Ecstatic dance


Dancing is my spiritual practice; my prayer. It's my playground and my therapy. The dance floor is my teacher.

When I'm dancing, I feel like I'm letting go of the stories of the past and the desires of the future; my body is taken on a journey through the music. I start to feel whole again as I sink deeper into my breathing and listen to the beat of my heart, which syncs with the beat of the music, echoing the beat of the universe. I feel welcomed. 🇧🇷

~ Donna Carroll, founder of Ecstatic Dance Oakland

𝑬𝒄𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒄 𝑫𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒆 is a conscious party to dance barefoot, however you want, free of judgment. A space of joy where everyone can express their emotions and their Being, as they wish. An experience of free expression of the body and essence as a form of liberation (no alcohol, cell phones and no small talk)!




Ecstatic Dance is about getting out of your head and into your body.

It's not about the look of the movement.

It's about how you feel.

In an Ecstatic Dance, you'll see a wide variety of dances, of all types - from flowing tai chi style movements, to jumping up and down, break dancing, simply walking or sitting in meditation.

You are encouraged to move freely - however you wish.

There's nothing you need to know, you just need to be and let the expression come from within you!"

Neste ano de 2024 estaremos realizando encontros mensais no Rio de Janeiro com dança livre e Ecstatic Dance, meditações tântricas, práticas de consciência corporal e construção de uma comunidade pulsante interessada no despertar.
