*Ecstatic Dance

Ecstatic Dance is about getting out of your head and into your body.
It’s not about the way the movement looks. It’s about how it feels.

Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and the fearlessness with which others move gives newbies permission and courage to dance without inhibition.

All are welcome, including People of Color, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, and Same-Gender Loving People.

Ben Pavlidis is a songwriter, producer, and also known as the frontman of the Berlin band Ohrbooten. On his musical path he developed a deep passion for bass music and in his DJ-Sets, he is defiantly paying homage to the beloved bass frequency. The half Greek half German grew up in west Berlin and the city has always fed him with an eclectic mix of urban, world, and electronic music. The essence of all his genre is a super danceable mix of global bass music.

Since 3 years he dedicated his passion for music and DJing to ecstatic dance. He loves to create a wave with different emotional islands and will always serve a mixture of classics tracks and underground music soaked in a great bass-shower.

Anything that allows you to move comfortably. No shoes required.

Bring a water bottle, towel and cloth to change.

Ecstatic Dance is a barefoot practice. If you need to wear shoes due to health reasons, dance-specific shoes are allowed, but only shoes that have never been worn on the street.
