Here is what people are saying
An awesome place to find your spirit and stay healthy.
I can be myself there. Love the community! Love the music! Love the dance!
Favourite type of dance because you get to express yourself freely, uniquely & creatively as possible here in a wonderful environment.
It’s a powerful spiritual practice of understanding what you’re carrying/ storing in your body; figuring out what you are breaking through, what you’re yearning for; daring to be and be with yourself fully with love. That was the intention I set and with kindness I just let my body do whatever it needed to. By the end of it I felt in total union with my true self and gentle strength. In good company.
Wow!, went for the first time tonight and got lost in a beautiful journey of dance and meditation!. Definitely going back next week!. Thank you Ecstatic Dance Toronto!.
I love this friendly, inclusive community. Always a joy and inspiration to dance with this tribe! 💕
Toronto’s Ecstatic Dance is a magical place to let loose and and dance deeply from the inside. I always look forward to attending when I visit Canada. Thanks for making each session a sheer delight.
I have been going to Ecstatic Dance Toronto for a few years. Ecstatic Dance Toronto attracts people who are open, loving and accepting of each other. The space is alcohol, drug and cell phone free which encourages people to be fully present to better connect with each other. Dancing in silence helps me get out of my head and into my body. It is a space of non-judgement where I can explore how my body wants to move in creative ways following my intuition. After the dance is over I like to stay and socialize with people there, everyone is really friendly and approachable that I have met there. I have made 100s of friends there. I highly recommend it.
Always regenerating and rejuvenating.
Dancing is a miracle for the body and soul.
I love the atmosphere here. Great music and fun!

I have never danced Ecstatic / Freestyle dance before. Does this matter?
Absolutely not! No experience necessary for you to find yourself dancing freely like no one is watching or like everyone is watching. All you have to do is dance your dance, that’s it.
What kind of clothes should I wear?
Wear comfortable stretchy clothes that make you feel free, that you can sweat in and clothes that will move with you.

This is a practice that allows us to reconnect to every part of our body, including our feet! We dance with bare feet.

This is literally a dance for all ages and the bulk of our dancers range from their 20’s to well in their 50’s and beyond. Children are also welcome when accompanied by parents.

Just choose the event you would like to attend on this page and follow the directions to purchase your ticket. We have several online payment options available.
Is it ok if I arrive late to an online dance?
Yes of course you can join the dance at any time after the start but best to join us from the start so you get the most out of your dance.
I understand this is a drug & alcohol free dance practice. Why is that?
We tend to live such busy and distracted lives. We don’t give ourselves enough opportunity to fully drop into our own body. It is an amazing experience to do so, requiring no additives or fillers. This is the beauty, power, freedom and joy of our dance.
How will I know how to login and operate the online platform for the dance events?
Once you register, we will provide you with all of the instructions to login to the dance. As well we will give you inspiration for setting up your dance space and creating a peak audio experience.
