14-17 November 2019
Welcome to a four day long event dedicated to dance!
A journey we make and create together.
Soul dance is a fusion of modalities like 5rhythms, Ecstatic Dance, Contact impro, Tantric dance and more. Different ways to come into our own bodies as well as to connect with other people. The main focus is on letting the body move freely, feeling oneself, expressing with movement and voice and letting go of the social mind. Let the dancer become the dance!
In the beautiful surroundings of Ängsbacka, with nourishing and tasty vegetarian food and in a heart-opening and allowing atmosphere, come and enjoy moving in different workshops with great music and experience flow. This is a chance to be total, really go for it, dance ecstatically but also to go deep into your own inner space, be sensuous, intimate, intuitive, with or without a partner, and to express your emotions and your whole being.
Let’s create a dancing tribe!
We meet on Thursday afternoon, check-in is open from 15.00. After being shown your accommodation and unpacking your bags, there is an arrival free dance at 17.00. Dinner is served at 18.30, after which we gather in a welcome meeting to set the warm energy that will permeate the weekend, sharing both practical information, movement and connection, as well as setting intentions. In the evening you can shake it out and let go on the dance floor. This will be the start of a magical weekend.
Friday. After waking up in a slow movement workshop, a delicious breakfast prepares for a day of entering your body, letting go of physical inhibition and controlling mind, for sweat and ecstacy. Morning and afternoon offers inspiring dance workshops. After dinner, the long dance ceremony invites you to let go and unleash, waver between high and low, from soft and slow to ecstasy and to dance your life.
Saturday will be a gentler day for landing in bliss and flow, and also allowing for vulnerability. Space will be given for inquiry and sharing, for peeling layers and expressing one’s truth. We will explore sensuality in a tantric dance, connect with ourselves and others, hold space through movement and sense our bodies and souls and the intimate relationship between.
Sunday. A day of liberation, we welcome the day with dance,followed by a closing ceremony and a festive lunch.
