Creating Caring Communities: Moving Together – Ecstatic Dance

Creating Connection and Community with Movement

Lamara Heartwell, co-founder of Dance Hive

Katie Hendricks sat down with Lamara Heartwell, co-founder of Dance Hive, an ecstatic dance community in Santa Barbara, to talk about how this movement has brought healing and deep connection to her community. The worldwide movement of freeform dance is founded in principles and practices that create a rich environment for people of all ages and backgrounds to find presence and connection through movement. We invite you to watch the video and find or create a local moving community of your own.

If you’re local to Ojai, please make sure to watch the video down below of Gay and Katie with Elisa Rose, and click here to learn more about the Ojai Ecstatic Dance community.
