Ecstatic Dance LA ≫ Robin Parrish

  • Ecstatic Dance Los Angeles 2244 Westwood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90064 United States (map)

We continue our dancing journey together into February as we inch our way into 2019 with greater power and liberated expression. We love these experiences that bring us closer to ourselves and one another in such a freeing and ecstatic way.

On February 3rd we’re so excited to welcome back EDLA Co-Founder, Robin Parrish, to provide us with another epic musical adventure. His live percussion and musical selection always takes us so high! We are also delighted to have Atasiea return from his adventures in Guatemala bringing us wisdom from the Mayan culture and conscious movement practices in South America - weaving it all into his Movement-Connection workshop.

Ecstatic Dance is always an opportunity for everyone to experience release and freedom through free-form movement. Come join this incredible dance tribe and world-wide movement as we rise up together and lay it all on the dance floor!

➤ Ecstatic Dance LA weaves together world class DJs, immersive sound journeys and free-form movement. It's a substance-free, all ages community celebration where you can simply BE yourself and experience rejuvenation & inspiration through connection, dance & music!

➤ 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.

❃ Live DJs | Free-Form Movement | Workshops | Yoga | Sound Baths | Massage | High Vibe Food | Tribe ❃

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)
