OTHER INFO:


Q: Are kids okay to join?

A: Yes! This is a safe space for anyone who is able to stand on their own two feet and dance! As long as they are aware and respectful of others' boundaries and respectful of the event then they are welcomed to join us!

Q: Is there anything to drink?

A: There are multiple water stations within the dance complex you can use. We recommend bringing a reusable bottle. Please note that all our ecstatic dances are sober, alcohol-free events

Q: What are parking options like?

A: There are two garages nearby:

Green St Garage at 260 Green St, Cambridge, MA 02139 and

Communal Parking Lot #6 at 65 Bishop Allen Dr, Cambridge, MA

Additionally there are usually a very small handful of 2 hour metered parkings spots along and perpendicular to Mass Ave. Public transit is another option as the Dance Complex is only a 1 minute walk from Central Station!

Q: Do you ever need a hand?

A: We generally can accept about 1 -2 volunteers who would like to help with setup / takedown / registration table in exchange for a free ticket to the event. Thanks in advance for your desire to help!

Q: What type of music can I expect?

A: That's a great question that will depend to an extent on the DJ. Within our pool of DJs, you will find different varieties of music that take you through a mountain of speeds, sounds, energies, and genres. Many of our DJs produce their own music so you can look them up and hear their produced sounds online! Please be aware most of the DJs within our community operate mostly within the realm of electronic dance music, however we do encourage artists to pull outside of EDM to help increase the breadth of their musical journeys.

Here's a good example of a recent set one of our DJs did:

Q: What else should I know?

A: Well, if you aren't familiar with ecstatic dance you should know a few things that we'll also cover in the opening introductions! For a full list of ecstatic dance guidelines and to explore even further into the history and breadth of ecstatic dance check out www.ecstaticdance.org

Please know that consent and respect are required when dancing with others. As one of the founding bodies of Heart Hive, we abide by the same code of conduct they do. Feel free to check it out HERE.

Look forward to seeing you soon!
