Dance Lab presents the monthly Ecstatic Dance gathering with DJ Omar Aena at Race Brook Lodge. Omar Aena is a world-music DJ, community organizer and event producer of Iraqi descent, based in New York City, and the founder of Dance Lab, a Brooklyn-based collective that explores dance as a form of somatic therapy.

As a DJ, Omar mixes together traditional world music with electronic sounds, with a particular focus on songs from his middle-eastern heritage + hip hop from his upbringing in NYC. Listen to Omar’s DJ mixes on Soundcloud.

This workshop is open for everybody in all levels of experience. “This will be a safe and inclusive space,” the Lodge says, “welcoming people from all walks of life to freely express themselves through movement. Come with an open heart, wear comfortable clothing for movement and bring socks.T No dance experience is required, just come as you are.”

Doors open at 2:30 p.m., and the event starts at 3.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
