A weekly ECSTATIC DANCE practice in the heart of Brazil, Serra Grande - Bahia. We gather in the legendary culture hot spot of the Afro-Brazilian culture, the Barracão D'Angola.
ECSTATIC DANCE is a free-form movement practice and celebration. Here we will be exploring body movements, world of music, rhythms of nature and mix of cultures. The only rules are: no shoes, no booze, no chit-chatting. We invite you to express yourself, explore your body and active your spirit. Connect with others, be the authentic you. From flow into staccato, from chaos into joy, you will find your stillness.
