We’re kicking off April in epic fashion with the legend of the ecstatic dance & conscious festival scene, DJ Dragonfly!
A magic carpet ride of sound transports the dancefloor when Dragonfly throws down his full-spectrum, body-mind-soul transglobal sound experience where cutting-edge, polyrhythmic akashic bass meets primordial sound, elastic dreamtempo, tribal mayhem, and ecstatic bliss.
Come join us for this powerful and enlivening event of freeform dance, embodied movement, music and community. See you on the dance floor!

➤ DJ DRAGONFLY
As a consummate crate-digger his days are spent down the rabbit-holes of sound, constantly discovering emerging talent and the hidden gems of sonic possibility. With an ear for the exotic and a background in movement arts, his approach is through the emotive keyhole of the psyche, while unlocking the heart of the dancefloor community. As a percussionist who’s adventured extensively throughout the near and far east, his mixes span all tempos and all genres of electronic dance music. His selections are drenched in global idioms, accented with tribal motifs, and interwoven with relentlessly intoxicating rhythm and groove.
PAST APPEARANCES: Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis Festival, Envision Festival(Costa Rica), Enchanted Forest Festival, Northern Nights Festival, Lucidity Festival, Earthdance, Burning Man, Stilldream, Manifest, Great Convergence (Egypt), Shambala (Canada), Beloved, Global Eclipse(Australia & Oregon), Mystic Garden, Raindance Festival, Harmony Festival, Sonic Bloom, Wanderlust, Foreverland and many others…
➤ How it works:
We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.
➤What to expect:
Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, to connect, and to expand together.

Join us and enjoy a safe and inspiring space to dance without talking, drinking, and the nightclub vibe. This is about self-expression, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and those around you. No booze, no shoes and no chit-chat on the dance floor helps us keep it intentional. Amazing music helps us keep it all about Dance.
▸ No talking on the dance floor (there’s room to talk in the lounge space or quietly at the edge of 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 Carrol (Co-Founder Ecstatic Dance Oakland)
