all, whether we’re dancing alone or with others. Ecstatic Dance is contact-friendly, but please bear in mind that we all have different comfort zones when it comes to being approached and touched. Please be mindful and ensure that the way you approach other dancers is resonant with them. If somebody offers you a shared or contact dance and you are not interested, simply give them a bow with hands at your heart to say, “no thank you”.
It’s a moving meditation, a therapy, a prayer, a connection to our higher Self. Dancing is a form of therapy and can help us connect to ourselves, as well as to others.
Ecstatic Dance sessions are often opened with a singing circle or cacao ceremony, to delicately draw us deep inside as well as uniting our energy as a group before we're invited to let loose and fly into freedom on the dance floor.
