Taste the atmosphere

Ecstatic Dance for Body, Mind & Spirit

Dancing is not only good for your physical body, it also has numerous benefits for your mental health. It reduces stress, boosts your confidence, increases your frequency and general sense of well-being.


Experience a deep connection with yourself by being allowed to be completely your authentic self. And that together with a group of dancers, creates strong connection and sense of belonging. Nothing is more unifying than meeting each other in an authentic dance!

Spiritual growth

Ecstatic Dance offers a space where you can grow, come to self-insight and develop yourself spiritually. It is a place to explore deeper layers within yourself, come into higher consciousness and experience oneness with yourself and others.


Our festival is all about expressing yourself through dance and movement. This offers a powerful way to express your emotions, creativity and personality. There is also plenty of room for vocal expression, during our concerts, ceremonies and voice workshops.

Intense! Experienced so many (positive) emotions that left the "I" all-alone. In short, the "I" merged with everyone and everything. This allows you to see clearly when another could use your kindness, a wise word or loving gesture. Others then also act even more positively toward you. So that does make every-one happier. What a joy to come together like this and be together Wonderful people, impressive location and powerful co-creation!

You don't have to travel to the other side of the world. You just come to the Ecstatic Dance Festival for a magical journey within yourself. I found it delightful and special again! Once again met beautiful people. I feel grateful and am already looking forward to next time.

What I value and appreciate is to feel how much the public is tuned into a fully receptive way of listening: they are not consuming the music, but rather they invite it into themselves as a meaningful and sacred experience that creates a beautiful field of love and connection around the performance which feels special.
