DOORS OPEN @ 7:45pm – Stretch / Gather / Connect
*** 8pm – 9pm Improv Play with Dennis Eminhizer
Dennis is one of the co-producers of Ecstatic Dance and has been in a long time practice of Contact Improv and Comedy Improv. He has combined his love for movement and playful connection into this fun and connective class.
“I see you playful dancers. As children we find games in the absurdity of our unknowing. Then forgetting this our minds explain away in an empty distance the experience of life. Let’s play again in our expressive dance. We will leave verbal dialogue behind and guided by comedy improv principals explore our collective imaginations in simple games and prompts. You know how to move ~ your intuition, listening, and generous teamwork will do the rest. There will be laughter and deeper discovery of the beautiful spirits of our dance tribe.
This class will consist of non-verbal, movement based, comedy improv games (not ‘contact improv’ though there will be both contact and improv).
We will ‘perform’ small works with others in front of others. This may be different than your previous performance experience for there is nothing to prepare, you will have teammates, and everyone participates ~ leading to a generous audience.
Bring your curiosity, wonder, attentiveness, emotions, and loose fitting clothing.”
*** 9pm – 10:50pm – Ecstatic Dance Journey w/ DJ KAMINANDA
San Diego Local and World Traveler Kaminanda will be gracing us with his orginal and mixed music beats.
Kaminanda’s ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and lush downtempo textures. His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.
*** 10:50pm- 11:00pm – Sound Healing Journey: Music Medicine with Andrew Belinsky
Andrew will take us on a journey into our hearts and soul’s with his sacred music medicine journey. Andrew Belinsky is a spiritual mentor and musical enzyme. His primary mediums are yoga, music medicine and circle facilitation. He holds certificates in yoga (RYT-200), Music Medicine Facilitation (MMF) and Health Rhythms Drum Circle Facilitation.

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, and 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…
***LIMITED WORK TRADE opportunities available and MUST BE ARRANGED IN ADVANCE, contact Melissa June
