Start every week on your dancing feet at Kalani’s Ecstatic Dance. Explore the rhythms of life however you like with movement and dance. The sacred heart of our Big Island dance experience.
Join the Puna dance ‘ohana as we come together to connect in an inspirational, expansive, open, generative, and inclusive way. Ecstatic Dance is the seed of a special community experience that will grow to be even more beautiful as it once again takes root and flourishes.
Ecstatic Dance is a journey devoted to self-expression, community building & empowerment. A safe place to move your body, heart, and soul. There are no expectations on how to dance. Our beautiful wooden dance floor is an open canvas for the art of movement. All ages and backgrounds are welcome.
Headliner — AVANI
Avani, also known as Tyler Blank, was instrumental in bringing our Ecstatic Dance movement from the Big Island to the Bay Area of California. As founder of Ecstatic Dance Oakland, SF, Fairfax, and the EcstaticDance.Org NonProfit Community — Avani’s passion for Ecstatic Dance has made the world a better place. His music style can be called eclectic, eccentric, sometimes even ecstatic. He plays every emotion, tempo, and genre possible to produce a journey of sound for the embodied spirit to experience itself. Avani appreciates both the sacred, and the profane… the spiritual and the sexual. Come take a ride, through the chakras, around the globe, from the ancient past through the distant future, arriving and enjoying, the right here and now. www.Avani.Dance
