September 30, 2023, @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm HST
Our ecstatic dancers have shared the following experiences after dancing:
“I feel like I can really just be me.”
“I thought I was tired but I discovered new energy.”
“I revisited a memory and got a new perspective.”
“I love just listening to the music. It’s an experience I couldn’t create for myself.”

Guest leader, Miku Lenentine
Tiered Pricing $20-$25-$30
Come 30 minutes early, at 4:30pm, for warm up instruction and practice with techniques from contact improvisation and other tools to enhance your dance.
The dance begins at 5:00 pm with a 90 minute curated musical journey. Create your own experience of body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Our dance themes are connected to earth-based celebrations following the Wheel of the Year. The session ends with a brief closing meditation.
“A mindful dance journey begins with a soundscape of no beats. Time to find yourself in the space, as rhythms subtly transition. You will find many moving feet, the grooves and the energy building. With house music, the high energy tempo spaces go on dropping out into the deep power of words or funky motion. Maybe a slowly wandering song outro of no beats and just moments to vibe in stillness.” – DJ Kaleo
Cultivate your authentic life force energy with a free-form dance experience! Let the deeply engaging music get you out of your head, releasing into movement-creativity. Enhance your physical conditioning, self-healing, true listening and emotional self-awareness.
A closing circle after the class, always optional, gives you the chance to reflect on your experience and connect with this conscious dance community. Our ecstatic dancers have shared the following experiences after dancing.
Miku is deeply passionate about living in harmony with the self, others and all beings. She truly believes that each one of us contains the seeds of wisdom for the universe and the true purpose of being a teacher is to help guide each person to access the wisdom they already hold within themselves.
An experienced meditation practitioner and circle facilitator, Miku was raised in a mindfulness tradition and has trained with Dr. Eric Carroll at the Center for Vibrant Living for the past 10 years. She has guided weekly meditation, movement, and community dialogue circles since 2013 and facilitated a number of workshops in the greater Seattle area over the years most recently including Soulshine, Songaia, and Star Community. She has also presented mindfulness, yoga, and movement offerings at festivals and gatherings such as Beloved, Flowstate and the Northwest Permaculture Convergence.
Miku is delighted to have moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, which she finds strangely similar to her birthplace, Alaska.
