“Dance is a conversation between the body and soul”Charl Chaka
If that sentence speaks to you then Ecstatic Dance is for you!
It’s a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, connect with intention and expand together through the inspiration of a musical journey & dance.
Ecstatic Dance DXB
On Thursday 7th November, our very own Charl Chaka will be joined by Holistic fitness and wellness coach Jes Body to host Ecstatic Dance DXB on the beautiful inspiring wooden dance floor of Karma Yoga.
No phones, talking or drinking…
It’s all about self-expression, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with self and those around you. No booze, no shoes and no chit-chat on the dance floor will help keep the dance intentional.
Why Ecstatic Dance?
In the history of mankind, dance used to play an important role for cultures all around the world – it assisted people in solving conflicts, celebrating important events, honoring natural cycles, and it was an important part of religious rituals but mainly, it strengthened people’s feeling of belonging and helped them to move energy improve health and become closer to each other.
Inspired from their time at Burning Man, Charl and Jes will help you discover more about Ecstatic dance, which has been practiced throughout human history. Ecstatic dances are also known from religious traditions around the world.
Modern ecstatic dance was yet again revived by Gabrielle Roth in the 1970s and formalized in her 5Rhythms practice. It is now found in variants across the western world.
