What we're about

Biodanza means the dance of life. It is a science-based process of human development. Meaningful movement to music is used to trigger integrative experiences that help us to develop our potentials and rediscover the joy of living. It's not easy to describe the process, you really have to come along and experience it for yourself!

It started in South America in the 1960s and it has now spread around the globe. There are no steps to learn and the music is infectious. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as each session is taken at your own pace.

Most facilitators hire a hall and offer sessions to the general public. However, Biodanza is also applied in educational, health and community care settings as an educational, therapeutic and/or socially engaged process.
