Live performed wold music by professional musicians, who are creating from the heart. Every note is improvised, created on the spot inspired by the Ecstatic Dance community.
Ecstatic Dance is a free movement space in which dance expands, spirit activates and beauty flows. As community we are connected the whole time, even if we dance by ourselves.
Dragonfly provides a unique musical mix that makes the body want to move by healing sounds & dynamic percussive rhythms. The music transforms people in their state of being. Carried by musicians who tune in on the dancers with what is present in the moment. Not to think about how you want to dance but to feel what’s present to move in your body. The music is uplifting followed by calm music, or vice versa, alternately ecstatic, wild, calm, melodious and moving. No performance is the same, every note is improvised. The music comes from the magical combination of many different musicians and instruments.
