Ecstatic Dance

“If being stuck & frozen is part of someone’s traumatized state,
then movement is the central resource for growth and development.”
– Oliver Schubbe

What is Ecstatic Dance (Integration Dance)?

Ecstatic Dancing is a conscious dance practice, inspiring you to free flow dance to the song of your own soul and the music that’s been carefully crafted by the Ecstatic Dance DJ, taking you through 6 waves.

It is about the experience of how it feels to dance from a place of living inside of your body compared to looking at yourself from an outside perspective and judging yourself, your moves, your dancing, your life.
