Trance Dancing
    #688562 - 06/19/02 05:10 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I am into it big time, anyone else wana share thier experiences or techniques? I myself find trance dancing the time when I am most "present' and at my most "here now" - and very rarely does the trance dance opportunity arise. Anyways, I find that trance dancing doesn't need to be all repetive fast psychedelic stuff though, a lot of old acid house (early rave), techno, and house is perfect for it, though goa certainly is psychedelic by nature and is not to be discounted. please share!

i've always felt it in my body, but i've never been able to let go and dance at any party i've been to. i've danced around my house when nobody was around... but that's just not the same.

I agree, i have done some trance dancing on my own in my room with a cd mix going but the energy is different, its not like it is at a big party or a "rave" dare I use the term, but part of that has to deal with collective energy and perceptions of actualy "loneliness" anyways. HAPPY DANCIN MISTER!

I can let my body dance only while on shrooms..It's very hard to let it go while sober..

I too feel too embarrased to let myself go fully in front of a crowd of people and just let my body flow. I can do it fine when I am by myself.. I think I am actually pretty good at making my body do crazy fluid movements.. but alas.. when it comes to doing it in front of others.. I get stuck.

i would say because your awareness is in the wrong place...
when you're sober you focus more on what you are doing, when you aren't you only focus on the music.

that's the secret of art and sex... you just need to be a channel for the energy.

I agree, if you feel so self conscious when you are sober, then acknowledge it, and do it anyways. Ever dance outside, in front of nature? Dancing in your room is completely different when all of nature is there to witness what you do. Just be honest about, honesty seems to parallel the freedom of movement within and about a person - if you move as you feel you honestly should, and you feel its something you should be doing, why be concerned with how others perceive it? let them perceive your dancing as they want, its their free will - but if trance dancing isn't a big deal to you then don't do it.

adam - ps
i think i sound almost like I am scolding, and I really am not scolding, I am trying to be as matter of fact as possible

I think I have a powerfull ego. I think too much at others. I danced sober twice as far as I can remember. I mean in a crowded area. I will go to several gestivals this summer. Maybe I can improve myself there as everyone will help me.

you get over the fear... theres no need to be self conscious when your dancing, it only makes your dancing shit..
it happens at the start of the night sometimes, or after a break 4 me, but by the end of th night its all good
unless you have a case of full blown everyone move back coz here i come styles dont worry ;] the others are usually feeling the same ...
i remember one night there was this guy in front of me and every part of his body had a move for every beat of the music, he was the music... this may sound cool but he looked like a homeless guy tap dancing on his tiptoes with an electric fence shoved up his overalls, pulsating to the music.... i make a point of not criticising other peoples dancing .. but this was hilarious, there was a small crowd gathered behind him, staring in disbelief, trying to emulate these fresh moves.... wicked, i wish i could see him again

I too feel too embarrased to let myself go fully in front of a crowd of people and just let my body flow.

I was getting down to some 70's & 80's funk & dance tunes on Friday night. I was really letting loose and having a ball. A group of 6 young women (25 yo) started to dance with me even though I already had a partner. They were shouting, chanting, and laughing. I got hot and took off my jacket and they were yelling for me to keep stripping. Afterwards, I realized that they were making fun of me. I wasn't phazed.

Near closing time, I had a hot Latina on my arm who found me to be quite sexy (and vice versa). I walked over to the table of young ladies and said, "I can't help but notice that you are all attractive and there are plenty of eligible men here, yet you are alone and have only danced with each other all night. Meanwhile, I have met someone while you were too busy poking fun (something you people know that I would never do - LOL!) and being uptight. Have a good night and grab some batteries on the way home."

The proof is in the pudding.

If you REALLY said that then I think you are one COOL dude!.......and ain't it funny how women are always(usually, lest I forget to whom I speak) a lot more freer with their inner intentionality when the guy has already been "spoken for"?

Well I don't seem to have a problem channeling the art or sex.. I guess I need to be less self conscious.

Well I'm going somewhere tonight with my girl... We'll see what happens.

I've been trance dancing since I was in 3rd grade...even before I knew it had a "label." All music is psychedelic by the way...Goa is just written to push the limits of both the listener and the dancer.

I fnd it so ironic that at a lot of raves I've been to people tend to make fun of people entering trances...that's why I only go to Goa parties any more...trance dancing is understood and encouraged in the Goa community.

I made extensive comments about this already in another post in this forum:

work like you don't need the money
love like you've never been hurt
dance like nobody is watching

incidentally, i was thinking about making my next electro album titled "last chance to pants trance" i was just being loopy though, i'd never do it, heheheh. i do love IDM (intelligent dance music) a la The Orb n' Autechre, exc... but no second rate rave DJ'ers... byuuuuuck. eheheheh, to each their own.

love n' blessings, cj

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

Postal: trance dancing is when the dancer allows herself or himself to enter into a trance via dancing. There are many types of trances you can enter and most are single-point mind types of trance. You lose contact with your external "reality" and only exist in "the moment." Hard to describe but easy to see when someone's in a trance.

Also, liquid dancing isn't necessarily trance dancing, but many trance dancers do liquid in order to get into a trance. Trance dancing can be a simple as standing in place and bobbing your body left and right to complex dance moves like liquiding. It's all about letting go of your senses and becoming one with the music.

Love & Light,

Boppity

That video of Eric isn't that bad...he really needs to work more on his hands though in my opinion. At times he has a beautiful control over the lines between his feet and upper body but then he just "freezes" as he concentrates on his handwork too much. I like the first few second of the video best...he should also slow down his moves just a tad to make them more fluid...

My friends Scott and Igor are the greatest liquid dancers I've ever seen...the human mind never ceases to amaze me when I witness good liquid dancers...even if they're not in a trance...it is beautiful indeed.

Love & Light,

Boppity
