What is Dance Walking?
Dance Walking is an art of self expression where we let our soul and body move us freely to music whilst dancing and walking through beautiful parts of London.
It's about being courageous, stepping into your light, freeing yourself and by doing so inspiring others to shine and express themselves freely as well.
How it all started:
We started Dance Walking in summer 2012 after seeing this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9cwBK6Ijxw) from Ben Aaron who found a guy dance walking on the pedestrian walk in NY. When we saw this video, we also got inspired and wanted to take dance walking to the next level by getting groups together and dance walk through London listening to the same music.
The idea behind Dance Walking is about letting go of fear, self judgment and inhibitions, having fun and spreading the love... and did we mention it's so much FUN!
We find dance walking beneficial if you
• are looking for a way to overcome your fears and inhibitions
• like to feel more comfortable in public
• look for a way to express more joy in life
• love dancing
• love meeting new people
• love exploring London
• love spreading love
