Ecstatic Dance Corvallis is every week on Sunday mornings!
Come “sweat your prayers” with us! Ecstatic Dance is a journey of self-discovery through music & movement for exercise, stress release, emotional expression, and celebration of life. There are no moves to learn–just dance however it feels good to you. It’s freeform dance to a varied mix of organic and electronic beats in a warm, playful, inclusive community. The journey will open with flowing music to warm-up the body, steadily pick up in tempo & intensity to reach peaks of ecstasy, and gently land into meditative, heart-chakra stillness. (Note: There will be some powerful bass at moments through the premium sound system, but we won’t get into trance or rave music.)
