RENEWAL - please read!
In this special Ecstatic Dance edition, the main focus is on renewing COMMUNITY! Therefore, we encourage you to bring a vegan* dish to be shared with your fellow humans POTLUCK STYLE after the dance, so that we get a chance to unite and munch over delicious food! This is of course optional - if you feel like skipping this part, just leave after the dance :)
*We try to be as inclusive as possible, and since not everyone chooses to consume animal products, we believe it's easier if everyone brings a vegan dish. Please omit any meat, dairy, eggs and honey. If you need inspiration, simply google "vegan recipes"!
Have you noticed that a lot of parties these days revolve around alcohol, drugs, Instagram stories or picking up dates. We did. And we did not like it. Our intention was to find an event which embodies different values. We truly wished to find a space where we could enjoy fine tunes, drop the social masks and just dance freely. We didn't feel like consuming alcohol or certain substances is a necessary part of this experience. We didn't feel like taking a bunch of snapchats adds to the vibe, but rather takes away from it. We craved for a conscious space, free of dogma and expectations. We had to travel the world to discover that those spaces DO exist and we truly loved the concept of Ecstatic Dance. Now we are bringing it to YOU. Because we know there might be someone out there, just like us, that would really appreciate the feeling of flow and ease, which is an essential part of ecstatic dance events around the globe.
Therefore, we invite you to enrich your evenings with good music and self-expression. Our goal is to create a space where you can feel safe enough to unfold your inner creative spark and connect to your body, mind and heart, through the rhythms and harmonies of music. It is about learning to allow yourself to be authentic and grounded in your own inner truth, while simultaneously being attuned and respecting the boundaries of the people around you. We encourage you to explore what connection means to you in any particular moment. Perhaps one moment you are focused on connecting to yourself and the next moment you are aiming towards connecting to someone else. There is no right or wrong. It is just an exploration, accompanied by music, movement and synchronicity! This is a chance to return to the freedom and ease we experienced as children. It is a celebration of our humanity.
Even though this is called an Ecstatic DANCE, you are absolutely free to enjoy the music and the experience in any way that feels good to you in the moment. This might look like you are dancing like nobody's watching or simply enjoying the moment in a meditative state. Perhaps you feel like doing contact improv with a stranger or a friend or maybe you want to do cartwheels and handstands in the middle of the dance floor. Everything is possible if you just follow your joy and a few guidelines, created to ensure your safety and the harmony of the event!
No alcohol or drugs.
No talking on the dance floor.
Respect each other's boundaries. No touching except if clear consent is given.
Byron Dane is a DJ, producer and musician with a wide array of sources for musical inspiration. He will take you on a personal journey through tribal and ethnic beats and atmospheric electronic soundscapes. Expect an assortment of deep soothing melodies and a variety of energetic pulsating rhythms.
►Facilitator (Authentic Element)
Anelia Mitova is the founder of "Authentic Element". She is based in Copenhagen, but works with people from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe. Her aim is to connect you to your truth! It is about gently puzzling together the different elements that comprise you as the gorgeous human being that you are. She is passionate about developing your health and well-being in a holistic way, through embracing your inner voice. We have been taught to suppress our intuition and rather follow someone else’s idea of what we are supposed to be, think, feel, eat, dress, watch… and it goes on. Her approach will not be about telling you what is the RIGHT or WRONG way, as she is well aware that there is no such thing – we are all different and there is inherent beauty in that! She yearns to connect you to your own inner guidance. You are the creator of your experience. Anelia wants to empower you to make choices which resonate with your AUTHENTIC TRUTH! She accomplishes that, by facilitating various techniques which focus on emotional integration, energy healing, shamanic ceremonies, ecstatic dancing, plant-based nutrition and others.
