Inspired Dance in Houston
Queens night clubs and clubs in Manhattan may never be the same thanks to Ecstatic Dance in Houston. Ecstatic Dance is associated with globally emerging communities that promote sacred, conscious, unrestricted, and transformational dance events. These events promote authenticity, freedom, inspiration, vitality, and high levels of joy. We provide specialty and ongoing events including barefoot ballroom dance, community class instruction, Dance Evolution, and the exciting Earth Dance Houston. Every event is created to reflect an environment that is sacred and welcoming to all ages and dance experience levels. All events are free of drugs and alcohol, extraneous chatter, criticism, and shoes!
Trademark Dance Evolution
Sydney Samadhi Strahan is the mastermind behind the transformational dance practice known as Dance Evolution. Dance and nightlife enthusiasts in Houston have seen this dance evolve since 2003, and Dance Evolution has provided a reliable environment for dancers to express themselves with creative movements that uplift the body, mind, and spirit. Dance Evolution has become synonymous with openness and creativity. The magic that underscores Dance Evolution involves the unique combination of the facilitators, intention, music, and structure. The facilitators use these elements and incorporate the individuality of each dancer. Dance Evolution facilitators are dedicated to providing an inclusive, safe, and sacred environment for all.

Why We Love To Dance
People who dance have personal reasons that draw them to join and participate. Some dancers aspire to release their inhibitions in a spiritual and healthy way, some aim to reduce tension and stress in the mind and body, some move to express themselves without experiencing judgment or criticism, some dance for physical healing and to gain insight for overcoming life challenges, some dance to open their hearts and minds to love, some want to connect with other people in a safe place, some dance to learn about body language, some dance to achieve trance inducing states or to break through the matrix, some move to free themselves of restrictions and awaken the child within, some dance for celebration and the return of joy, some dance to experience meditative states and reach genuine parts of themselves, and some dance for the simple pleasure of exercising with positive, creative, and welcoming people. Our dance events are designed to unite attendees and create a feeling of sacredness and connectedness in a contemporary setting. We want dancing with us to feel like a global, tribal, and conscious experience. We want all of our dancers to open their minds to healing themselves, recognizing the best in the people around them, and contributing their individuality to the dance group. The component of sacred intentional space unifies our participants, and this is how such a diverse group of seekers find commonality and move toward greater inclusiveness and acceptance. Dancers have permission to experiment and practice exploring through creative physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional exercises. We notice a wonderful interaction between free dance movement and spiritual and emotional freedom, and dancers exhibit an abundance of self acceptance, love, and appreciation for their shared journey with humanity.
