Inspiration, Creativity & Enlightenment in Dance and in Life! 

A series of formless dance exercises with guidance to achieve a deeper connection with self and transcend it.  It's deep and profound, it is a soul wash, a rebirth per say... very healing. The work will develop your imagination, and inspiration for your dance and your life.  

This is an inner experience to learn to dance and commune with the spirit, to express self through movement, and also to touch that which transcends self. We will dance imaginary hypothetical themes to evoke hidden emotions and unfold new paradigms ... Come with open heart, ready to cry and to laugh and willingness to meet the new YOU.

  Dancing The Rhythms of Life

At this workshop there's minimum verbal communication. It is designed to calm the mind from stressful thoughts, repressed feelings and comprised emotions.

You learn to release stored blocked energies and to be free from life's expectations.  This process allows you to discover who you really are and what are you here for!

This dance style unfolds on endless different movements that release greedy emotions and surrenders the body's motion dream.

The class instruction is built up on the 5 rhythms and 5 basic emotions of life:  fear, anger, sadness, happiness and compassion. We will connect with some goddesses archetypes and dance through these energies.  

It is a "therapy" through dance,  recommended for those who seek for inner growth through body, mind and soul. "The body becomes an ear to the cosmos"

ENLIGHTENMENT GYPSY DANCE

With deep respect and acknowledgement for the Gypsy Tradition and "humankind's most ancient dance form," Enlightenment Through Dance Presents: "The Enlightenment Gypsy Dance Classes"

This workshop is designed to awaken the "gypsy" within, bringing emotions out to play and freeing the body to express them naturally with passion.

Gypsy dance is improvised, playful and dynamic. It's also sensual, compassionate and unexpected. To understand this concept takes time and practice. Choreography can be done for performances purposes, but it does not reflect the Gypsy spirit, therefore it's not the aim of this workshop.

"Through these classes you will be able to step into an inner world from which we can generate a dance that knows no boundaries"...

Movements taught will come from a variety of cultures, particularly the Middle East, Brazil and Modern American Dance. We fuse styles and combine movements, dancing without cultural boundaries through songs that call our emotions out to play.
