Artists:

PŪRYA and GreyFox are alchemical curators of sonic states of rapture. Devoted to threading mystical and musical voyages that evoke prayer, presence, and pleasure their intention is to create dance experiences that invite the ceremonial animal of one's body on a journey of expression at once soft and wild. Endlessly fulfilled and inspired by the sense of celebration, community, connection, and spirituality they have discovered on dance floors, PŪRYA and GreyFox create temple spaces to move the soul into ecstatic states of trance and dance, welcoming one home to the deep embodiment of wonder. Endlessly amazed by the unfolding path, they invite you to join them on a deep dive into ancient remembrance and sacred joy.

COME AS YOU ARE. DANCE AS YOU PLEASE.

DANCE HOW YOU WANT. NO JUDGEMENT.

HOW IT WORKS

We open into a wide circle and do some light stretching which then transitions into a freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ's. At the end of the set we close with some sound healing or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DANCE FLOOR?

People of all walks of life, shapes and sizes are welcome to dance however they please. We ask that all honour the shared space and one another: This means being mindful of your own movements and also being aware of the people around you. Refrain from touching or invading others' personal space without their permission. Consent must be given

No talking: To allow for a fully immersive and meditative experience, ecstatic dance events typically have a no-talking policy on the dance floor. You're welcome to chat and socialize in other areas of the venue, but keep the dance floor as a sacred space for movement and expression.

No shoes: Many ecstatic dance events ask that you dance barefoot or wear non-slip socks to create a more grounded and natural experience.

No drugs or alcohol: Ecstatic dance is meant to be a drug-free and alcohol-free environment, allowing you to connect with your body and mind in a more natural way.

Move in your own way: There's no right or wrong way to move in ecstatic dance, so feel free to express yourself however you feel. Dance with abandon and let go of any self-consciousness or judgment.

Stay present/ No phone on the dance floor: Try to stay focused on the present moment and the music, rather than getting lost in your thoughts or worries. Allow the music to guide your movements and emotions.
