About The Event

We provide a held, safe space that empowers everyone to express themselves freely and to build the courage to dance without inhibitions. This space is for your own free-form movement supported by a powerful sound scape.

The dance connects people to themselves and each other without the distraction of speech, alcohol and other substances.

It is a wonderful way of exercising without any set steps or instructions. There are no steps to learn, only your natural rhythm waiting to be discovered!

You are free to dance alone and there is no pressure to connect with anyone else, just be yourself and honour what you need in the moment.

Come and follow the music, a universal language that brings people together and creates a beautiful community.

The music

We are passionate about music and we carefully select tracks for our events so that we can deliver an eclectic mix of genres for you. From tribal to electronic and everything in between we aim to assist a natural flow peaking and resting to mirror the rhythm and energy of life. The music becomes the facilitator during the wild ecstatic dance ending with moments of stillness into silence where we can rest and breathe together.
