Dancing to live music is really special, especially when everyone dances. Of course this is a dance studio scene and not a club scene so everyone is there to dance. Which makes finding people of like minds quite easy. Finding people of like steps is another matter, this is after all freestyle, and this slow to medium tempo music really brings out all the moves from Acro-Yoga to Ballet and Modern to Barefoot Boogieing.
A lucky find for those who love to dance on Thursday nights. Plenty of safe parking in the neighborhood and right above the Broadway and 19th Bart station. The cost is as low as $10 if you buy 20 tickets on line or at the door, or... almost as economical is 10 tickets for $110. This makes entertainment at this level quite affordable for everyone.
Never been to a Thursday night before? It is waaay different than any dance night here, Marin, or SF. One could almost say “it’s precious”.
Is it like Ecstatic Dance on Wednesday or Sunday? A simple “no” can be said. It is simply called Ecstatic Dance “LIVE!” with the accent on “LIVE!” Credit should be given to the creator of this music scene Tyler Blank. It takes a lot of “love of music, movement and dance” to even think this could be done. It needs more people, so if you’re tired of jumping up and down in the same personal space of other dance venues, give this one a try. You might be surprised you can fly given the right space, music, and other flying dancers support.
