A SCHOOL FOR LIFE!

The theoretical and practical (vivencial) weekends have the power to transform your outlook on life, they form a comprehensive and unified training programme. We place great emphasis on the vivencial and experiential process.

 

Personal Life, Professional Life and the Social Life.

The First Year. Our school weekends will give you a grounding in the theoretical foundations of Biodanza and their relationship to different aspects of human sciences. Whether you are doing the training or coming as a regular dancer, our emphasis on dancing and connecting together in the vivencia will gradually deepen your experience.

You can choose to join the school in order to explore in more depth the personal and social aspects of Biodanza without wanting to become a facilitator so you can dance with us regularly each school weekend.

The Second Year. These weekends are now targeted more specifically to the mechanisms and effects of Biodanza. This is the heart of the training. 

The Third Year. This is an introduction to the methodology - the ‘how’ of becoming a facilitator. During this final year your training shifts to learning the theoretical and practical skills needed by a Biodanza facilitator to lead a group. These skills are:

 Understanding the theory and methodology of Biodanza

Your own ability to experience vivencia

Your ability to demonstrate the exercises to others

Your enunciation (or introduction) of exercises

Your choice of music and understanding of how it works

Your design of a class using the appropriate sequence of exercises

Your observation and reading of the group

Towards the end of this year a supervisory period will be arranged to help you to set up your own group and to apply the material learned and in the preparation and presentation of a monography.
