Can you believe it? Ecstatic Dance LA is turning five years old this June! We've been dancing, playing, stretching, praying, meditating, toning, healing, eating, and gathering community around the love of music and freeform dance consistently for five whole years, and we are just getting started! There's so much more development on the horizon for this beautiful community; but before we look too far ahead, we have to acknowledge and celebrate how far we've come!
We are so grateful to have this beautiful event to return to again and again. Come celebrate the beginning of our 5th year and revel in the goodness we've got cooking up.
Our co-founders Robin Parrish and Atasiea will co-facilitate the journey. Robin's Dj sets with live percussion always takes us so high and Atasiea will lead us through an adventurous warm up in his Yoga & Movement-Connection workshop. As producers and facilitators they've both grown leaps and bounds working together over the years. They are excited to collaborate on this special celebration in 2019.
Whether you're a regular or brand new to Ecstatic Dance this event is for you. It's an all ages, substance free, dance like nobodies watching goodness on a Sunday afternoon. Ecstatic Dance is always an opportunity for everyone to experience release and liberation through free-form movement. Come join this incredible dance tribe and world-wide movement as we rise up together and lay it all on the dance floor!
Ecstatic Dance LA weaves together world class DJs, immersive sound journeys and free-form movement.
