Best way to describe it: 

"Many names for the dance...ONE mystical experience"

The Name of the Dance...

Conscious/Ecstatic dance is a well-known spiritual practice for so many around the world. There are many names, levels and modalities to experience this form of dance: ecstatic dance, conscious movement, intuitive movement, sacred dance, somatic dance, trance dance, spiritual dance, worship dance, etc. Some are social and interactive, others are introspective and individual.


I like to call my offerings Zen Dance for the beginner level and Trance Dance for the deeper, advanced level. 


There is only one way to describe the dance: it is a spiritual, healing and transforming experience of movement meditation where you dance to your heart's content instead of being still. Just like yoga or meditation, you experience the same trance states but instead of sitting still or holding positions, you move and dance into the trance. You quiet your mind, release stress and emotions and achieve the same healing benefits and wellbeing. It is all about your connection within.

“I Praise the dance, for it frees people from the heaviness of matter and binds the isolated to community.

Dance is a transformation of space, of time and of people who are in constant danger of becoming all brain, will or feeling.”

~ St. Augustine
