Description

For this week's Dance Lab, we will be joined by Axé for an journey into "Afro-Ecstacy". "World traveling artist, Axé, has curated a special evening of organic, self-loving, embodied divine booty shaking. Beginning with intention and a group warm up, we will explore dances of the African Diaspora fused with ecstatic dance and original Sol Vida choreography. Release your mind, have fun and get free in your body."

This will be followed by an Ecstatic Dance DJ set, ending with a closing sound meditation. Space is limited, so we suggest getting your tickets in advance.— New to Ecstatic Dance? Here's a little bit about what it is:Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering that encourages freedom and expression through dance. Join us and experience 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:1. No talking on the dance floor (plenty of room to talk off-floor)2. Drug-Free, Smoke-Free, Alcohol-Free environment3.
