We missed you, the dances, the live events… but we are back! With more events, indoor ánd outdoor.
Our indoor events take place at EdanZ, van Oldebarneveltlaan 6, Groningen.

You can buy your tickets for the indoor editions online. Tickets for the outdoor editions are paid in cash (€15). Registration is necessary though. Reserving your spot means an obligation to pay.
A FREEFORM DANCE MEDITATION
Ecstatic Dance is a unique dance experience. In a 2,5 h journey we dance and move freely, however you wish to move. Fast, slow, expressive, inward, together or alone. The DJ will take you on a journey through different worlds. There is no form, we just dance. Shoeless, Speechless and Booze’less! Together we create a space full of energy, where everyone feels safe to explore, express & enjoy to a natural state of ecstasy.
Ecstatic comes from a greek word meaning Beyond the Self. Ecstatic is not an emotion, it is a level of emotion. You can be ecstatic of joy, sadness, anger, love…. And eventually just ecstatic of being alive, of feeling whole. This is why we dance our emotional world, to go beyond them and find our natural state of being ecstatic.
The dance starts with a short introduction of our guidelines and some exercises to warm up the body, to connect with yourself and the others in the room. The 2 hour dance journey is lead by an experienced Ecstatic Dance DJ. The set will have several waves; moving from meditative sounds into strong rhythms and expressive music, just as the flows of life!
We end the journey together with a short closing ceremony.
