Biodanza – Movement for Africa

For some, Biodanza is simply fun, guided expressive movement that brings a sense of renewal and optimism; for others, Biodanza is a journey into a process of profound growth and personal change.
Dancing regularly increases self-awareness, restores health and vitality and facilitates personal growth and healing

Biodanza ….. the Dance of Life

Biodanza, meaning “The Dance of Life”, is an integrative system, a form of free-movement which uses dance and music to promote self-awareness, restore health and vitality, reconnect to purpose and realize the full capacity of human potential.

Its impact on the well being of individuals and groups is supported by scientific theory and research, and, due to its multidisciplinary nature, Biodanza’s reach and offering can extend into clinical, communal, educational, environmental and corporate spaces.

Personal Transformation Through Dance... Biodanza creates a space for personal transformation to happen, through the use of music, dance, and group interactions which foster connection.
Rolando Toro Araneda, the founder of Biodanza, realised that music is a universal language, and that dance has the capacity to harmonise and integrate the mind, body and soul. He also understood that people have an innate need to feel joy, be creative, connect and relate to others in an intimate way, free of bias, judgement and expectation.

Expanded Consciousness – Expressive Dance – Meaningful Encounter... During the course of our lives we may have experiences that either inhibit or enhance our ability to live our lives fully.
Biodanza is an enhancer, reawakening us to the fullness of life, enriching us with moments of bliss, and instilling in us the feeling of being a part of something extraordinary – a life worth living. However, the Biodanza experience is almost impossible to grasp cognitively… you will need to experience it, in order to truly understand its depth and full potential.

Biodanza - Connection With The Cosmic WholeBiodanza is an invitation to participate in a dance with the cosmos. The experience will open up a feeling of connection to all things and to the essence of the universe. The practice of Biodanza is deeply spiritual and humanising practice and attempts to re-create the lost unity between humanity and nature.

The Biocentric Principle, which is the fundamental organising principle of Biodanza, is to put Life at the centre. According to this principle, we observe and follow the way that Life organises itself, we conserve Life and actively support the realisation of the potential and evolution of Life. We come to see that the expression of Life is the purpose of all Life.
