2019 Session Description

Biodanza
Dance me to the edge

For adults (teens welcome) • 90 minutes
Category: Body/Mind
Friday 1:30pm • Centennial Auditorium
Time and location subject to change (what isn't?)

Some journeys towards the edge require effort, determination and mental focus. But sometimes, an alternative backroad is also available: one which gradually flows like a river, circumventing obstacles with fluidity. When we harmonize what we think, what we feel and what we do, we experience a kind of enjoyment that nourishes a meaningful movement and heightens our momentum. Biodanza’s invitation is to organically expand your comfort zone towards the edge, giving it another dimension.

In this session you will experiment with joyful exercises on carefully selected pieces of music. Movement, music and interactions with others are the key to allow authentic movement and heartfelt emotion to happen, providing the experience of feeling alive in the here-and-now beyond effort and mental projections.

Biodanza may surprise you as a highly liberating activity and a transformative practice. Dancing skills are not necessary. Comfortable clothing is advised.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Experience fluidity in movement;
  • Awake the pleasure of moving and stimulate joy;
  • Vitalize non-verbal communication and expression;
