Welcome to Ecstatic Dance BERN

A community gathering for people who love to dance.

Join us and enjoy a safe space to dance without talking, drinking and the nightclub vibe. This is about getting great exercise, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and others in vibrant health.

Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance and the fearlessness with which others move gives newbies permission and courage to dance without inhibition.

of each month.


What to Expect

1st 15 Minutes (09:45-10:00):  Individual Warm-Up

Next 90 Minutes (10:00-11:30):  Short opening circle followed by free-style dance and short closing circle.

Ecstatic Dance Bern’s Sun•Day Dance is 90 minutes of intergenerational (family-kid-friendly) free-style dance to a varied mix of music: pop, world, electronica, alternative & punk, hip-hop, new age and traditional, among others.


Our Sun•Day Dance is conceived as a journey, namely: ‘The Hero’s Journey’.

Every dance is an opportunity for a new adventure, time to cross barriers and enter a realm of new possibilities, meet new and old friends, JUST BE with WHATEVER is moving you at the moment, experience transformation, joy, a coming to yourself and others and return to stillness.

You are free to dance this journey alone and also with any others on the dance floor who signal a willingness to make you part of their Sun*Day Dance. We create a space in which everyone feels welcome and safe and free to dance any way they like to whatever music happens to be playing at any moment.

Adventure awaits. Come and dance!

    Co-Founder and DJ

    Co-founder, Robb Correll, gave his first dance recital when he was 4 years old and dance has been his easiest access to joy ever since. After studying classical vocal performance in the USA, he migrated to Switzerland where he has lived ever since, working as a vocal performance coach, choir director, theater director, and university lecturer in learning design. Together with his wife and co-founder of Ecstatic Dance Bern, Judith Meuwly Correll, he founded the private school Sesam, an arts integrated school dedicated to the full development of every young person’s creativity and self-expression. The school is now a place of growth and development for over 100 young people, ages 4 to 17. Conscious movement, especially 5-Rhythms, Open Floor and Medicine Dance has been a staple of Robb’s life for over 15 years, a fact that eventually led to the initiation of Ecstatic Dance Bern.

    Co-Founder and DJ

    Judith Meuwly Correll is cofounder and director of the Tagesschule Sesam: an arts integrated school committed to promote creativity and selfexpression.
    The first time Judith Meuwly Correll was introduced to the conscious movement world was 15 years ago in a 5-rhythm workshop Robb, her husband, invited her to. She stubbornly stayed in the very corner of the room for the whole first day. The second day she ventured into the middle of the dance floor and discovered the joy in giving up thinking about what other people are doing or thinking. Dance has become an important re-sourcing practice ever since – a chance to get out of her mind and into her body. She is excited about providing a place for other people to come and nurture themselves in whichever way is right for them: be it by dancing full out in the middle of the dancefloor, by moving gently in a corner or by expressing themselves on paper either by writing or painting.
