Ecstatic Dance DJ Training

Samaveda International Sound Healing Academy – Offers Ecstatic Dance DJ Training In Ubud, Bali

Join us for a 5-day training into weaving musical knowledge for Ecstatic and Mindful Dance. It is easy to get lost as an inspiring DJ, as there is an overload of methods and genres to explore, and you lose sight of why you DJ. We will focus on the heart and the art of DJing so you can decide which skills to develop as a DJ. Our Training starts by listening, rooting ourselves in their story and understanding the various phases of the journey. You will encounter various styles and types of music and their effect on the dancing body. We will dive into the practicalities and skills to create your own set, mix and improvise during a set – while listening to your crowd. With this knowledge, you can use all the aspects of your craft to go beyond the mere technicality of playing songs and create magic on the dance floor.

This Ecstatic dance Dj & Facilitator training will cover everything needed for Ecstatic Dance. You can communicate with others in your style from a place of service, playfulness and love!

For us, the Heart of DJ’ing is about creating a Dance Journey. Mixing, transitioning, and selecting different genres is in service of the Dance. Creating a dance journey is about more than just placing tracks one after the other. It is about helping the dancers arrive in their bodies, lifting them over the threshold and into a deep surrender. It also supports them in finding their feet again and moving back into their daily lives.

What is the purpose of ecstatic Dance?

It is a free-flowing dance to achieve ecstasy. It is a natural process in which your awareness shifts, and you experience a profoundly meditative and happy state of mind through free-flowing body movements.

What is an ecstatic dance DJ? | What is Ecstatic Dance?

Ecstatic Dance is a freeform dance practice that happens worldwide in small and big spaces. It is usually 1-3 hours long and always has a DJ who mixes music like a club. The significant differences from your typical club are: There is no talking on the dance floor.

Ecstatic Dance sessions did not include dance technique or movement classes. They aim to provide a space of non-verbal communication and FREEDOM where you can be yourself and express your being through Dance and MOVEMENT. Music is a kaleidoscope of varied rhythms; it makes us float together in a sea of sensations as individuals of a large family. Ecstatic Dance is an international movement that aims to create COMMUNITY through Dance.

Ecstatic Dance is a form in which the dancers don’t follow specific steps; they only follow the rhythm and move freely as per the music. The effects of ecstatic Dance begin with joy, which differing abilities may experience, and dancers expressed feeling interconnected to others and their feelings. The Dance acts as a form of meditation, enabling people to cope with stress and attain serenity.

Ecstatic Dance is a free-flowing dance to perform ecstasy. It is a natural state in which your attention shifts, and you experience a happy meditative state of mind via body movements. But it is fun to move your body to melody; Ecstatic Dance was established to help your physical and mental health.

Ecstatic Dance is good because there are no rules! There are only three basic rules to remember while joining an Ecstatic Dance.

No alcohol/drugs

No talking

No judgment

Besides, you’ll have no limitations during an Ecstatic Dance session! There is no choreography, no particular music genre, and there is nothing but love and acceptance around you. It is a safe space to express yourself how you truly want.

Make space in your house. If you have a small apartment, move your furniture to practice the wildest dance moves. You should not be confined to one square meter of Freedom!

Make sure you’re not disturbed. Mute your phone, and ask your flatmates not to disturb you for a while. It is time for you.

Set the mood. Creating the right ambience for you to be mentally satisfied in another place is essential. You can do a few things to achieve that. One of which is lighting incense or a scented candle. The smell can trigger memories of other places and times – which could be very nice if you want to ‘escape’ your own home for a bit.

Close your eyes. You may feel self-conscious. If that happens, close your eyes, dim the lights and focus on the music. Wait until you feel the need to start dancing.

Start slow. If you still feel a little bit insecure. Start by tapping your feet to the beat or bobbing your head. Slowly increase your movements – there is no need to go wild if you don’t want to yet!

  1. Be aware and respect the space of fellow dancers
  2. Obtain explicit consent each time before making physical contact with another
  3. Refrain from talking
  4. Attend in a sober state
  5. Refrain from explicit sexual activity
  6. Be barefoot, if possible
  7. No cell phone use or taking photos/video
  8. Avoid wearing solid scents (Be clean!)
  9. Dance Tribe is a ceremonial space
