Gateway to Ecstatic Dance: Shilo Farm

  • Shilo Farm 88 Beech Road Eliot, ME, 03903 United States (map)

Somewhere in the bones of our bones, there is dance.

Not choreography — there are no steps to learn, and there is definitely no way to do it wrong. This dance is the free expression of everything swirling within you, and Ecstatic Dance is the dance floor to set it all free.

We dance our joy, our freedom, our longing, our wildness.

We dance our sadness, our frustration, our anger, our pain.

In Ecstatic Dance, community is built. Rituals are discovered. Self-judgements are released. Creativity is birthed. The body moves and breathes and sweats and stomps and twirls and pulses.

And it is all welcome.

The flow of the night:

7-7:30: Opening and Movement Warmup

7:30-9: DJ set by Ankati, free dance & high vibe elixirs by Amylyn

There are four guidelines.

  1. Consent is the law of the land. Every dancer is welcome to their space; if you want to dance with, hug, or otherwise share contact with someone, get permission first.

  2. No talking on the dance floor; please speak in quiet voices in the Chill Space only, and let the music and movement guide the dance!

  3. No phones on the dance floor, including videos or photos of the dancers. Take this time to engage directly with the world and set your screen aside!

  4. This is a safe, substance-free dance space, and we hold a high value on clarity of presence: please do not arrive intoxicated or partake in substances other than our High Vibe Elixirs during the dance. We get naturally ecstatic on the movement, not on alcohol or drugs.
