Yoga Teacher Brings Ecstatic Dance to Elliott Heads – Bundaberg Now


David Chauncy The Local Man will be offering ecstatic dance workshops at Elliott Heads from the end of October.

Bundaberg’s qualified yoga teacher, David Chauncy, has used his passion for connecting mind and body to develop workshops focused on dance movement.

The local man will be offering ecstatic dance workshops at Elliott Heads from the end of October and said the dance form allows participants to freely express their emotions through movement.

David said the Ecstatic Dance had clear boundaries to protect personal space and was a drug and alcohol free program.

“Ecstatic dancing was made popular by American Gabrielle Roth who started 5Rhythms Dance,” he said.

“There are no choreographed steps to follow, it’s totally free form.

“The smallest movement can be as deep as the biggest movement, there is no need to push, no need to hold back, anything is welcome. “

Yoga teacher David Chauncy brings ecstatic dancing to the area.

David said he has been practicing ecstatic dancing since 2017 and recently became an accredited teacher.

“What I found in dancing was a return to the rhythm,” he said.

“Through this connection, I found myself with David when I was a young boy when he lost his connection with his heart and that beat.

“Through dancing, I experienced overwhelming moments of happiness, joy and excitement – collectively called ecstasy.”

David said that the ecstatic dance not only explored emotion, but also told a story, like most aspects of movement.

“Movement is a form of communication, the first,” he said.

“Someone walks into a room and before a word is spoken, their movement will describe the mood, the confidence, the state of being.

“It is difficult to simulate the movement, it is in our subtle body.”

David will host his first ecstatic dance workshop at Elliott Chiefs Room October 24.
