BioDanza- The Dance of Life

My direct experience with BioDanza:

As you can see in the video, Biodanza has quite a positive impact on the participants. For me personally, after taking only 3 classes (which range from 1.5 – 2 hours long each) at the Jonathan SeminarHotel in Hart, Germany- I was loving it! At first it was a bit awkward, as I am used to dancing in my own space, and usually in a loud, crowded, dark night club to bass filled electronic music. But this is quite different from that! In this class you are invited to get connected on a bit of an intimate level and it really tests your level of comfort with yourself, and with complete strangers. As a permanent nomad for the last 3 plus years, being up close and personal with strangers is something I have grown quite used to, and yet, I was a bit intimidated at first. But once the music starts, the energy is infectious. The classes I took part in always started with high energy exercises and gradually slowed down in intensity, and by the end it was a big cuddle puddle which was just fine by me! And when the weekend fest was over, it was as if this group of strangers had become a bit like family, chatting away over lunch as if they had known each other for years. All in all, I would say it is a great way to get in touch with yourself, and with others in completely uncomfortably comforting experience.

Pre Party- The night before…

The night before the journey was in itself a ride. Arriving in Punjab, there is little I can say about this city as I was only there for an evening, but it appeared to have all the usual Indian staples.. plenty of horn blowing, cows blocking streets, chai wallahs, and street stalls boasting the usual jars of sweets and long tentacle like bags of chips hanging from its corners like giant squid floating in the breeze.

This evening, I thought it would be safer and more hygienic to eat at a KFC (which I was shocked to see here in the first place), than to tempt fate and eat at one of the many street corner food stands. Wrong. Waaaaay wrong. The entire night was spent running to the bathroom and having it rebel from both ends leaving my body covered in a blanket of sweat and shaking miserably. It’s now 4am and we start this thing today at 3pm?  Read More
