Living Arts Ecstatic Dance offers a shared experience and a shared place for spontaneous, free-form movement. What each of us brings to this shared place affects everyone, and we create this experience together with:

Awareness of others and ourselves
Permission from others and ourselves
Participation through movement and presence

We practice moving in healthy community by:
Arriving without strong scents (including perfumes, oils, and body scents)
Dancing in bare feet, socks, or supportive footwear
Maintaining a nonverbal dance space
Encouraging a substance-free space
Leaving electronic devices outside the dance space
Honoring the physical space and bodies of others with awareness of consent

Pets (with the exception of service animals) are not allowed on the dance floor, or unattended in the lobby area.

*We at the Living Arts Collective, embrace all forms of diversity, including gender, race, age, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, and we work to understand and dismantle all kinds of oppression present within our community.
