Ecstatic Dance Santa Cruz: Down Temple

Our vision for Ecstatic DownTemple is to create a seamless flowing journey that supports ever deepening connection to self and other. There's a special medicine provided by deep, slow, and connected movement. This is not a venue for dancers to get a sweat on, the cathartic peaks we seek are more spiritual and heart-felt than physical.

A simple definition of Ecstatic Dance is “Bass Music Culture meets Conscious Dance”. In that light, the heart of Ecstatic DownTemple is Bass Music, which is what sets it apart from a typical chill space or ambient music contact jam/freeform movement space. While the music will have a wide dynamic range including moments of ambient beauty--including acoustic and organic textures and instrumentation--there will be some powerful bass and cutting-edge electronic music in the mix.
