“When I dance... at the beginning there is only the music and myself. After some time there is only identification with the Dance and I feel an explosion of energy all along my body and in my heart" ~Dhyani

Anandamayi ("Bliss-Permeated") dance is a deeply-immersive, safe discipline for dancers of all gender identities. It combines Belly Dance movement, Classical Indian Temple Dance devotional philosophies, and Kalidasi’s unique rituals of healing and empowerment. The outcome is learning to move through every arena of life with intention, focus, compassion, and power. 

Join us at the start of the summer season to dive into a expressive experience of transformative movement in the dance, in heart hearts, andin our lives within community and connection!

Welcome to Ecstatic Dance Boston! 

Each month we'll be bringing you a multilayered dance experience... starting off with a movement class warmup featuring renowned instructors and facilitators, followed by DJ'd beats and music from dance floors around the world, and finally coming to a sound scape cool down integration with either live instruments, digital production, or vocalization.

"At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways." - Donna Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)

❉ Connect with inquiry before assumption, give yourself permission to be present and free of digital distractions, enjoy a natural high, and co-create the experience with consideration. ❉

Any concerns at any point can be addressed with an available Space Holder (listed at the entrance table)


A monthly dance journey to take us into self exploration and creative expression. We honor "moving as the music inspires you" in a judgement-free space designed to inspire easeful presence and energetic flow. ED Boston is an opportunity to connect with your self, shake up your patterns, let free-form inspiration abound, and co-create a transformative experience.

Let carefully crafted musical journeys allow you to process emotions, exercise your body and mind, lift your spirits, and be welcomed by a vibrant local community as part of a global family in ecstatic expression. You can engage in the dance as you wish… through movement, meditation, expansion, observation, introspection, development, and connection.

You'll be amazed at what emerges when you let go and just dance!
