Dose of Pleasure: Raving and Dancing at a Safe Distance Tempelhofer Feld

Summer slowly awakens Berlin from the long winter sleep and many people miss the long nights with their friends in their favorite clubs. While many clubs now offer outdoor garden concepts, this may not be the perfect solution to delight and the passionate dancer among us.

It is not surprising that the amount of illegal raves in Hasenheide and in the forests surrounding the city has increased considerably in recent weeks. Many may not be comfortable with throwing themselves into a large crowd of strangers. Others can no longer suppress their desire to go out with music and dance. It’s a little twisted that something as natural as dancing together should be carried over to an unknown future. However, the pandemic is not over and the international evolution of the figures shows that the world is still in a fragile state.

Dose of Pleasure – A new meditation movement in Berlin

For me, I found a perfect solution to this dilemma. My dance teacher Alvin Collantes is a creature of the night who likes to go wild and party like a true Berlin spirit. He has developed a new dance method that mixes different styles into a unique experience. Her “Dose of Pleasure” session is an individual interpretation of Gaga (a contemporary dance style from Israel), sound healing and delirium that helps free your inner wild animal.

I have been in his lessons for over a year and during his forties, I was so happy that he offered his doses of pleasure via Direct. Now he has a cell phone system and brings his dancing sessions to Tempelhofer Feld. There he teaches a larger group with a safe distance so that no one will feel uncomfortable. The course does not require any type of dance preparation and is suitable for all kinds of levels of body and movement experience. The sessions sometimes feel like a big sexy rave and sometimes like an intense and powerful meditation. Try to go without expectations and I’m sure you will be overwhelmed.

How to participate

To visit its courses which take place almost every day at sunset, you must join a whatsapp group to stay informed of the exact location (which sometimes changes) and of weather forecast updates. You can also register on his Eventbrite page to get a place.

You should wear comfortable shoes and a casual dance outfit. But if you feel like it, you can also dress as you would for your favorite party. For me, “Dose of Pleasure” was exactly what the name promised. A little bit of joy that you can integrate into your daily life.
