Born in South America and embraced around the world, Biodanza is an uplifting fusion of music, dance, movement and social connection.
Biodanza cultivates positive inner states like joy, pleasure, enjoyment and optimism all by doing something simple that humans have been doing for thousands of years – dancing!
Tensions – emotional, family, economic and a life with little existential meaning affect our mood, our immune system, our entire organism.
Sharing moments of laughter, play and dancing help to counter these stresses.
Biodanza is like a concentrated bombardment of joy each week that leaves you feeling ready for whatever life brings.
The music, dances, exercises and social environment uplift and revitalise you and from this place it is easier to take steps towards what is really good for your life.
