Ecstatic Dance is for the celebration of self expression, connection with supportive and cooperative community, and being just how and who you are.
On the verge of the spring equinox, balancing between night and day, Ecstatic Dance Chicago is joined by Greenheart Transforms to add fuel to our fire, and to bring more attention to this evolution that is happening in the social dance scene. With both organizations founded on service to humanity’s highest expression, you can expect an even greater ease in being and expressing your authentic self.
You are invited to dance freely, and to bask in the joy of who you are. Our wish is for you to take this experience home, and let it guide you, even if just for a little bit.

– 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 exploratory and safe classroom with like minded people.
DJ Taz Rashid (DJ TAZ) brings a high vibrational energy to any crowd instantly by mixing the beats and rhythms of Love, Ancient New World, Remixes, House, Kirtan, Devotional, and all the cosmic sounds. His vision is to be a channel to cause the expansion of all those around by tapping into the creative wisdom of the body and allowing them to feel, let go and awaken.
– Sound Journey, out of this world dreamscape vibration activation.
