August 2014 – Playful Art of Dancing

This month we are being entertained and engaged with the playful art of Dancing Life with BIODANZA. 

Biodanza is an invitation to dance with Life… fully, intensely, joyfully! Originating in South America, this uplifting fusion of music, movement and genuine connection is being embraced around the world as a path to new ways of living and relating.

“Biodanza was exactly what I had been looking for – freestyle, intuitive, reaching deeply into my being . .  Realizing and experiencing deep connection between physical movement and state of mind .. . . A truly liberating experience!”

Kate Clement will be hosting the session. Kate has passion for dance, community and life, she facilitates Biodanza, a system of dance and movement inspired by the rich tapestry of life within ourselves, each other and the Bigger Life. For 16 years she lived in Africa and conducted Biodanza classes and workshops for the public as well as on meditation retreats, in schools, companies and community organisations.

Now she lives in Sydney and is one of the pioneers bringing Biodanza to Australia and is  Director of the Biodanza School of Australia, training Biodanza facilitators.

She is going to give a talk and an experience of Biodanza – the Dance of Life. Biodanza links Science Art and Compassion through movement.

“What we have seen over 40 years of researching  Biodanza is that when people dance in connection, they are happier, kinder, more healthy and  confident in life.”
