Every Sunday morning at 10am at Kalani resort there is an event called the Ecstasy Dance. An eclectic selection of dance music is played for the 100 or so attendees, and the cost is a donation of whatever people can afford – generally $5 or $10.

We had heard about this event, and figured we’d check it out as yet another community event that can connect us with others, and to give us a chance to let loose and have some fun dancing too!

Kalani is on a single-lane, paved road right on the ocean. We didn’t get much of a chance to tour the property itself, but the artistic space where the dance is held is a large, airy 20ft high canvas-ceiling structure with lots of character. The floor is beautiful smooth pine, and bare feet or soft shoes are required. Chairs line the walls, and a beautiful view of lush palm trees with ocean just beyond is a sunny Sunday morning sight to behold.

The dance has a few rules: First and foremost – No Talking. It is viewed as a distraction for other dancers who just want to experience the music and not be disturbed. The other rules are pretty standard – No drugs and alcohol, etc. Interestingly before entering the space you are required to sign a waiver in case a particularly enthusiastic (or uncoordinated) dancer should poke you in the eye or otherwise cause bodily harm!
