What we're about

We are a community of conscious dance lovers from all walks of life in Cape Town. What we have in common is our love of music, our passion for dance and a reverence for the healing power of movement and the deep connections that can be achieved through non-verbal communication and being fully immersed in the moment. Conscious dance is usually guided by a facilitator who sets an intention for the movement. Conscious dance is also known as "intentional dance". This is because the dancers enter the dance floor with a sense of intention. Their specific intentions may include processing personal issues, entering a state of meditation or regression, or expressing themselves authentically and creatively. Regardless of the terms used, a conscious dancer is frequently in pursuit of a deeper awareness of one's self, and others on the dance floor.

At the moment we have several regular events in the form of Biodanza classes. Biodanza is a form of conscious dance and a very powerful tool for personal transformation, helping you reach your full potential. It's also a lot of fun and a way of rediscovering the joy of living. No specific dance skills or experience is required and there are no steps to learn. It's a great way to meet and interact with like-minded people. It's also a lovely way to spend quality time with your partner or friends. Anyone 18 years and older welcome. This is a safe space in which you can connect with yourself and others, suitable for anyone that loves to move and express themselves freely. We also connect to the divine of our understanding and all of life. There are different levels of classes, namely beginners (open to all adults) and intermediate/deepening (for more experienced dancers, normally closed to newcomers). We also offer various workshops or retreats during the year.

Other specific or weekly events will be created as the need arises.

Biodanza Rondebosch by Move It! Celebrating Year-end and 500 events!

Our last 'in person' class for the year! We'll have a bring and share afterwards. Let's wish 2020 a hearty bon voyage! Also, since 2016, according to Meetup, I have now personally hosted more than 500 events! This number does not include my workshops with NGO's and rehab centres, nor the dance classes during 2015. Some great reasons to celebrate and a great opportunity to meet some new friends! Come get together with other like-minded people, have fun, de-stress, get inspired, energised and much more – simply the best way to start the week! We leave the day behind, give the mind a break and just move! Translated, Biodanza means "The Dance of Life". It’s a very powerful form of conscious dance which helps us to experience the joy of living through music and movement. The class follows a tried and trusted formula which is firmly rooted in science. Then we add some art and love to the mix for a truly memorable and moving experience! Each class is carefully designed according to a specific theme or intention, selecting the most exquisite and appropriate music. The space is held by a highly qualified and experienced facilitator, enabling you to let go and dance with whatever arises for you in that moment. Soon this becomes a safe space for your weekly practice, where you can relax and feel free to be your authentic self and bring your own, unique self-expression. A place where you are invited to be mindful and connect with yourself in the here-and-now on ever-deepening levels. Attending a regular class helps you transform yourself and your life. All that is required of you is to show up, be real and participate as fully as you are able to while still practising self-care. Over time most dancers are motivated to live more intentionally and consciously and actively start creating their own lives. They begin to live and even thrive... instead of merely existing. EVERYONE over 18 welcome - singles or couples, no previous dance experience or partner required, no right or wrong way and no steps to learn. We have a beautiful venue with a sprung wooden floor that's kind to your body and plenty of safe parking. Come join us! You are guaranteed to feel better afterwards! N.B. Please note all the necessary precautions will be taken to ensure your safety in line with the Covid guidelines. Contact Annelize for more information at [masked] or[masked] ** Details *** Wear comfortable (layered) clothes you can move in freely and bring a sweat towel, if required. We dance barefoot. Where: Erin Hall, Erin Road, Rondebosch https://goo.gl/maps/V9xDMhvHKDq Time: The class starts at 19h00 and ends around 20h30. Please arrive earlier. R120 per class + R10 for caretaker/car guard.

We have a lovely community of conscious dancers who get together every week to dance and share via Zoom.

The journey is intuitively and expertly created with carefully selected music to calm the nervous system, help you rediscover the joy of living, warm your heart and help you connect to your higher self, the divine and all of life. So much more than dancing to a playlist! N.B. Kindly RSVP at least a day before and contact me via message here or [masked] to get bank details. Zoom link will be sent on receipt of pop. The room will open at 18:45, to allow time for you to check your setup if you're new (Zoom tips available on request). Please arrive latest 18:55 to settle in and say hi to everyone.
