The Classes / Vivencias / Workshops
These are guided by a trained facilitator who has prepared a journey of various stages using movement with wonderful inspiring music, creating a safe space to express yourself. to simple rhythms and melodies of Latin music and wonderfully varied world music. We leave the classes feeling a greater than usual sense of joy and well-being. The adult classes are open to people of all ages and fitness levels, as we dance within our own possibilities. Biodanza is something we learn almost by osmosis, without the challenge of learning steps. The music gives the inspiration to move, to dance, as we learn to let go of the ego and relax into natural, organic movements! It has many Brazilian rhythms and is specially chosen for each dance to inspire your movements.
Please bring a bottle of water, an open mind and loose, comfortable casual clothes. We usually dance in bare feet, but soft indoor shoes are acceptable. Biodanza is impossible to describe, just come and experience it! The classes usually last either 90 minutes or two hours.
The classes for beginners cover exercises of motor integration, learning how to liberate your movements, developing rhythmic capacities and beginning to dissolve chronic tensions. The second part of each session will focus on slower paced "body flow" practices leading to a sense of greater well-being. So you are invited to increase your motor skills in order to express yourself more and more fully when dancing, so that the music dances you! There is no show, no choreography, it is a dance to feel alive.
