Ecstatic Dance Santa Cruz is a unique expression of a global movement Ecstatic Dance is a DJ’d, free-form dance/movement meditation experience. This can be a practice of surrendering to the moment and to our body’s wisdom. It is an opportunity for allowing, feeling, and expressing all the emotional qualities and textures that make up this human experience; and for exploring what artistry moves through us/as us in this expression.
