WHAT IS ECSTATIC/CONSCIOUS dance?
Of course, this is only a snippet of what ecstatic dance is.
Books have been written about its effects to the mind, body and soul.
It is also known to stimulate connection and the feeling of belonging in a non-verbal environment.
There is a big overlap with conscious dance. Being both an ecstatic dance facilitator and Open Floor conscious dance teacher, I see conscious dance as being more mindful and gentle on the body. More like yoga for dancers... Use your breath to let the energy flow, explore the music with your body and get creative. Awareness of body parts and breathing deepens the dance experience.
