What is Biodanza® ?

It literally means the dance of life. It’s a system of personal and group development. It comes from South America, created by Rolando Toro, a psychologist. It draws from many ancient tribal dances and practices.

What are the benefits of regular practice?

– Feeling alive and happy.
– Re-harmonizing your well-being.
– Meeting without masks or agenda.
– Nourishing each other in a safe place.
– Removing blocks in your body and mind to increase creative potential.
– States of bliss where you feel a deep communion with your soul and all that surrounds you.

What’s the main structure of a class?

The dances are guided by two facilitators. There are rhythmic dances for physical well-being and vitality in the first part of the class, and slow exercises which induce relaxation in the second half.

What kind of music is played?

Enjoy a vibrant mix of uplifting World music, from Tribal drums, Jazz, Latin, hip-swaying Samba to soothing Classical.
