Ecstatic Dance Albuquerque

Dance the way your body wants to, without choreography or judgement! Get out of your head and into your body, discover the innate body wisdom you possess.

Ecstatic Dance is an authentic, spontaneous, expressive, meditative movement practice that incorporates elements of various body - mind - movement practices. Go beyond the limits of your habitual movement patterns and explore your inner dance. We typically dance barefooted without verbal interaction. There is no choreography or instruction. A focus, a poetry reading, or other dance practice sugge

Operating as usual

Our first dance back at Studo Sway was heart opening. In Mary Oliver's poem Wild Geese, she says, "You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." And, together we made space for that to happen. It is great to be dancing in community again and we will be dancing all Tuesday nights in August! To attend this dance, register by emailing me at [email protected]. This dance is limited to 12 dancers. Proof of vaccination is required.

[05/12/21]   Last night's poem:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’doesn’t make any sense.

Rumi

[03/06/21]   All, I am not moving to Kauai. I had to fool FB into thinking I live in Kauai to sell things on FB Marketplace in Kauai. Really need to figure out how to get FB to stop sending out all changes I make to my account.

05/26/2020

Do you feel it. We will be together again soon.

Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds. Rumi

Iswarya & Shruthi Dance - Indian Heritage Centre

[04/08/20]   TILICHO LAKE
In this high place
it is as simple as this,
leave everything you know behind.
Step toward the cold surface,
say the old prayer of rough love
and open both arms.
Those who come with empty hands
will stare into the lake astonished,
there, in the cold light
reflecting pure snow
the true shape of your own face.

I am here~ Rumi ~read by Coleman Barks

Wonderful Albuquerque Dance Tribe, let's dance together tonight at our regular time. I will send out one of my MixCloud playlists. Once you connect to MixCloud, all you need to do is start the playlist at 7:05, warm up, and dance as we do together. I look forward to feeling our beautiful tribal energy again! The thing I miss the most is the tenderness, love, and freedom that is experienced when we come together. The Poem this evening is the Rumi poem, I Am Here, read by Coleman Barks.

As I peruse the FB dance sites, I see that many people are offering online dances on Zoom. I will participate in one of these dances and then decide if this is something that might work for us. Please message me separately if this is something that appeals to you. If enough people express interest, I will give online dancing a try next Tuesday at our regular time.

[03/18/20]   Dear Tribe, I have decided not to facilitate dances during this pandemic. I care about all of you and in light of what is going on around us now, I see no reason to risk my health or yours when it is simply not necessary. I had planned to go to Kauai on Thursday but I decided to stay close to home. When it makes sense to begin dancing in community again, whether that be indoors or outdoors, I will let you know and you in turn will decide for yourself if the time is right for you.

As we all know, "this too shall pass."
With love, Elizabeth

Hey Beautiful Albuquerque Tribe, I am looking forward to dancing with you again. I have returned from my travels and I am grateful to be back in enchanting New Mexico - what a lovely place to live, love, and dance. Love, love, love,
Elizabeth

Dancing insists we take up space, and though it has no set direction, we go there together. Dance is dangerous, joyous, sexual, holy, disruptive, and contagious and it breaks the rules. It can happen anywhere, at anytime, with anyone and everyone, and it's free. Dance joins us and pushes us to go further...
~ Eve Ensler.

[12/26/19]   Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
Rainer Maria Rilke
