Jo Caron will teach Ecstatic Dance at Volcano Art Center’s Hale Ho‘omana  on Friday, March 25, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Caron is a certified Kripalu Yoga teacher and longtime DJ at Kalani’s Ecstatic Dance.

She assisted Gabrielle Roth at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts and participated in many of his programs.

Jonathan Sudler, art director at Naluco will create an ecstatic ambiance for the event.

Ecstatic Dance unearths a freestyle movement vocabulary rooted in unexpected, fresh ways of moving—visceral and highly personal. It reveals ways to creatively express emotions and what might be present and maybe unresolved in our psyche.

The music gradually moving from fluid to linear and rhythmic, to joyful and to finally peaceful and integrating, leads the way, offering a means to let the body freely and safely express the journey of the soul.

They say that a picture tells a thousand words. One deep dance tells millions!

In Ecstatic Dance you’ll discover a dynamic way to both workout and meditate all in the same breath.


Ecstatic Dance is a movement meditation as a way to “know thyself and bring forth harmony, peace, kindness and compassion in our lives.”

“Ecstatic Dance is a wonderful tool to expand our world, our hearts, our consciousness and our love for all living beings,” said Caron.

“Dance can help us find our own expression of ‘Oneness’ and in our challenging times, our own contribution to help save the world,” she added.

The cost is $15 or $20 at the door.

The Volcano Art Center is a non-profit educational organization created in 1974 to promote, develop, and perpetuate the artistic and cultural heritage of Hawai‘i’s people and environment through activities in the visual, literary, and performing arts.
