Sundays 

Ecstatic Dance – Off Site!

At Kern Park- east end, (down the hill, toward the river)

Sundays, 11:00 am-12:30 pm

     Dance is a way to reclaim our ecstatic experience of life. It gets us out of our heads and into our bodies and the present moment. 

     Ecstatic dance is un-choreographed, yet supported. We come together in conscious community to connect with ourselves, each other, and a greater life force. We dance in a safe environment, free of judgment, that allows us to access the fun and healing power of creative expression through movement. No previous dance experience is required. All ages and abilities welcome.

     We’ll begin with some basic guidelines, setting our individual intentions, then dance to a wide range of musical styles. As the session draws to a close, we’ll return to stillness, with an invitation to reflect on the experience. 

Donations to Pink House Studio- Suggested minimum at $5 /visit to be paid to Grace at day of attendance.
