Connect to yourself and to others through music and movement.

This beginners class is a perfect introduction to the fundamental principles of vinyasa yoga and guides you through yoga postures ste

Xstatic Dance is a type of free-form dancing inviting people to connect to themselves and to others through music and movement. It starts and finishes with a short opening and closing circle led by myself as a Ceremony Leader.  The format is as follows:

  • 10.00 Warm-up music

  • 10.30 Opening circle

  • 11.00 Ecstatic Dance – DOORS CLOSED 10:55 – PLEASE ARRIVE BY 10:30 am LATEST.

  • 12.30 Closing circle
     

There is no teacher as such, but we ask you to follow a few guidelines:

  1. No talking.  Xstatic Dance is a silent practice – you are welcome to communicate with others with your body language, but please keep words outside the space.
  2. No shoes. Barefoot dancing helps us ground ourselves by creating direct contact between our feet and the earth
  3. No drugs/alcohol. Xstatic Dance is a conscious practice embracing mindfulness.
  4. Phone-free zone. Encouraging safety & presence. Be here now.
  5. Respect of self and other. We ask participants to take responsibility for themselves, but also to watch out for others and be mindful of their personal space. Consider your actions & how they can affect the space.
  6. Stay dressed please; tops & bottoms on for men and women alike.

  • What to bring? A large water bottle (preferably reusable, we’ve put enough plastic on this planet) and a blanket to lie/sit on.

  • What to wear? Dress ready to move, in layers and according to the temperature. Dress however you wish, but stay dressed please; tops & bottoms on for men and women alike. Most dancers probably come dressed as they would for say a yoga or fitness class, or for a festival boogie. 🙂

  • Why do the doors close at 10:55am? what if I just want to drop in at any time? This is a practice (albeit a great fun one!).  We ask all dancers to be in the space ready to begin at 10:30am. We allow for those who have genuine reasons to be late, but really this must be taken as the cutoff time to promote safety and grounding in a held container as well as to allow the fullest & deepest experience for all.

  • What are your social distancing measures? The space is sanitised regularly. We also keep a large bottle of hand sanitiser at your disposal.

  • What kind of music? Xstatic Dance music is eclectic and not linked to any specific genre. We start with ambient, chilled out tunes then bring you on an xstatic journey with electronica, world music and ethnic beats before bringing you back down with downtempo tracks and finish with a gentle music.  We may also use Sound Healing equipments.

  • Are children allowed? Absolutely -we love kids!  Our dances are family-friendly and under 12s can come for free (subject to availability/event not selling out!). Please remember this is a practice and a moving meditation and so children must be supervised so that the space is not disrupted for others. We recommend bringing ear defenders/plugs for sensitive ears.

  • What is your refund policy? We don’t offer any refunds, but we can transfer your ticket to another person (please give details) or to a future date if you notify us up to 48 hours before the event.
