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.
FEATURING : Ombiya Ra
“My passion, my love, my spark for life has always been intertwined with the magic that each note holds as it moves my body, heart, & soul. I have spent my entire life chasing the music, usually being the listener, the receiver, and now I am able to share my own gift, my own creation, through the mixing of music I have been collecting my whole life. A deep connection I have made the last four years being a part of the Ecstatic Dance & Festival Communities in Utah, Nevada, Denver, California, Hawaii, Bali, & Thailand leading me to cultivate my own sound through knowing what has moved & transformed me in the deepest way.
My vision is to facilitate a safe & beautiful journey to help others connect deeply to themselves. I guide my dancers to a place of healing, self discovery, ecstatic states & get them connected to the present moment. The music I select takes you on your own inner journey blessed with lots of bass for opening and activating the lower chakras, starting at the root, to bring you to yourself back to your primal wild nature. I hold space for you, my dancer, to be all that you are, expressing yourself to the fullest. I love blending World Bass music, with nature sounds, tribal drums, mantras, trap, house & hiphop.
The journeys always start out slow, I love a sensual build. The music will start to rise to allow the space to get wild, we want to lose ourselves to the moment, then a slow comedown to end in a mediation to reconnect to the heart and really feel the release that has been washed away by vibration, movement, community, safety, and love. I am so excited to step into this new role as a space creator, as DJ Ombiya Ra. I can’t wait to share so many memories with you!”
