Biodanza means Dance of Life. It is a dance of heart and freedom from South America. It's a system that integrates music and movement; it also makes possible to establish an authentic relationship with yourself, with other people and with the environment. Biodanza creates experiences of intense awareness of being alive in the here-and-now.

“Love and humanity begin with touch…" Everything has a purpose in this great cosmic plan. Skin is part of this plan. We speak about the skin but the skin also speaks, my skin speaks, it says clearly, how I feel, how I live, eat, sleep and make love. According to its rigidity, thickness, elasticity, marks and scars it tells my story and  the story of my relationships. Skin has needs. Skin has limits...

It is not touch that makes the experience nutritious, but how to touch, the quality of contact. Caress is born of the willingness to offer and the desire to receive. It is born of the quality of an encounter, of the desire to put my tenderness, my passion.

“Nothing is meaningful except surrendering to Love. Do it.”  (Rumi)

The skin is what binds us and what separates us from the world. Everything that exists has a purpose integrated into the great wise plan of life. The skin is part of that mystical plan! If we have sensitive skin and not feathers or scales, it is because our sensitivity is part of Life's intelligence. Listen! The skin clearly tells me how you feel, how you live, how you love and how you are loved.

We want to Promote:

  • Understand Touch as a Bridge for Ecstasy
  • Walk the path from contact to caress
  • Learn how to give and receive feedback
  • Understand the physiology of touch and caress
  • Affective equalization between giving and receiving
  • Reveal myself in the space of intimacy
  • Experiment the Frontiers of touch in Affectivity, Sexuality, and Transcendence
  • Ability to put limits on what is toxic
  • Create Nutritional Bonds

“I know that touching was, still is and always will be the true Revolution” (Nikki Giovanni)

Celebrating life is a goal of Biodanza. It stimulates community bounds and makes establishing relationships easier, as well as helps participants regain joy and vitality to celebrate the sacredness of life. It makes a way to feel happy, healthy and more confident, with strengthened self-esteem, also improving the ability to make choices.

Biodanza is a delicate but deeply transforming work on consciousness which awakens for universal solidarity, based on working with the body, body movement and dancing.

  • Integrates body, mind, emotions and soul.
  • Arouses vitality, creativity, sensuality and emotionality.
  • Teaches openness, joy, building good relationships and expressing emotions.

Feeling the connection with your body, emotions and energy, makes the transformation occur. These experiences are called "vivencias". They allow access to our primal emotions and help with the most natural expression of true self to emerge through movement.

“Biodanza represents the primordial energy pattern of deep connection and freedom of expression, beauty, enthusiasm and passion. It lives through the original thirst that our species has of health, love, pleasure and well-being. It is translated by the impulse to dive deep into the world of sensations. It is guided by the compass that lives in our heart, connecting us with the need and the desire to give and receive love. It teaches us to recognize that love is an art, just as life.” (Cristiano Martins)

Biodanza is based on psychological and philosophical research, dance anthropology and traditional rituals. One of the teachers explains the origin of the word "biodanza" from the Greek bios meaning life, and from the Spanish danza which means dance.

Workshop is based on personal, direct experience - individually, in pairs, subgroups or in a group of all participants. There is music, movement and dance to enable the creation of harmony and closeness in interpersonal relations.

Rolando Toro Biodanza System is a method that works on every human being’s potential.

It reveals various possibilities and forms of expression to us. It is based on the positive resources of each of us, according to the author's method - the creator of the system, prof. Rolando Toro. Her father is a psychologist, anthropologist, poet and artist from Chile. And since the 1960s, system itself has been distributed in over 30 countries around the world as a method of personal development.

„A man doesn’t live to dance, but dances to live happier”

Biodanza draws our attention into building relationships and bonds between people through eye contact. An eye contact is considered as the fundamental base of a beautiful and meaningful communication without words. This also helps to open the heart, transform person's needs and desires and to be ready for new experiences.
