    Event description

    Inspire flow, harmonise your heart and expand your mind in a fusion of dance, sound and visualisation at Manly Expansion Dance!

    Join us for some groovy beats that'll move you deep into the dance. The intention is to grow whatever you'd love to expand in your life.

    Arrive and warm up on the dance floor with stretching and movement to the music. Once everyone has landed in the space, we'll open with a welcoming, Didjeridoo by Vai and drop into a visualisation with Kev to expand what our hearts know is possible. Then, we boogie!

    It's not about trying to look good on the dance floor. It's about feeling what's true and alive in the body and moving with that, however that may look! Feel welcomed in a safe and judge free environment while DJ Adriano takes us on an ecstatic musical journey with drumming by Wyld Sunshine in magic moments throughout.

    Get ready to enter a potent portal that will allow space for whatever wants to be expressed, little or large. After the dance, we will marinade in a sound bath led by Mia Burlinson to let all the juiciness sink into our cells.

    Whether it's your 1st or 1000th ecstatic dance experience, all are welcome! Doors lock at 7:45pm. Wear clothes you can move freely in and bring a water bottle and your intentions. That's all you need :) 

    About the Experience

    Guided Visualisation: Awareness and Inspiration

    Attune to our inner worlds with a guided visualisation, led by Kev.

    The intention is to centre, cultivate presence and connect with what our hearts would love to expand. We'll breathe together, envisage our intentions and expand them with the sounds of a RAV Vast drum and vocals.

    Ecstatic Dance: Freedom in Movement

    Embark on an Ecstatic Dance journey, led by DJ Adriano and drumming by Wyld Sunshine in magic moments throughout.

    A liberating and expressive dance form that encourages free-form movement without words on the dance floor in a judgment-free space.

    Immerse yourself in tribal beats, drumming, ancient sounds, melodies and music that invites your body to move in ways that feel deep, natural, expansive and joyful.

    Sound Bath: Vibrations of Expansion and Integration

    Experience the soothing embrace of a Sound Bath, led by Mia Burlinson.

    A sacred practise using instruments such as crystal singing bowls, handpan, guitar, medicine drum and chimes accompanied with voice to produce harmonious sounds and frequencies. 

    These vibrations resonate within, allowing a state of balance and peace. Experience deep relaxation and rest after an expansive dance, offering a sanctuary of sound that nurtures the soul.

    About the Facilitators:

    Kevin Adams

    After significant life challenges, Kev decided to experience a 10 day silent meditation retreat in 2014 which opened him up to the power of the heart and mind. Meditation and Ecstatic Dance became pivotal practises to help Kev navigate through difficult mental, relationship and career struggles. Choosing to say goodbye to work that no longer served him and using the power of visualisation and aligned action, he attracted an opportunity where he helps yoga and wellbeing based studios grow. Kev also facilitates visualisation meditations for individuals and groups to expand awareness and empowerment. IG @kevinadams09
