Ecstatic Dance Nevada City @ Miners Foundry
Ecstatic Dance Nevada City will be presented Tuesdays from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. at the Miners Foundry, 325 Spring Street, Nevada City. Ecstatic Dance in its most basic definition is free-form movement /dance inspired by music, allowing bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching! This dance is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation. It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers. It’s about being present with your own energy and discovering your own dance within using this movement and energetic experience to release stuck patterns in your body, emotions, mind and spirit. Because Movement is Our Medicine No Shoes, No Booze, Just Dance

Ecstatic Dance Nevada City @ Miners Foundry
Ecstatic Dance Nevada City will be presented Tuesdays from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. at the Miners Foundry, 325 Spring Street, Nevada City. Ecstatic Dance in its most basic definition is free-form movement /dance inspired by music, allowing bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching! This dance is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation. It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers. It’s about being present with your own energy and discovering your own dance within using this movement and energetic experience to release stuck patterns in your body, emotions, mind and spirit. Because Movement is Our Medicine No Shoes, No Booze, Just Dance
