«Dancing is not just a movement. When a movement becomes ecstatic then it is dance. When the movement is so total that there is no ego, then it is a dance. When you dance, you become a whirlwind and by and by, you are completely lost in your dancing, it happens — something breaks down inside you, the barriers are lost — you become one unity. A great orgasm spreads all over your being. You are in tune with existence in those moments.» ~OSHO
Join us on Jan 11th at 7pm for our debut of our Dance Temple at Inhale Miami. As deepen in our path of Awakening we'll continue focusing on Presence through Movement, Authenticity, Intimacy & Connection within ourselves and our heartful & soulful community of freestyle barefoot Ecstatic dancers, yogis, healers and tantricas.
Calling all dancers, Love & Light warriors, those who experience dance as a vehicle of self-transformation, a practice to cleanse and free our beings, a vehicle for healing and and Self-Realization. All those who dare to push their edges of self-expression beyond the norms of the mind and within the container of our loving community of dancers, healers, yogis, meditators, leaders, teachers, movers & shakers.
Ecstatic Dance Miami is held as a Sacred Tantric Playground, a Dance Temple of Consciousness for Embodiment. When you enter our Dance Temple we encourage a deep silence within, a deep receptivity, leaving all worldly chit chats and judgements behind, bringing your attention within, listening, awakening your senses to your surroundings and others. We encourage eye contact and heartfelt expressions with others and to find your Tribal Self alive, getting down on the dance floor, letting yourself go. We embrace your emotions to dance your prayers and become One with Spirit/God/Source, releasing, expressing, diving deep into ourselves and others, moving freely while nurturing your senses.
Ecstatic Dance is a journey with a beginning, climax & end so come early to have a full experience.
*7-7:30pm Embodiment Class: For our fundamentals of Ecstatic Dance Jesicca Aloha
will be guiding us into a 30 min yoga flow designed to remind us of our innate ability to enjoy freedom of movement and help us connect with our body's natural wisdom. This is a Soulful Fusion incorporating, Orgasmic Breath and Primal Animal Movements to get us activated to fully let go and experience the full spectrum of self expression.
Jesicca Aloha is a multi-dimensional, outrageous, unique and talented being. Her passion for dance, animals and human movement has lead her exploring and developing all the living arts she is currently sharing. Over the past 15 years she has learned many styles of yoga, dance and bodywork.
She is a 500 RYT with an extensive repertoire in healing and movement arts.
*7:30-8pm: Continuing with our Fundamentals of Ecstatic Dance class at 7:30pm Alejandro Medin will lead us into Empathic Contact Improv followed by Mark Golden who will teach us the basics of Contact Improv.
CI dancers explore physics in motion and cultivate an awareness of the effects of touch and gravity as they share points of contact with others. In CI there is no designated leader or follower or imposed direction. Any dancer may provide “invitations” for shared movement. As partners move, so do their shared points of contact. Dancers are encouraged to organically explore and create their own individual experience. Certain principles help dancers to move safely at different speeds, roll, fall, slide, rotate, spiral, support others, give weight, lift, be lifted, and move into their back space. CI is a giant “playground” in which we expand our abilities to dance spontaneously, share space with others harmoniously, communicate via touch intuitively, realize our primal somatic consciousness, and open our awareness to a universe of infinite possibilities.
Mark Golden is a dedicated somatic mover, dancer, and martial artist. He relishes both traditional and improvisational forms of dance and enthusiastically shares his passion for movement with others.
Alejandro Medin is a wholisting therapist and the director and resident DJ @ EDance Miami.
