Come Dance! We are setting up a safe space to let go, tap in, and feel vibrantly alive through ecstatic movement.
A wave of eclectic beats will gently warm up your body and build to a stomping ecstatic pulse. Winding down softly, things will wrap up with sound healing and intention.
Lets create something BEAUTIFUL.
1. To honor and deepen the journey we request no talking on the dance floor.
2. Care/Awareness for the space and each other
3. Move your body however you wish
4. You can dance alone, or with as many partners as (you) like to join. (If you’d rather not dance with someone, thank them for the offer by placing your hands in prayer position at your heart – Namaste.)
Omar Aena is a conscious dance ambassador and community organizer based in New York City. His passion and focus is in bringing people together to experience a sense of belonging, connection and freedom.
He is co-organizer, facilitator and DJ at Ecstatic Dance NYC and creator of Dance Lab, a weekly event in Brooklyn for somatic inquiry. A student of various mystical traditions – including Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, Advaita Vedanta and other philosophies of non-duality – Omar seeks to integrate these age-old, wisdom teachings into his life in the big city.
His background in Conscious Dance started in 2012 when he was introduced to 5Rhythms and then eventually Ecstatic Dance. This set him off on a journey around the world, meeting and dancing with many different communities, absorbing various styles, flavors and inspirations from each one. He has now stepped into DJ’ing, where his globally inspired + NYC rooted taste in music has been shaking and awakening conscious dance floors around the world.
All of the great spiritual cultures held dance sacred – as a means to purify, enlighten, and release the vast stores of energy inside us. Justin draws strength from this lineage, creating a dialog on the dance floor of shared beats, sweat, and blissful states of being. He reaches deep and plays a huge range of music – from his roots in House Music through Latin and African flavors, Bass and Dub.
