✨✨VIRTUAL EVENT SAT 8/8 @ 5pm FOR BIPOC FEMMES AGES 7-17 REGISTRATION IN BIO✨✨ ecstatic dance is a kind of expression without the need to look any particular way. Ecstatic dance is a form of self expression that is just for you, it’s not performative, it’s not about being seen. It’s a special way to to check in with your body on a personal intimate level.So often our bodies are put on display and our movement is stigmatized or commodified. Ecstatic dance is a way to reclaim movement for ourselves through a moving meditation that allows you to connect to your heart and your ancestors.
This kind of movement resists the expectations and demands put on Our Black Femme Bodies. Ecstatic dance is a way of reclaiming our bodies and our space for our own purposes, for our own expression, for our own bliss.
Join us on the dance floor (in the comfort of your home) 💗✨✊🏽
