I am happy to welcome you to Ecstatic Dance Swiss
My name is Johanna Köb - the Founder and Organiser of Ecstatic Dance Swiss/Zurich.
I feel much gratitude to facilitate this space and to gather a community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things.
Through dance, I believe everyone can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. By engaging our senses and listening to our bodies, we connect to others and shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own.
Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and the fearlessness with which others move gives newbies permission and courage to dance without inhibition.
How it works?
You can arrive at anytime during the event
The opening ceremony takes place beforehand which then opens up into a freeform dance journey facilitated by our DJs. At the end of the set we close with some sound healing or group exercise to ground and complete the journey.
What happens on the dance floor?
You are welcome to dance, move and to be in silence however you please. We ask that all honor the shared space and one another.
Why we don’t talk on the dance floor?
“At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits. We leave behind the words and worries of the day, and connect with spirit and each other in new ways“ Donna Carroll - Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland
Are children welcome?
We love children, and all kids under 16 are free with adult supervison. Ear protection is suggested.
What should I do if i forget something?
Lost & Found is kept in a box next to the kassa table at the Ecstatic Dance Event. It is put every time and periodically donated to local charities.
What if I have a comment or suggestion?
