As the day turns to night we come together to be playful, meditative, sexy, confident and any other way we wish to experience our self.
Ecstatic Dance is for the celebration of self expression, connection with supportive community, and being just how and who you are.

Roman Borochin, Sara Herff, Janie Crick.
– Empower Movement with Janie Crick
Empower Movement is rooted in the principle that the only person who has control over your body is YOU and what better way to love on yourself than to play. The class starts with intention setting and will continue with stretching, alignment, and discovering your kinesphere, or personal bubble, as well as others. Janie will guide participants through Self-Love and Organic Expression of the body. In this class participants learn how to give themselves permissions. Permissions with our body to move, to feel, to play around in an exploritory and safe classroom with like minded people.
Guiding dance journeys is an expanding practice for Roman. He learned to dj in 2003, mixing records in his moms basement on borrowed equipment. In 2007 he became a facilitator of Kundalini Dance which showed him how music and sound has an effect on the energetic and emotional body. Since then he has been organizing and djing different incarnations of guided and ecstatic dances, in Chicago. His passion is to share rhythm and melody from cultures all over the world, and to present quality of production in music that baffles the mind, and engulfs the body.
