What is Ecstatic Dancing/Integration Dancing?
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.
The dance journey is designed to:
The range of music played by an Ecstatic Dance DJ is quite wide ranging from 85 beats per minute to 145 bpm, down to 75 bpm again during a whole dance set. Also the different songs include music from different genres like Base, House, Tribal, Funk, Instrumental, Ethnic Music, Ancestral, Ambient, World Music, Medicine Music, Shamanic Sounds, Nature Sounds etc…AND last but not least, a good Ecstatic Dance DJ creates the below dance journey across 6 waves:
This conscious dance practice is not about “getting anywhere” but instead about “feeling and experiencing” yourself in the dance.
Your online dancefloor
to support your self-expression & self-realisation.
Dance to the rhythm of your soul!
How did Ecstatic Dancing get born?
I have attended many Ecstatic Dance & 5 Rhythm Dance classes in London and even hosted my own Dancewalking Meet Up group to unite dancers to free style dance publicly through parts of London together.
For many years I wanted to create my own Conscious dance practice covering various topics that come up during self realisation and integrate them during the dance.
In 2020 I AM Dancing on Patreon got born where I started to create dance videos frequently to allow dancers all over the world to integrate various topics during the dance, offering a guided facilitation during the dance. In 2021 I attended an Ecstatic Dance DJ Training course with the Wakamaia School of Sacred Fun and certified as DJ and Facilitator of Ecstatic Dance events, adding even more exciting elements like breath work, toning and cool music mixes & sound effects to my dance journeys.
What are the benefits of dancing?
Thank you SO MUCH! I’d love to do another session. I enjoyed it SO much. And I really appreciate the work that went into selecting the music so that it was at the right tempo for the whole session.
It felt perfect. Seriously, well done! This is something I can see others enjoying. Love you, xxx
P.S. And love what you’ve shared about magic. IT’S SO TRUE! And it’s already helped me with my painting. Isn’t it interesting, how loosening up with dance can help you loosen up in other areas of your life and with creativity generally? And… I woke up without a migraine today!
