In Ecstatic Dance, you move from the inside out, letting music be your intoxicant (substance & alcohol free). Just as soundwaves can move through walls, shake glasses and water, let them move through you. You can choose to dance, do yoga, contact improv, or whatever else moves you. You can also choose to not move at all and just be surrounded by good people and good music. Our dances are held in a consent-based, non-conversational, drug/alcohol free setting with mind blowing music. People may dance solo or together (with consent), as long as everyone respects the Space, One Another & Themselves.💜 Time:7:00 ED Doors open7:30- Opening circle, no one admitted after 7:30 so we can all create a safe space during opening circle.8:00- We Dance! 1.5 hr playlist!9:30- Closing circle10:00- Head home⭐️Arrive on time for opening circle so we can cover parameters for an accepting & non-judgmental space and welcome everyone warmly.Bring: Water, yoga mat if you’d like to do some stretching, earplugs if you need them.

You can also choose to not move at all. Listen to your body, and let it do what it needs.•No vices/devices- Leave your phones and other devices off and off the floor. You are taking the time to show up for yourself by attending, be as present as you possibly can be for yourself.•Do not come intoxicated. Let the music intoxicate you instead. Alcohol and drugs are not permitted. This includes vaping and marijuana. This allows for a safe and consent based atmosphere.•Non-conversational - The only expression on the dance floor is physical. If you must talk to someone, take it out into the lobby. This allows the dancers to be fully into the music and their own movements. Singing and expressing feelings during music is welcome.•Consent based - If you would like to dance with someone, make eye contact and give clear indication. If you do not want to dance with someone, or if you are ready to end dancing with partners, bow out by using Namaste hands. 🙏•No Photos or videos during dance unless facilitator gains informed consent from the group.• Please refrain from heavy perfumes or scents, as we will be in close proximity to one another.#motorcity#detroitecstaticdance #loringtherapy#doitforyouretreats#ecstaticdance#doitdetroit#downtowndetroit#movementdetroit#detroityoga#consciousclubbing #soberclubbing #detroit#thecollectiveattruenorth #visitdetroit #metrotimes #detroityogacommunity #rawdetroit #313yoga #5rhythms #detroitdance
