Ecstatic Dance Summer Retreats
Embercombe, Devon, UK
London’s Open Air dance! Our mission is to create a safe, sacred space for people to come and express themselves through movement—regardless of age, gender, background or social status. We aim to make Ecstatic Dance accessible to everyone. We believe dancing is a form of therapy which can help us connect to ourselves and to others. We embrace inclusivity, freedom of expression, openness and positivity. Come and dance with us!
Founder, Ceremony Leader & DJ
French-Canadian by birth and Londoner by adoption, Renée is a passion-led serial entrepreneur. She started businesses in the fashion and food industry before founding Ecstatic Dance UK. After encountering Buddhism and establishing a daily meditation practice, she discovered conscious dancing in 2015 through 5 Rhythms. She’s a graduate from the Ecstatic Dance International Leadership and recently started DJing. Her vision is to make Ecstatic Dance more accessible and mainstream by hosting welcoming and inclusive events that appeal to a wider audience.
Rebecca is probably the greatest conscious dance enthusiast in town. If you’re a regular at Morning Gloryville, Rise and Shine, Daybreaker or Ecstatic Shamanic you’ll recognise her contagious smile and dashing outfits.
Hrvoje is a dedicated yogi and meditator, as well as one of the most thoughtful person we know. You will be greeted with one of the warmest smiles.
Alexandra is our talented altar artist.
Dani is a conscious dancer and life lover.
Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, OSARA (Steve Anderson) discovered conscious dance in 2014 and began producing events and DJ’ing shortly after. He has very quickly built himself a name and has played for some of the most renowned conscious & wellness organisations in the UK, including Buddhafield, Colourfest, Spirit Fest UK., Movement Medicine and Pollen Tribe.
Passionate about playing music from all over the world, old and new, along with her passion to get everyone dancing, Sophie naturally knows how to raise the vibration of any dance floor. She has played as Ecstatic Dance and Dancing Freedom events around the UK and Europe. She draws upon soulful dance music spanning the genres of Deep House, Electro House, Melodic House and Trance (the list goes on).
Cardiff-born, London-based Benjy Kirk started dreaming about becoming a DJ as a mere 10-year-old: “On weekends my best friend and I would transform my living-room into an imaginary warehouse and hold pretend raves for hours on end.” After a good few years of hardcore clubbing, he fell into the conscious dance scene and found his tribe. He has since then been found playing at Morning Gloryville, Club Soda UK and Rumble festival, amongst others. He takes his influences mainly from dance and world music with a particular taste for Latin and African rhythms. With an aim to arouse surprise and delight, we’re in for a unique ecstatic ride!
DJ and General Joy Ambassador for the world, Devon-based Pixi Pete started out as a Bedroom DJ on traditional turntables before finding his feet on digital controllers. Mixing in live drumming with world-class beats, he is sure to bring life to any party. He holds space for Dance Medicine in Glastonbury and is always a festival favourite. He describes his style as a ‘unique journey through space, time and genres to give you something new and exciting, as well as something old and nostalgic. And be prepared for a surprise…’
A former club night promoter and producer at BBC Radio, Isza has been bathing in the music industry ever since she started working. She got into conscious dancing following a need to reconnect with her roots. Led by the universe and flow, she quickly found herself holding sessions at festivals and retreats in the UK and abroad. She’s also a Movement Medicine teacher and holds cacao ceremonies around the world.
