We’re ready to bring some juicy Central American vibes to this edition of Ecstatic Dance LA as we welcome - DJ Swahé to join us from Guatemala. We met him at the vibrant dance scene of San Marco, Lake Atitlan, and can’t wait for him to bring this full flavor to our LA dance floor. Swahé has led Ecstatic Dance and Ceremonial Cacao Dances at the Global Eclipse in Oregon, Envision Festival, Cosmic Convergence, and many more exotic locations around the world. Let’s get ready to go into the jungle for this one and connect with primal roots! To add to the occasion we also have renowned Ceremony Leader and conscious movement facilitator, Malaika Darville, who will guide our opening warmup based on her 5Elements Dance Activation™ process. Come join us and let’s dance freely and enjoy the benefits of this liberating and healing movement practice.

➤ Malaika Darville- In My Elements

Malaika is an Earth Goddess, Shamanic Medicine Women and founder of 5Elements Dance Activation™ and has taught African Dance for over 17 years. She has been sharing her gifts of bringing community together in joyful powerful celebrations for the past 30 years and is well known in the Ecstatic Dance Global circuit as Dj Ma.

This workshop is a full mind body and spirit activation where participants will learn that they are not separate from the Elements of the Earth and they will learn to love, respect, listen and deeply connect to their body as a Divine temple of intelligent wisdom and guidance. Using the power of the breath to guide us into presence as the body is allowed to move groove sweat and smile all over to awesome world beats so you can experience the real essence of Ecstatic trance dance. Release what no longer serves and surrender to the music to support a deeper connection to your self and your community.

➤ How it works:

We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.

➤What to expect:

Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, to connect, and to expand together.

Join us and enjoy a safe and inspiring space to dance without talking, drinking, and the nightclub vibe. This is about self-expression, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and those around you. No booze, no shoes and no chit-chat on the dance floor helps us keep it intentional. Amazing music helps us keep it all about Dance.

➤ Guidelines:

▸ No talking on the dance floor (there’s room to talk in the lounge space or quietly at the edge of the dance floor)

“At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways.” - Donna Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)
