Ecstatic Dance: Best Friends Edition SheWxlf + CBC

On National Best Friends Day, Saturday, June 8, join us for this epic edition of Ecstatic Dance celebrating friendships through connection and dance.

We’ll begin the evening with a Contact Beyond Contact workshop exploring the depths of relationship between ourselves and each other through many layers of contact – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual – and play contact improv games while taking time in between exercises to share our experience. (more info below)

Then, we’ll take a short break before diving into an ecstatic dance journey with SheWxlf!

SHEWXLF (Bhanu Nandini) brings listeners around the world and back to center. Bending sound genres infused with spirit and nature, SHEWXLF’s ambient soundscapes weave Medicine Music, Tribal Beats, Mantra, Multi-Culti rhythms and voices, Hip Hop and Sacred Bass.
SHEWXLF invites dancers to explore the deepest parts of themselves in Truth, Healing, Courage, & Plavfulness.

What is Contact Beyond Contact? 

From a deep sense of listening, Contact Beyond Contact is a somatic movement practice that offers a profound opportunity to deepen awareness in relationship with yourself, with one another, and with Spirit. It provides a clear structure to orient to the vibrations of different states that are eternally present. CBC weaves ancient healing practices with modern function.

As the facilitator, Cameo Rose aims to create an environment that strengthens safety within, so we can create magic together. She stands for connection, authenticity, and trust. 

Drawing from over 10 years of therapeutic dance, she opens awareness to release trauma and discover exquisite truth. As a Craniosacral therapist, Crisis Stabilization Specialist, and bodyworker, she holds an anchor to recognize one’s inner truth. Let’s find it and uncover your inner wisdom as we move and connect with each other. This class invites you to literally lean on each other. 

This contact practice establishes a strong foundation to enter the Ecstatic Dance realm directly following class. We aim to cultivate a more connected community through authentic movement. So, bring your whole self and let’s play.

Join us to co-regulate nervous system health, lose yourself in dance, and find a deeper connection with your source power… together.
