“When we let go of fears, judgements, self doubt, expectations, conditionings, pressures, worries and stress, and open our mind to being in free movement… stepping into the present moment… immersed in magnificent music and positive, uplifting energy… in playful harmony with life… in the flow on the wings of love… this is how it feels like…”

If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable experience of Ecstatic Dancing in nature, surrounded by the shimmering waters of the Biscayne Bay, under the open starry sky, while overlooking the stunning Miami/Brickell skyline, our upcoming June Full Moon Sunset~Moonrise Ecstatic Dance Cruise on June 3rd is the event for you.
Unlike other boat parties that are often associated with heavy drinking and rowdy behavior, our cruise is a refreshing departure from the norm. Our cruise is all about immersing yourself in the beauty of nature, tuning deeper into yourself and connecting with other mindful, open-hearted individuals in a safe and welcoming environment.
We’ll set sail on a 40ft, open dance floor, pontoon at 7pm sharp and take you to a secluded island for an hour-long embodiment class on the beach. If you prefer to simply relax and soak in the atmosphere, we’ll have plenty of water toys to keep you entertained.
As the sun sets, we’ll embark on an Ecstatic Dance journey, where we’ll dance freely on the open deck, overlooking the stunning Miami skyline, as we wait for the June Full Moon to rise and light up the sky.
Our event, as usual, has a strict “no booze, no talking on the dancefloor” policy, ensuring a mindful and uplifting experience for everyone.
This isn’t the typical boat party with alcohol and chaos. It’s meant to be a blissful experience designed specifically for the Ecstatic Dance Miami community to come together, connect, feel deeper into ourselves and others while dancing in nature, in a safe and uplifting environment.
We have a limited space available for a maximum of 36 participants, so get your tickets early. The first 25 tickets will be discounted until they’re gone.

Why Ecstatic Dance?
I think it’s important to talk a bit about why we do Ecstatic Dance. On my personal spiritual path, in my search for Truth and after seeking deep answers in western psychology, I discovered a few spiritual practices which truly allowed me to regain my true sense of Oneness, where the endless seeking, needing, missing and their associated feelings of inner lack and misery just stops. Those disciplines for me have been Yoga, Tantra, Ecstatic Dance and Aquatic Healingwork (Watsu), which all boil down to full presence and Meditation.
How is it different from other regular dances? Our intention with Ecstatic Dance is on increasing our inner sensitivity and honesty within ourselves. Focusing our attention inwards instead of looking outwards for approval or fulfilment. To truly witness our inner world, unvarnished, with its particular sets of feelings, energies, emotions, sensualities. Moving our attention away from our thoughts and desires into the expression of our innerworld, our light and shadow, using the emotive energy that music and interactions with others generate to tantricly raise it up, down from our base root up into our crown, creating an energetic fire which cleanses our inner being from blockages, restrictions, emotions, needs & desires and trepidations.
We do Ecstatic Dance to recover our sense of wholeness within ourselves not necessarily with another, although intimate connections with others can help us along the way. We do Ecstatic Dance to increase our inner sensitivity becoming truer to who we really are and ultimately become empty bamboos, energetic, clean vessels of pure energy where only BLISS & LOVE is all that remains.
Hope you’ll be able to join us and experience it for yourself. ~Alex
