Come “sweat your prayers” with us! Please join us for Ecstatic Dance Boulder once a month, every second Tuesday! We are blessed to return to the StarHouse!
Ecstatic Dance is a journey of self-discovery through music & movement for exercise, stress release, emotional expression, and celebration of life. There are no moves to learn–just dance however it feels good to you. It’s freeform dance to a varied mix of organic and electronic beats in a warm, playful, inclusive community. No previous experience necessary.
We will provide a special sound healing in addition to the dance.
The price for our community dance is $2o plus $5 to support the StarHouse Sustainability Fund click link for more information.
This event sells out and pre-registration is important. If we have walk-in tickets available they will be given on a first come first served basis. We do not offer refunds or transfers to other classes. If you would like to transfer your ticket to another dancer, you must organize that yourself.
Please carpool so we can preserve the pristine nature!

Please read our Ecstatic Dance Guidelines here:
http://www.ecstaticdanceboulder.comFeel free to arrive or leave at any time, but we believe the journey is best experienced as a whole: please try to arrive before 7:30pm. The music will be a mix of electronic and organic beats from around the globe—with a focus on the cutting edge of music production—including some novel remixes of beloved classics. The journey will open with flowing music to warm-up the body, steadily pick up in tempo & intensity to reach peaks of ecstasy, and gently land into meditative, heart-chakra stillness. (Note: There will be some powerful bass at moments, but we don’t get into trance or rave music.)
During the journey we play a very wide variety of music across different genres. If there’s a song you don’t prefer or that doesn’t seem danceable at first, we invite you to be curious and try to discover it in your body. Or use it as an opportunity to work with the judgements that arise. Or hold witness for how others are feeling the music. Or take a break to visit our altar or get some water. Just know that the music keeps changing, so something different is coming soon.
Resident DJ Simona settled in Boulder with the intention of helping develop a local Ecstatic Dance community. Simona is a DJ in service of conscious movement, drawing her own longtime practices of Ecstatic Dance and 5 Rhythms for inspiration. She’s known for her seamless journeys of eclectic and wide-ranging music. Simona has DJ’d for 100+ dances since 2011. In recent years, she’s been leading sound healing cacao ceremonies in Boulder.
With love and blessings,
