ANY-BODY CAN DO IT!
In last 13 years we had an opportunity to pass the knowledge and understanding of dance as educational and personal development playground for to more than 3000 participants and groups (dancers, actors, choreographers, heart entrepreneurs, students, professors, people with disabilities, movement lovers, managers, CEO’s … leaders ) in 23 different countries around the world and we can say with confidence that every-body can dance without exception. But not just that ever-body can dance, but also using embodied knowledge and tools from dance and contact improvisation for personal and social transformation.
We consider that Dance is a natural order of the universe. Through Dance you can expand your consciousness and open a space where Body, Mind, Emotions and Spirit can enter on same level. When you open enough through movement, the energy is activated. Energy is movement and Movement is energy. Dance is the movement of the energy through the body, expressing certain emotions, thoughts, states – and when they open, the energy starts to move strongly and quickly through it.
Your biochemistry starts strongly to be altered…the brain waves are altering…and the level of physical and mental consciousness increases greatly. You enter into the treasury of the common consciousness and draw directly from it essence. And when caught by your true nature you have access to potentials, that many people don’t in their conditional life. And when you do that – you only have to breath, moving from point A to point B, with acceptance, understanding, and sincerity.
