Ecstatic Dance Aspen

April 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC-6

Ready to try something completely out of the box?

Something that’ll get you seriously sweaty, empty out your aggro, pump your productivity, boost your joy, and leave you peacefully still?

Ecstatic Dance is free form, conscious movement. It is an invigorating mind-body practice of uncensored spontaneous dance for normal people just like you who love to dance. Just think of it as rockin’ out to your favorite tunes at home, only So. Much. More. Imagine recess – grownup style – as a group of friends drop inhibitions and let loose; sparking the room into a dynamic, interactive and anything goes playground that celebrates total freedom of expression.

The event will be held every 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month. The event can be attended in the future via the standard class drop-ins & packages of Aspen Shakti ( (Aspen locals in the service industry, please inquire about special pricing).

What to expect:

“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)

“Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, alongside a beautiful group of people who are there to connect and 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.



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

▸ This is a drug and alcohol free event

▸ No photos or videos; cellphones muted and out of sight

▸ Ecstatic Dance is a barefoot practice. If you need to wear shoes due to health reasons, please note dance-specific shoes are allowed, but only shoes that have not been worn on the street” (Ecstatic Dance LA).

▸Wiggles, acro-yoga, robot moves, meditative observers, Contact Improv, break dancing, animal sounds, stretching, savasana… Anything that doesn’t break the container rules or impinge on freedom of another is fair game!

“What to Bring:

1. Loose-fitting clothes that let you move your body and free yourself

2. Water and a water bottle. You can refill it at the venue.

3. A good attitude, open heart, & open mind” (Ecstatic Dance LA).
