A journey through movement, dance , breath work and kundalini shakingbringing your body, mind and soul to complete ecstasy and joy.

Ecstatic awaking dance has it roots in shamanic trance dance and Osho meditation technique creating a moving experience of coming into your body, finding your authentic movement  expression. We have all the answers  within ourself . Through movement we can access clarity more easy.

  • Shaking releases all the blocks and awakens the journey, allowing the energy to build
  • We dance the journey from deep within – most of this journey is done with closed eyes taking you deep within to observe release and transform through movement
  • Ww drop into silence -back to being nothing but pure energy  – one with all creation
  • A journey of dance  – Ecstatic awaking Dance

Contact Improvisation classes – Wednesdays at 7.15pm

WE ARE EXCITED TO LAUNCH A NEW MOVEMENT CLASS – WEDNESDAYS 7.15 – 8.30PM

Contact Improvisation (CI) is a dance technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for movement improvisation and exploration.

Its an experimental dance form allowing creativity to flow.

Working with a few basic principles as a guide: giving and receiving weight – understanding the rolling point of contact – working with the laws of physics of momentum – gravity, space, inertia and friction – Contact Improvisation brings you totally present and in honour of every moment, learning to listen with the body.

In the class experience you will learn:

  • the natural body patterns of movement
  • how to spiral in and out of contact – sharing and giving weight
  • to allow play and fun back into your movement

*Regular studio class rates apply

The classes will be taught by Lulu Erasmus (a certified ecstatic awaking dance teacher and performance artist) who is passionate about Contact dance. For her movement is a path to enlightenment … “we learn a lot through free movement in the body as we store a lot of memories and emotions in the body and these can be healed and transformed through movement.”  

Lulu has hosted and guided dance journeys  around the world helping people to align themselves with their greater potential of living in joy love and success.
