WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE?

ED is a type of free-form dancing inviting people to connect to themselves and to others through music and movement. It takes places over a 2-hour live DJ set and starts and finishes with a short opening and closing circle led by a Ceremony Leader. There are no teacher or rules, but we ask you to follow a few guidelines:

1. No talking. ED is a silent practice -you are welcome to communicate with others with your body language, but please keep words outside the space.

2. Shoes are optional. Barefoot dancing helps us ground ourselves by creating direct contact between our feet and the earth

3. No drugs/alcohol. ED is a conscious practice embracing mindfulness.

4. Phone-free zone. Please keep your phones off/airplane mode as it interferes with our silent disco transmitter.

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.

Q&A

What are your social distancing and virus prevention measures? Upon arrival, you will be provided with an antibacterial wet wipe to clean your headset. We keep a large bottle of hand sanitiser at your disposal. We ask all dancers to respect the 1m social distancing rule and not to gather in groups of more than 6.

What is cacao? What is a cacao ceremony? Cacao is the raw form of chocolate, detoxifying and sacred; it has been used by the tribes of Central and South America for thousands of years in ceremony and ritual. It has an energising and heart opening effect and works like a dream with ecstatic dance. Maya (who learnt direct from the source in Guatemala) will prepare a delicious hot chocolate type drink like none you have ever experienced, with special spices and medicinal (all legal) mushroom types, such as Lions Maine, that will warm your body and awaken the dancer within! We will drink together before we get dancing. The combination of the cacao and the dance practice can truly assist a powerful and transformational journey. Any cacao questions please contact Maya direct: medicinal.maya@gmail.com

What to bring? A large water bottle (preferably reusable, we've put enough plastic on this planet).

What to wear? Dress in layers and according to weather. We recommend packing a lightweight rain jacket as we all know British weather is very temperamental! Of course it also gets much colder after sundown!

What if it rains? In case of rain, we have the use of a covered area very close by on the other side of the green 🙂

What kind of music? ED music is eclectic and not linked to any specific genre. We start with ambient, chillout tunes then bring you on an ecstatic journey with electronica, EDM, world music and ethnic beats before bringing you back down with downtempo tracks and finish with a gentle sound bath

.

Are children allowed? Absolutely - we love kids! Our dances are family-friendly and under 12s can come for free (subject to headset availability and not including cacao, this can be purchased for £4 per serving).

What is your refund policy? We don't offer any refunds, but we can transfer your ticket to a future date if you notify us up to 48 hours before the event. Tickets from lower priced events can only be transferred for tickets without cacao (which can then be purchased on the door).
