Join a group of dancing souls to commune with the ocean. Let us remember the power the sea holds, and see it reflected within our own being.
This dance will be a beautiful way to connect and ground in with nature, feel the sand beneath your feet and watch the magic unfold as the sun sets.
Let us dance together with the intention of pure joy of getting to do so.
Join us for a night of release, freedom & connection.

About Ecstatic Dance:
Ceri, the facilitator will guide the experience. Through an opening ceremony, grounding, and will then guide you through the dance, with music that will take you on a deep journey.
The recipe is simple: No booze, no shoes, great music and an epic tribe come together to dance.
Don’t worry about steps or form or how you look, it’s not that kind of dance.
Our dance is one that throws the rule books away and instead encourages you to release to the music and let go of that pesky judging mind.
Transcending language, cultural and personal barriers, Ecstatic Dance enables millions to connect through dance and music all over the world.
Ecstatic Dance helps us break down the layers of self and come together as a tribe the way our ancestors have always done until very recently. By getting in touch with our roots and our bodies we are able to unlock the deep knowledge of the body and the heart and start to release control of the thinking mind.
When we step on the dance floor, we include our whole selves, even the frightened parts that want to hide. We dance through pain and sorrow. We dance with joy until our hard edges soften and our masks fall away.
We meet other courageous dancers, weaving unbreakable threads of connection. our friendships transcend the boundaries of time and space. and it all melts together–beat, movement, breath–into a swirling vortex we call community.
As the throbbing pulse of the dance floor matches our own heartbeat, we know, without a doubt, we are not alone.

Kind words for Ceri’s Ecstatic Dance:
“Ceri’s embodied ecstatic dances are amazing. She is holding a safe container where I’ve been able to drop a lot of my limiting beliefs regarding my body and dance. I’m feeling much more confident in my body and the way it moves. Each session is with a different theme that makes you dive deep into different facets of ourself and go to heal some of them. I love it so much and cannot recommend it highly enough”
