About this Event
Move wild & free with Toronto’s leading weekly Ecstatic Dance every Thursday 7:30pm-10:30pm in a BIG CHURCH with 100 beautiful human beings.
We are Toronto’s leading weekly Ecstatic Dance Community with nearly 800 dances offered and counting. Literally, thousands have danced, healed and celebrated with us since our first dance in January 2006. Join our growing dance community!

We invite you to dance, sweat and connect with yourselves and each other. This is a place where you can feel free to move and express whatever is alive in you and whatever comes up when you shake up your cells. It is also nonverbal, barefoot, alcohol/drug-free to keep the experience intentional. Together we create a safe space for dance and authentic connection that is healing, inspiring and uplifting. Community, music and dance is our medicine.
“Ecstatic Dance is the way we use to gather as a community and dance to rhythms and beats for the purpose of celebration, healing, transformation and prayer.”
Julia Ray, Ecstatic Dance Toronto Visionary
