International Ecstatic Dance Fest in Ukraine!
This Fest will take place already for the third time!

Our festival is a space of creativity and dance, where we combined the party vibes of the music festivals and the depth of workshops aimed at revealing the personality ... opening the heart.

For a whole week, lovers of free and spontaneous dance, contact improvisation, performers, yogis, the strongest guides, musical shamans and all, who love to explore life and move with it's rhythm, will gather together in a beautiful place!

You do not need to be teached specially how to dance, all that is needed is to be able to listen to your body, which is ecstatic from it's nature and can guide your dance!

This is a deep practice of self-immersion, the ability to learn to move totally present in the moment, free from social restrictions, gender, age and worldviews

This is a dance ritual of connection with yourself, your body and music, your true natural state.

The Venue
Somewhere between the peaks of the Carpathian Mountains, in the heart of the Hutsul traditions, between the wild forests lies the fabulous "Polonina" ("valley" in Hutsul local language). Polonina, where the mountain rivers originate, where the wonderful aromas of herbs and flowers hover in the air, where echoes of wild birds are heard through the mountain gorges ...
It is here, among the amazing Carpathian nature, we will spend an unforgettable time with our big ecstatic family!

I heard about Ecstatic Dance. Why do I need it?
This is an opportunity to be in the safe and confidential space of dance, where you may feel yourself more deeply and express everything which comes up . This is not a dance and choreography lesson, it is a free and spontaneous dance that is born by itself if you listen to your body.
Should I know how to dance?
You already know how to dance, even if you think you don't know how :)

Ecstatic Dance is a return from head to body. It's not about how the movement looks, but how you feel it. In Ecstatic Dance you can see a huge variety of dances for the same music - from smooth to heavy, from just walking to sitting in meditation. You can move as you wish, even if it seems to you that it looks stupid - it does not matter at all. It is important that it comes from your heart.
What kind of music would it be?
Music for practice is selected from around the world, a mixture of ethnic and electronic instruments, a variety of styles and performers. Basically it is melodic and rhythmic music that affects the deep strings of your soul ...
How does it go?
This is a whole ritual that basically begins with a general acquaintance and instructions, then an introductory part to dive into the presence states and the beginning of the music set with a slower part of the music. Over time, the music accelerates, it becomes more intense, which gives you the opportunity to reveal your movements to the full. Gradually, the music becomes slow again, and the musical set smoothly ends. After that, without spilling over the state, we gather in a circle and hugging or holding hands to observe what is happening inside us. Also, sometimes, mantras or AUM are sung.
Why can't I talk on the dance floor?
The dance floor space is a safe and sacred space in which all verbal communication is not needed. All you need is to be in the flow and listen to music that itself leads you
Do I need a dance partner?
No, basically it is an independent dance. But if you have a partner, take him or her with you! You can dance solo, and you can dance together if it does not interfere with your immersion.
If you want to interact with someone unfamiliar on the dance floor, make sure that he is ready to make contact, and you will not interfere with him
What do I need to take with me?
The very first thing you need to take is your "home" - a tent, a sleeping bag, a rug !!

- 2 sets of light clothes (pants + T-shirt)
- warm clothes for evening events in case of a cold snap (warm socks, pants, sweatshirt)
- knee pads (for comfort, not required)

You will also need:
- warm clothes to sleep
- light clothing for hot days
- shoes (sneakers or sneakers)
- Sunglasses
- sunscreen
- rain cover
- personal hygiene products (wet wipes, comb, z. brush, paste, shampoo ...)
- towel
- slippers
- insect repellent
- individual medications
- a convenient and cozy mug for tea or a thermos - for gatherings in the tea zone - we will drink delicious herbs and other teas
- do not forget the chargers for your equipment :)

You may also take:
- yoga mat
- easy blanket (for massage and yoga will be very useful)
- warming or massage balsam for tired muscles and sprains
- you can take your favorite herbs, teas, coffee and spices
- Paints, favorite materials for hand-made (optional)
- camera
We welcome members with children, but at the same time we want to make sure that you understand
that the responsibility for your child and for ensuring that it does not interfere with the overall process lies on you.
May I come earlier or leave later?

Ecstatic Dance agreement
To achieve the greatest comfort, freedom of expression and safeness in space, I agree with the following:

- I do not speak in the space of dance
- I dance barefoot
- I do not come to the space of dance under alcohol or drugs
- I respect the dance space (of others and the collective space):
If you want to dance with someone, start with eye contact and make sure that the other person wants it too.

- Respect the refusal of another person (for example, when you are ignored)
- Respect the other person's right to a solo dance. For example, when your dance time has come to an end according to your partner or desire.

The Ecstatic Dance Space is a place for transformation, healing and free movement.
