Ecstatic Dance Bus Tours bring people together to share their love of dance, travel, connection, and adventure.
We've traveled more than 15,000 miles all over the U.S. Many describe their experience as something truly unique and "magical". Some have called it the trip of a lifetime. Are you ready to create the next chapter of magic with us?
Give yourself the gift of:
Our sweet ride... This is not your normal bus. It's a custom-built adventure coach operated by the legendary Green Tortoise company. In the comfort of our sweet ride, there are spaces to stretch out and relax or take a nap. A couple "booths" to play a game of cards or share snacks while you watch the world roll by. Couches and sleeping bunks complete the design so we all get just what we need to travel and feel good on the road. You'll be able to get personal space when you need it and connect with others when that feels right.

The emphasis on this trip is Nature and the Great Outdoors. And of course, each other. Forming a solid trust and appreciation for our dance bus troupe first and foremost, we will then connect with several Ecstatic Dance communities in the areas we visit. Sedona will host us for a special event featuring Porangui. When not in Sedona, we will dance in the wilderness, in parks, and public spaces. We have our own professional sound system for some booming dances wherever we go. Plus we have a super high quality (and VERY portable) Silent Disco headset system for dances just about anywhere we feel like moving...indoors or out!
