East Bay Community Dance w/Bonbon Spirit

  • Hosted by DJ DZ
  • Oakland, CA -

Dancers of the Bay Area,

This coming Tuesday, we are delighted to welcome for the first time to EBCD: Bonbon Spirit!

Bonbon Spirit (aka PJ Weinstein, formerly Baron von Spirit) is foremost a dancer at heart. Drawing on his own practice of ecstatic dance, 5Rhythms, Soul Motion, and contact improvisation for inspiration, he's a DJ, music remixer, and Event Producer in service to community.

He's known for his eclectic and wide-ranging musical taste, and even more so for bringing some of the latest cutting-edge Bass Music. He loves to mix electronic and organic beats, and depending upon the venue will play anything from angelic ambient to tribal crunk to uptempo electro. To each set he brings a rough palette of musical ideas—the final journey is created as a response to what he's feeling in communion with the field of dancers—​and always finds a way to integrate a few novel remixes of beloved classics.

Check him out :

Peter has DJ’d at 550+ ecstatic & conscious dances around the globe since 2010. He co-founded Ecstatic Dance Corvallis (OR), Ecstatic Dance Fairfax (CA), Amoeba Dance (OR), and has produced over two dozen Ecstatic Dance Immersion retreats at Breitenbush Hot Springs and Harbin Hot Springs.
