Over 35 years ago, Gabrielle Roth pioneered what has now become the ecstatic dance culture as we know it. There are countless beautiful expressions of ecstatic / conscious dance within this interwoven and living tapestry. Some are closely affiliated with one another, while others are independently held. Each expression is beautiful unto itself, bringing unique gifts to those that participate in and create them.
Our ecstatic dance, Dance Elemental has been been evolving and growing since 2007 and we are but one dance in a wondrous sea of conscious / ecstatic dance expression. We love our dance family and welcome you to join us. We also honor and celebrate the diversity of ecstatic dance all around us. How fortunate we are to live in a time and a place where all of this is possible. How grateful we are to be surrounded by such a vibrant and joyful community.
