Questions & Agreements
What is ecstatic dance?
Ecstatic Dance is a conscious movement practice that invites people to drop out of their minds and into their bodies to unwind and open to inner wisdom. Dance, Music and Cacao Medicine are the center point of these ceremonies catalyzing ecstatic states, where conscious mind limitations dissolve, opening the doors to the vast subconscious intelligence. It is an opportunity to connect deeply with self and others in fun ways words cannot express. A gracious experience to meet yourself as you are and open a space where you can see beyond who you think you are… It’s about you, freedom, joy and honesty.
This journey offers a space to develop self-awareness, be moved by deep emotions, expand your intuitive awareness and align your actions with your intentions.
Ecstatic Dance Agreements
To maintain ultimate freedom we agree to the following:
- No talking on the Dancefloor
- No cellphones, no pictures/video
- No street shoes on the Dancefloor (light, soft shoes are allowed)
- No showing up drunk or drugged
- No wearing of scent
- Respect the Space – Others’ Space and the Collective Space.
When Approaching others:
- Listen for a Yes (get eye contact first)
- Respect any No (when they are ignoring you)
- Respect the Solo Dancers’ Right to Their Space
- Hands in prayer at heart means: “I see you, and thank you for the dance (that just ended).”
You will be asked to leave if you do not follow these agreements.

For cacao ceremony
The Cacao Ceremony is scheduled once a month – check the schedule for details.
It is often suggested to not eat for 6 hours before consuming cacao for the ceremony. While this is definitely an invitation into a full experience, please be mindful of what your body needs.
Drink a lot of water during the day prior to the ceremony. Bring also a bottle of water with you to drink during the dance.
Cacao will dilate your blood vessels generating an expansive state in all your senses. Being well hydrated will ensure you have enough fluids in your expanded vascular system.
Free parking available onsite.
