This New Years Eve we gather as tribe to dance across the threshold into a new year and a new decade! This is an all-ages, community gathering of connection, dance, ceremony and music to honour and celebrate the closing of 2019 and the birth of 2020.
In the beating heart of Bristol, within our beautiful dance church, let's connect within and then join together to ignite visions, prayers and intentions at this incredible time of life.
You are invited to acknowledge, honour and release the year of 2019. Then through dance, movement and sound you are invited to ignite visions and set clear intentions, to align self with full awareness and an open heart for 2020, a new decade and a new paradigm.
Dance to healing depths and ecstatic heights for a night of illumination and celebration. We will dance to remember what is meaningful, feel the power of unity and feel the simple sweetness of belonging to a humanity that celebrates this miracle of life.
Our line-up of resident and guest artists are offering a high vibration celebration to support this magnificent gathering. The evening will consist of heart-expanding circle songs, DJ sets, live music, a shamanic Ecstatic Dance journey, prayers, intention setting, an acoustic sound bath, high vibe food and drinks, massage and more...

This event holds the essence of Ecstatic Dance. Ecstatic Dance is free-form dance. It’s a movement meditation which brings together awareness of mind, body, heart and soul through dance, movement and expression.
We will use the following guidelines to create a safe, held and sacred space where we can authentically connect with ourselves and each other through trust and heart-connection:
- the dance floor is a non-verbal space
- this is a drug and alcohol-free space
- no shoes in the dance space (unless needed for health reasons)
- have mindful presence of self and others
- respect boundaries of self and others
