Online Ecstatic Organic Dance

Posted by

Dance is a powerful tool for healing, social change and transformation. Through dance, we connect ourselves to the moment, to our creativity, to our bodies, to our raw essence, to our tribal nature and thus: to mother earth. Dancing takes us home – from the inside out and the outside in.

During this ONLINE Ecstatic Organic Dance, DJ Caroline S’Jegers will be sharing sounds and silences, guiding you on a musical journey.

Registration through this link.

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form dance. Connected to ourselves and to the space around us, we give expression to what lives within us. After a few minutes of silence and a guided movement meditation, the music will support you as you dive deep within. The word organic refers to following your own organic flow – and from here, connecting to the larger web of which we are all part.

Even if you don’t call yourself a dancer, the only prerequisite to join is the willingness to listen, to move… and to let yourself be moved!

Here’s the practical information for our online dance:

* We use Zoom for our online event. Using zoom through your computer will give better sound than via your smartphone (make sure to download the zoom app!). If possible, connect your computer or phone to an external sound system. The Zoom platform works at its best through a good internet connection.
* In order to guarantee a supportive space for every participant, we ask not to take pictures or to shazam (you can always ask the DJ about music after the dance).
* Accommodate your home for movement. Wear comfortable clothes and serve yourself water or tea.
* Your presence is a present, so we ask of you to show up in time and to stay until the end (if you can). Please, stay in silence throughout the entire session.
* On Zoom, you have the choice to have your camera on or off. Seeing one another can help build connection, inspiration and safety during the dance.
* You can use the chat to ask us questions (for instance concerning technical support).
* After the dance, you will be given the option to unmute yourself and share about your experience with the group.

We look forward seeing and connecting to you – from the virtual dance floor in your own home!

Caroline’s sounds and words can be summed up in three words: touching, deep and soulful. She roots herself in ritual, uses music as poetry and listens to the spaces between the silences:

“Music moves and shapes me.
On the dance floor – just like in life –
the mystery unfolds…”
