Roots Revival | BIPOC Ecstatic Dance – Friday, August 23 at 7-9 PM


Embrace the Rhythms of Your Roots

This gathering is a heartfelt invitation for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color in the DFW area to celebrate the wisdom and innate need for expression within your bodies, all within a nurturing and secure space. Together, let’s co-create a sanctuary and playground on the dance floor!

So what is this Ecstatic Dance, you ask? Ecstatic Dance is a liberating and transformative movement practice that invites individuals to move + express freely within a welcoming and supportive environment. The dance session lasts for 90 minutes, starting with a 30-minute warm-up, an opening circle, followed by a 60-minute dance wave. A dance wave begins gently, builds to an energetic peak, and then gradually returns to stillness. Unlike traditional dance settings, there are no set choreographies or structured movements. Instead, participants are encouraged to move intuitively in a way that feels natural to them. There is space for people who need to rest, cry, or shake off all the energy within.
