About The Event

ABOUT THE NIGHT Monica Adams will lead an intention setting circle and warm-up activation, where you will learn movements that help relieve stagnant energy. Once our heart-rates are up, we will then break into the silence portion of the ecstatic dance. During the silent ecstatic dance portion, you're encouraged to move your body to the music with full permission to feel into the language of dance with the intention towards loving women. Lastly, we will close with meditation and a sharing circle to recognize how dance can be a powerful way to rally for a cause. We rise to shed light on the unsettling fact that 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. We rise – in countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on loving our women . We rise determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence becomes unthinkable. Each year one billion people from across the globe join in dance from Sydney to New York City. Will you add to the count? Consent We ask that you dance solo. If you are called to dance with another, please get a nonverbal agreement, such as a head nod. No touching is permitted. No Speaking No speaking will be tolerated once the ecstatic dance begins to support the maximization of dropping into the full experience. If you crave a conversation, please step away from the dance floor. Non-Judgment Honor our fullest expression by having zero judgments of both yourself and others. We dance to release, not to gain attention.
