In this gathering we dance 100%, in a clean environment of alcohol, drugs and smoke, where our infinite energy is revealed through movement.

Ecstatic Dance is an international free dance movement that invites us to dance and celebrate. On the dance floor, the proposal is not to talk, not to use the phone and surrender to the music in barefoot, at the rhythm of a sound journey that takes us to many places in our body and soul.

Ecstatic Dance is inspired by the work of Gabrielle Roth (70’s choreographer) who realized that dance had great therapeutic effects.

Following the Ecstatic international manual, the sound wave goes through 7 phases where different rhythms and states take us on a unique journey!

The movement in Portugal is growing and the community grows every year.

Virgílio Beatriz is the founder, space holder, facilitator & Dj at Ecstatic Dance & Voice Portugal and the big. booster of the Ecstatic Dance movement in Portugal, where he has helped many Ecstatics to start in Portugal – and is always available to help more Ecstatic Dances to be born around the world : )
