***9pm – 10pm – Dance is Life facilitated by Gabriel Francisco

As an International presenter, Gabriel Francisco has spent the last 16 years connecting, sharing and inspiring on the highest, most professional level of dance education. From studios and workshops in Japan and Brazil to teaching choreography in Europe, Russia, Australia, and New Zealand, Gabriel has given his entire adult life over to unlocking the movement potential in other beings.

This class is dynamic zen, body/mind connection, human awareness, FREEstyle (to be free of style.) It is primal, inclusive, basic and advanced. Movers will discover more about themselves and therefore the world around them; Keys to life, living and loving. We will work both solo, duo and in groups. This lecture & dance workshop fusion is a movement catalyst, life changer and a whole lot of fun!

*** 10pm – Midnight – Ecstatic Dance Journey featuring Gabriel Francisco

The wild and deep score of a future-ancient gathering. The soundtrack of the Cosmos, vibrating and rich with movement potential. Electronic percussion, heady almost nostalgic in its real-time recollection. Windy, wet and silky, yet Earthy, tanned and ashy. Sonic support for the Soul, binding past, releasing present and moving the future!

As an international dancer, teacher, and choreographer, Gabriel’s entire professional career has been to take movers on an enriching, educational and insightful journey. In class it has been with movement he creates to music he loves, spinning tales, giving advice, helping, healing… (www.youtube.com/mdorsai)

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines

1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
4. Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol Free Space
5. Please also refrain from photos, video, shoes & scents.

Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another.

To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: Are they open to sharing their space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see & feel how they respond…

Ecstatic Dance San Diego is a modern movement merging ancient tribal wisdom to bring connection and healing back to the people through movement, dance and community. We’d be honored if you invite your friends and help us spread the word.
