Biodanza

A powerful body-based coaching system with profound effects on reducing stress and enhancing a sense of wellbeing that gives rise to the creation of deeper connections to oneself, intimacy and empathy with others and the world around us.

Dance is a deep movement arising from the most unfathomable regions in a human being.  It is the movement of life, biological rhythm, heartbeat, breath, it is an impulse to connect with the species, it is a movement of intimacy.  
— Professor Rolando Toro

What is Biodanza? 

The very nature of its system makes it difficult to grasp cognitively. 

It is a safe space to explore your own organic dance form, to become aware and continue to experience your own unique creative expression, through a group connection.  There are no steps to learn, there is just the music, your movement, the group and some gentle guidance.

 Biodanza creates opportunities for personal and group transformation like no other system I know of.

An extraordinary workshop that worked on many levels. At times I felt the vibration of energy as it shifted and moved to the music. My emotions felt liberated from being incarcerated into a societal stereotype of ‘normality’. I felt expansion, an awakening, a natural rhythm with the flow of life. A beautifully constructed workshop that blended the diversity of the group with Sue James’s vibrant essence. Afterwards, I felt as if I’d been bathed in light and floated home!

What happens in a Biodanza session?

Biodanza needs to be experienced-to be lived. It is in the living of it that we can embrace its full meaning.

The session offers something called a 'Vivencia' (a lived moment), which lasts for approximately one and a half hours, the body becomes our language and is the heart of our practice. It helps us to access deeper parts of ourselves as we are guided through a sequence of movements. With the medium of rhythm and music our own organic form of dance is evoked,  creating the space for our true essence to emerge.  This essence connects to the heart of who we are and in turn this transforms who we are in the world.
