Course overview

Why not try a dance for health and happiness workshop and go on a journey of sound & movement – for Healing, Celebration and Communion? This workshop guides you through the history, philosophy and health benefits of ecstatic dancing.

Please Note: You do not need to be a dancer to take part in this workshop, there are no set dance moves to follow, you simply tune into the music and move your body.

After the welcoming introduction, we will dance for 90 minutes starting with slow openers to warm up the body, moving onto intense tribal beats and ending with relaxing serene heavenly sounds. During this resting stage, you can lie on the floor to integrate and tune into your body.

These Ecstatic Dance events will be led by Elene Marsden aka DJ Chica who has just returned from 7 months in Bali where she trained as a dance for health and happiness DJ.

Elene says the music will uplift your spirits and inspire you to come back each week for more exercise and feel good endorphins.

There are a few agreements during the dance for health and happiness events:


Please bring: water, a cushion or a yoga mat to lie on and wear comfortable clothing. Dressing up is always an option too!
