the dance floor
is a sacred space

At Halifax Ecstatic Dance, we believe in the transformative power of movement and music. Our dance floor is a sacred space where individuals can freely express themselves, connect with their inner selves, and experience profound emotional release. Guided by principles of respect, inclusivity, and community, we foster an environment where everyone feels safe and welcomed. We adhere to the values of non-judgment, mindfulness, and presence, ensuring that each participant can dance without inhibition or fear. Our sessions are held regularly at the Sanctuary Art Centre in Dartmouth, where we come together to celebrate life, embrace our authenticity, and dance with abandon. Join us in this sacred space and let the rhythm move you
