Testimonials

Biodanza changed me and my life. Dance had always been humiliating for me. But from my very first class, I knew this was where I needed to be... I realised that I could explore my movements and emotions in a safe space.
Patrick

Biodanza is an integrative, progressive vibrant process, that gets into every cell ... It’s amazing. And it’s based on life. It is changing my life.
Mariela

Before the Biodanza session I was feeling defeated, exhausted and angry, but the session opened my eyes to a whole new way of expression myself. I now feel empowered, free and proud.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What can I expect in a Biodanza class?

Every Biodanza class is different. Joining a class means you get to go through a carefully designed progression of dances especially created for your group.

A session is usually around 1.5-2 hours. The session is delivered in a group, by an accredited facilitator (or facilitator under supervision). 

The beginning of the session includes a time for questions and sharing, and a brief introduction to the session by the facilitator. 

Each session has a unique theme and purpose with invitations to move to music. There are particular invitations of vital dances, motor integration dances, games, fluidity movements, generative postures, and some inner reflective dances as well as many more.

Can I do Biodanza on my own?

Biodanza is always offered in a group setting. You are welcome to bring friends with you, or come by yourself. It’s a key feature of the method to offer a dynamic, social space for fun and interaction with others that develops our capacity to appreciate diversity and connect authentically in feedback.

How does a session of Biodanza work?

There are 3 parts to a weekly session:

  • an optional verbal sharing by participants about their previous session and time for any questions;
  • a brief introduction by the facilitator of the week's theme;
  • an hour plus of invitations to dance flowing from active and rhythmic dances to slower and more melodic.

The facilitator will often demonstrate their version of the dance before inviting participants to move and dance as they feel - expressing through their own movement. 

Who can do Biodanza?

Biodanza sessions are suitable for everyone, regardless of age or ability. You don’t have to be able to dance or have a certain level of fitness or co-ordination to do Biodanza. You are always encouraged to move in a way that is comfortable for you.

What music is used?

We play a wide variety of music encompassing various styles and beautiful tracks from all over the world from Rock to African, Jazz to Ethnic, Latin to Classical, etc.

The music in Biodanza is specific for each dance and is very carefully chosen by a Board of didacts around the world. Each piece has been researched to support invoke the particular vivencia invited by particular dances.

I am quite a shy person, can I do Biodanza?

Yes! Many people who do Biodanza may feel a bit shy at first but the more you do Biodanza, the more your confidence in yourself will have a chance to develop.

The invitation in Biodanza is for people to show up as they are and express themselves authentically, as they feel in the moment.

The sessions are intended to be a safe and encouraging environment for you to find your sense of inner joy, ease and confidence.
