Ecstatic Dance LIVE

Ecstatic Dance LIVE MUSIC
a dance journey with the Eric James and Friends
8pm to 10pm at the Pacific Cultural Center (1307 Seabright Ave.)
$15 at the door
$10 Student/Senior rate
Open to all ages (5 and under free)

Please join us at the Pacific Cultural Center for this special evening as we offer our monthly LIVE MUSIC experience for Ecstatic Dance here in Santa Cruz.

Come enjoy an evening of togetherness while moving to live sound and music. Be part of a collaborative experience of musicians feeding and being fed by the dance. Music will begin slowly with ambient sounds; inviting a gentle warm up for our bodies, moving into downtempo songs and grooves, build up to a catharsis boosted by drums and percussion, then returning to downtempo/chill vibes and ending with an ambient sound integration "shivasana" to end our journey. 

Guitars, bass, keyboards, strings, singing bowls, bells, flutes, percussion, and voices will be woven together for the sound journey and songs. Eric will also be joined by a varying combination of musicians usually including ENAHENA, Terre Lee, Anthony Orlando and other surprise guests.

Doors will close at 9:30pm. No one admitted after that time!

No shoes, no booze, no talking on the dance floor.

Ecstatic Dance is a freeform, conscious movement experience. Move however you wish. Respect the space, yourself, and each other.

This is a smoke and scent free event! ♥
