The essence of DANCE

Dancing takes us back to the essence of who we are. To the source. It makes us aware of what we have always known, but might have forgotten. It is a part of life – just like eating, sleeping and drinking. Look around you. What do you witness? Do you see that woman walking, her dress softly blowing in the wind – as though she is being taken by surprise? Do you see that dog turning circles – as though its movements are simple yet refined? Do you feel your own heart beat, gently connecting you to the rhythm of the earth? We are all intertwined to one another. We are all connected to a larger understanding. And we dance. To live. To celebrate. And to give.

DANCE ROOTS stands for:

Depth
Awareness
Necessity
Chance
Experience

Depth
We can go high only if we are able to go deep. Energy can only float through is fully when we have strong roots into the earth. When we are deeply connected to our life in this body, on this planet. Only then can ecstasy take place. Only then can we feel supported by life as we make connection to our higher purpose, our soul’s calling.

Awareness
Through movement and deep connection with our body, can we become aware of our being on this earth and in this body. Consciousness is an acceptance of who we are, what we feel and how we experience ourselves right here and right now. It is a fully being present, and a showing up for what arises – without attachment. We notice and be with. And by doing so, we move beyond and are being moved by life as it floats through us.

Necessity
Movement and dance are necessary for our own growth and be-ing. Everything is in constant motion. No two moments are the same. A flower is growing from a seed towards the light. Water is needed for our system to stay alive. Movement helps us stay in motion. It is a pathway towards health. Movement asks of us to step out of our comfort zone, and be moved along the flow of life.

Chance
Take a chance and drop into your body even more deeply. I dare you to try it out. To jump. To do something you have never dared before. And to play. To accept this invitation as nothing more than an opportunity and nothing less than a possibility. It is here and now that you are receiving this offer. Will you accept?

Experience
Every dance is a new movement. Every movement a new breath. Every breath a new moment. Every moment a new experience. What is it you have always wanted to experience but never dared to? Set your intention and breath it in? Explore new ways to be in your body. Broaden your state of mind. Learn to go beyond what is limiting you. Thoughts. Feelings. Old stories of belonging. Try out something new. Take a pause. And breathe.
