What is Biodanza?
With music, dance and movement in group classes Biodanza supports out your innate potential to be healthy and well – to enjoy life, feel pleasure and to grow.
For some, Biodanza is simply fun, guided expressive movement with some social connection. For others Biodanza is a journey into a process of profound growth.
Whatever the case is for you, it only takes a single session of Biodanza to feel energised, restored and in a positive space. And with regular Biodanza you can expect to get closer to what you really want for your life.
“Biodanza is about learning to dance with life and rediscovering the pleasure of living.” Rolando Toro Araneda, creator of Biodanza.
Biodanza was created by Rolando Toro Araneda (1924-2010) a Chilean anthropologist, clinical psychologist and artist, who was nominated in 2001 for the Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution to humanity. “Biodanza finds its inspiration in the most primitive origins of the dance.” Rolando Toro Araneda
