Dance Your Life

Dance Your Life and Unveil The Identities Behind the Names You Wear: Join Our Transformative 4-Hour Dance Workshop!

Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, liberation, and unique experiences? Welcome to our 5-hour Dance Your Life workshop, where movement, mindfulness, and music converge to create an unforgettable experience that will leave you feeling energized, centred, and connected.

What is Dance Your Life (DYL)

Dance Your Life is not just about grooving to the rhythm. It's a profound exploration of your body, mind, and soul through movement. Unlike traditional dance forms, there are no rigid choreographies or set steps to follow. Instead, it's a free-flowing, liberating practice that allows you to express yourself authentically and release any emotional or physical blockages in a safe and supportive space.


Intense emotions and new experiences can have a profound impact on the brain's neural pathways, leading to the formation of new connections and the strengthening of existing ones. Within the Dance Your Life workshops, a sacred space is provided for you to embark on new experiences through the suggested exercises, accompanied by evocative music and the collective energy of the group. This harmonious fusion can evoke intense emotions, creating a fertile ground for your brain to believe in new possibilities that can transform your life. When you genuinely believe in the possibility of new experiences and can feel this conviction deep within, it is merely a matter of time before they manifest into your reality. 

You will be invited to dance individually, in pairs or in groups. Human beings tend to learn faster in groups and in an embodied way.


Theme - The Names We Wear

Explore The Different Identities Behind Your Names!

Embark on a transformative journey with this Dance Your Life event in Dublin, delving into the deep resonance of names and their ties to our identity. Whether it's labels like "mum", "dad", "son", "wife", or the nicknames and surnames we acquire, each holds a unique energy and narrative. At times, some names might bring back memories of pain or embarrassment. Our therapeutic dance session is crafted to explore and embrace these identities, shedding light on the stories behind every name you've ever borne. Join us in Dublin to integrate, heal, and find a renewed sense of inner peace.


Using music, movement, and insightful exercises, we'll journey through the myriad of names we've embraced over our lifetimes and recognize their potent influence on our life's path and relationships. Dive into the narratives behind your names, understanding their impact on how you view yourself. Our event provides a nurturing environment where you can dance to the rhythm of your true self, connecting deeply with your authentic essence. Through this Dance Your Life session, uncover the transformative energy of names and step into a revitalized sense of self and empowerment.

I love Alda’s Dance Your Life workshops. She holds the space very gently and  takes us on a journey through a theme with just enough guidance to inspire. I enjoy having an invitation that I can interpret and own myself.  Every time I dance with Alda, it’s a deeply impactful and insightful experience


I always look forward to attending a dance your life workshop as it makes me feel in the flow of life.It is a safe place to relax and enjoy movement, while also letting emotions come up and out of myself naturally. I always feel relaxed and have more energy afterwards.Thankyou Alda for the time and thought that go into these sessions


Dance your life is a challenge to accept that transformation and realisation can come through marrying physical movement, intention and openness to change - it is something of a surprise that such processes can be joyous and fun as well as profound
