Ecstatic Dance South Bay
Ecstatic Dance South Bay is an ocean sunset dance. It’s an intentional sound journey shaped with free-form movement. It’s a substance-free, ego-free dance floor overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Manhattan Beach pier. It’s a sacred space, safe and inviting, open and refreshing.

We are contact improv friendly, consent and manners required. If you choose to take it to the floor, be mindful of the all dancers and move your ground movement to the edges of the floor.
The music: We play world organica, exploratory & inspiring music. The first 30 min of the evening is warmup. Then the music builds several times so dancers can dance their full wave, landing gently into stillness.
