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.
This Week’s Headliner — MOONFIRE
Dance is a journey. It’s up to you to determine the destination. Music is the vehicle. An expression of infinite variation that can touch any point in time and space. And all the movers and shakers on the Big Island know to be prepared for new worlds to explore when Moonfire is at the helm of the ship. On warm currents of organic sounds, Moonfire transports dancers across a multi-textured soundscape layered with tribal beats and rhythmic world fusion.
Moonfire nurtures the senses with rhythms inspired by the divine feminine, with roots in spiritually lifting instrumentals, drumming, and chanting. Curvaceous melodies with big bass drops that celebrate both the ceremony and raw impulses of dance.
45 Minute Warm-Up — IO LELE
Io Lele (Soaring Hawk in Hawaiian) is a DJ/producer alias of 3 year local guy, Spiro Theofilatos. Every journey with Io is different, vibe appropriate and seamlessly mixed. Sunday morning will begin with a Hawaiian invocation, flowing into polyrhymic tribal drums, evolving into ethnic tech-house… if that’s what the moment calls for. Count on it being a spiritually uplifting, sensually heart opening booty shaker of a warm-up.
Ecstatic Dance :
We gather to dance our prayers! To co-create magic and miracles! Please consider your intention for coming to dance and how you are contributing to a safe dance container for all! Mahalo!
The voice of our circle is Kris Williams, and she’ll be inviting a steady stream of talent both familiar and new to create invocations for each Sunday’s dance.
Please, give the highest respect to our hosts — Kalanimua!
