Biodanza, meaning to dance with life, is a fusion of music, movement and emotion. It is a scientifically proven method of personal development aimed at raising your capacity to communicate, to improve the quality of your relationships and your sense of well being and happiness.
“Have you ever danced until you flew? Danced so hard, so fast, so freely that you reach a level of overwhelming, ecstatic joy? If you haven’t you should – it can change your life.”
Mike Aldridge, Ecstasy through Dance, Namaste, Vol 9
Simple and Direct
It works by opening people’s sense of joy, self esteem and self confidence. It’s simple, direct and immediate. Ten minutes into a class, people have already found their sense of inner joy - a joy similar to that of a two year old - confident, strong and from the heart. It works with this joy and with regular classes, this grows and strengthens. [ Read "Your First Class - What to Expect" ]
This sense of joy and self-confidence carries over into people’s daily lives. Over time, people find that life becomes more joyful. People start reaching for what feeds them in life and begin to change those things that are less positive.
Who can benefit?
All types of people of all ages can benefit. Single, married, or stressed executives and not forgetting children too. Companies have found that it assists in team building. Everyone can benefit from the direct communication from the heart that is the essence of Biodanza.

The benefits of a Biodanza class are that you will leave feeling happy, relaxed and in communication with people again. There is also a major biochemical and neurological rebalancing happening in the body – all towards a sense of well-being. For many people, these changes progressively lead towards profound changes in their lives. (Read more - Scientific Information).
What you do with these benefits is, of course, up to you and your current life situation. But generally people find their stress levels reduce, their communication improves and their relationships just get better. Discover the Seven Powers of Biodanza.
“Sure you're stressed, who isn’t? A Biodanza class might be just what you need to bring some fun back into the mix. …. The Verdict: Totally rocks! Many systems relieve stress but few leave you feeling this blissfully happy. There’s also a sense of being open to whatever life brings you,
and less stuck in your ways.”

Stress is essentially when life starts to get on top of you. This can be work, finance, love, home life, or any number of life pressures we all experience. Biodanza gives you a space to come back into yourself and get some balance again.
Studies by Dr Marcus Stueck of the University of Leipzig, (Germany) have shown that a series of ten regular classes of Biodanza created marked improvements in a number of measurable stress related indicators - various psychological (regulation of emotion, health, personal psychology), physiological (skin response, blood pressure) and immunological variables.
Stueck said: "Initial results from the experimental-control-group study in Argentina and Germany reveal significant changes in psychological health and personality variables after 3 months. After a further 3 months without Biodanza, the effect could be seen to have stabilized. It could be shown that regular, long-term participation in Biodanza had positive effects ….”
“I arrived home in the late afternoon, also strangely lamb like, in a very laid back state. Not once did I snap at my children or husband (something I usually do at least three times between 6.00pm and 8.00pm) ….”

A happy person is more tolerant, more understanding and more able to listen to others. It is simply amazing how a class of two hours of guaranteed happiness per week can improve how you communicate with those close to you. And yes, we really do we need it every week!
Regular Biodanza classes help people become more open, confident and self assured. It essentially increases that non-quantifiable quality – personal presence.
“I was intensely shy and easily embarrassed. Biodanza was a huge challenge but I stuck with it. Every week, I became more and more outgoing. My life has changed in so, so many ways.”
Your ability to communicate determines your relative success and happiness in life. It affects your progress at work, your ability to socialise, your level of domestic happiness and how you are perceived socially.
Over 70% of communication is non-verbal. And these are the most important skills. People read your body language before you even speak! Biodanza is one of the few places where non-verbal communication skills are practised and improved weekly.
“Our relationship came back to life through Biodanza.
It was like falling in love again!”
“I became more outgoing through regular classes. I was shy.
That is now gone! I now have a partner.
And that part of my life is now working for me!”
“I needed to get over a divorce. Biodanza helped me
regain my confidence. I really needed it!”
Biodanza is a space dedicated to reconnecting couples with their love for themselves and each other. Biodanza has much to offer couples, those seeking to establish a couple or those recovering from the negative effect of a break-up.
Where there are specific problems within a married couple, it is recommended that partners undertake professional counselling in conjunction with Biodanza. If in doubt, speak to your facilitator.
