Just imagine we will be dancing with our local Toronto tribe plus we may be potentially connected to people from all over the globe.
We have a choice to open our hearts and learn how to dance through this pandemic, or close our minds and give in. And what we need to do right now is simply say YES TO LIFE!

We can make this into whatever we want it to be, it’s totally up to US! We invite you to virtually invite your friends, your family and your conscious communities! Grab your pay-what-you-can ticket, and we’ll send you an email with your Zoom Link so you can join the tribe online. Let’s show each other that nothing can hold us back from dance and the call of life.
See you on that virtual dance floor soon,
Julia & Ian

Here’s what people are saying about Ecstatic Dance Toronto …
⭐️ “Wow!, went for the first time tonight and got lost in a beautiful journey of dance and meditation! Definitely going back next week! Thank you Ecstatic Dance Toronto!” Dave
⭐️ “Toronto’s Ecstatic Dance is a magical place to let loose and dance deeply from the inside.” Lesya
⭐️ “I love this friendly, inclusive community. Always a joy and inspiration to dance with this tribe!” Anna Maria
⭐️ “It’s a powerful spiritual practice of understanding what you’re carrying/ storing in your body; figuring out what you are breaking through, what you’re yearning for; daring to be and be with yourself fully with love. That was the intention I set and with kindness I just let my body do whatever it needed to. By the end of it I felt in total union with my true self and gentle strength. In good company.” Tiff
⭐️ “Dancers are the athletes of God.” Martha Graham
You were born to move and dance in your own unique way!
? WHAT IS ECSTATIC DANCE ?
Ecstatic dance is freestyle dance – move however you wish – honour your body – dance with bare feet – no experience necessary – for all ages, genders, cultures & sizes – respect yourself and one another – dance in comfortable clothes to move in – have water to drink – alcohol-free and recreational drug-free – safe and sacred space – let the music take you on a journey
? Our Intention ?
We come as we are to sweat, dance and connect with ourselves and each other. You can dance as you wish, big or small, lying on the floor or jumping in the air. We create a safe space that is inspiring and uplifting. It is also nonverbal, barefoot, alcohol/drug-free to keep the experience intentional. This is a place where you can feel free to move and express whatever is alive in you and whatever comes up when you shake up your cells.
“Ecstatic Dance is the way we use to gather as a community and dance to rhythms and beats for the purpose of celebration, healing, transformation, prayer and everything and anything under the sun.”
