A Biodanza One Day workshop: Theory and Practise of the Biodanza system 

In celebration of International Day of Biodanza 2017: This is a great opportunity to be part of a global celebration of Rolando Toro Araneda (born 19th April 1924) the founder of this unique practise of dance, movement, expression and creation who inspired over 100,000 (so far) people  around the world to dance with life.

About the workshop:

Life is generated, supported and maintained through primal instincts that regulate our physical, emotional and psychological health and wellbeing. The origin of what creates the basis of these life functions and the neurological pathways that inform our consciousness and experience are still debated among a myriad of belief systems.

The complexity of living systems and increasing technological development of our times have put a distance between our way of life and some of these primal life instincts that have always been a guide to our survival (health, vitality and wellbeing). But they do not exist to guide us simply with survival.

Our instincts and organic networks, that connect us as a living system (individually and as a group/species) are also a guide to the innate potentials of our own ‘technological’ development and evolution: potentials of our genetic diversity and richness that link us to the living system of the earth and the universal system beyond this planet.

When we dance with life, together, we open the deepest potentials of human evolution to awaken vitality, creativity, plenitude, rejuvenation, joy, health, wellbeing, fulfilment, altruism and solidarity – our potentials become possible through expression.

Biodanza is a practise that re-connects, supports and maintains our connection as living systems of the universe, as life itself. Joyful, harmonious, revitalising, integrative dances and simple movements activate these life sources on a deeper level. Because the movements are natural and instinctive, the original connections with life that start to flourish from the moment of conception, are re-awakened and enlivened through experience of the dance and the timeless memory of life in each of our cells.

This one day workshop will give each participant an opportunity to learn more about the theory of Biodanza and to experience the practise of the dance.

It is recommended to attend the introductory evening class on Thursday 27th April although it is possible to come to either or both the evening class and the day workshop.
