“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anaïs Nin
Let Biodanza help you embrace the potential within
so that you can shape your life how you want it to flower.
WHAT IS THE PRACTICE OF BIODANZA?
Biodanza for all
To practice Biodanza you do not need to know how to dance or be able to move well because it is not a dance but a journey of personal growth that deepens its effects on the mind, body, spirit using music and movement. Each exercise of Biodanza has been designed with the goal of making us regain our natural ability to discover ourselves intact, soft, loose and in constant communication with life. Each session of Biodanza can very easily become a discovery of the natural beauty of your movements releasing tension and creating encounters with others.
It is usually a structured and continuous period of 10 months out of the year, with classes lasting about two hours, weekly or at least every two weeks. The weekly course is characterized by progressivity of the Rolando Toro System, by the presence of a consistent group, and along a path woven by the facilitator according to the group at hand.
The Seminar of Biodanza, otherwise known as “workshop”, is a more in depth proposal of Biodanza. Normally it lasts for a minimum of two sessions and a maximum of five, from one to three days. Can be a deepening of themes discussed during the course of Biodanza weekly, or an introduction to the “Dance of Life” for groups of participants who come for the first time experience of Biodanza.
The Biocentric School of Education
The Personal Development/Training School is represented by a path of stages – with vivencial and theoretical content – structured on the basis of precise indications of teaching that allows the student participant to acquire the title of Biodanza Teacher after a three year course, recognized by the International Biocentric Foundation , custodian of the methodology of Biodanza. written by Prof. Rolando Toro.

As an icebreaker and a quick way to break down the barriers so typical in the first days of a team building session, Biodanza has few competitors. Non-verbal, fun and interactive it goes to the heart of your team and sets the stage for cooperation and creativity by engendering listening and feedback skills. Done in groups from 10 to 100+, this creative movement system will put a spark into your event!
In fact, employees find their personal communication skills increase significantly with regular Biodanza. Over 70% of communication is non-verbal. But where can you learn these skills? Biodanza is one of the few places where non-verbal communication skills are practised and improved weekly. It essentially increases that non-quantifiable quality – personal presence.
If you would like to have a team building exercise done at your company or desire improved communication among your staff, please email Michelle with your details for an appointment so that a discussion of your exact needs can be planned and implemented.

KIDS/FAMILY BIODANZA with Michelle
Get your children up and moving! Children need to be creative. With Biocentric games and dances, your child will experience the liberation of creating his/her own reality. We dance, we play, we have fun on our adventures “to the beach” or “on safari”. We learn to communicate with others through reciprocity and understanding. We develop our social skills.
Here is what I offer:
