History of Ecstatic Dance

Ecstatic Dance as we know it began in the year 2000 AD, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Little did we know that this would inspire a movement, a culture, and a community, that would spread across the world.

Ecstatic Dance combines the Freedom of a DJ’d Festival Experience with the Awareness of a Conscious Dance Practice.

For many years, it was common for most Conscious Dance Communities to use live and acoustic music, and many of them were not quite yet ready to embrace the electronic wave.  At that time, attempting this meant mixing two long/boring songs together, and subwoofers were needed in order to feel the beat. Above all, there was still a lack of willingness of the dancers to accept this new “techno” sound.

But this all changed in 2000, with the help of Max Fathom. Coming from his pre-existing Conscious Dance community in Austin, Texas, Max was on his way to dance in Hawaii when he decided to make a stop-over at Burning Man. Here, he fell in love with this new Electronic Music, and set about to blend the two. When he arrived at Kalani, on the big island of Hawaii, Max found a dance gathering run by Bodhi Tara using mixtapes for their soundtrack. Upon Bodhi’s departure from Hawaii, Max was asked to organise a new dance in it’s place. Little did he know that this decision would change the course of Conscious Dance Culture forever.

Ecstatic Dance was born at Kalani-Honua, just a few miles away from the most active Volcano in the World (Pele), on the cliffside of a wild wave-crashing beach, in the middle of the largest ocean on the planet. The atmosphere of ED’s birthplace was wild, hot, humid, and Ecstatic, and to this day, has carried this essence with it across the globe!

Over the next 8 years, a new kind of “Ecstatic Dance” was brought to the world.  And with the help of hundreds of Space Holders, Facilitators, & DJs, (and a special thanks to Elizabeth Betwixt), the community has continued to grow and blossom ever since.

In 2008 Max and Elizabeth left Hawaii in order to pursue other dreams, but not before handing the torch of Ecstatic Dance to Tyler Blank & his friend DC. Their next step was to ask for permission to begin an Ecstatic Dance in Oakland, California, across the Bay from San Francisco.  They proceeded to put in years of hard work and dedication and eventually created not only a website, graphics, and marketing materials, and decided to keep Ecstatic Dance free from Trademarks & Official Trainings & Franchising.  Tyler insisted on keeping Ecstatic Dance as an Open Source Dance Technology that Anyone Anywhere could Dance in a Safe & Sacred Space with the simple guidelines for our Container.  Thus, Ecstatic Dances began springing up in communities around in the world..!
