Dance Your Life

Dance Your Life and Discover the Wisdom of Your Heart Through Dance in Devon: Join Our Transformative 4-Hour Dance Journey!

A transformative 4-hour therapeutic dance experience designed to bridge the gap between mind and heart, guiding you to the depths of your soul and unlocking the healing potential within.

What is Dance Your Life (DYL)

Dance Your Life is a free-flowing, semi-structure dance that can have profound therapeutic effects. It can be an 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 liberating practice that allows you to express yourself authentically, become more aware of your patterns of relating, 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 journeys, 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, because you are feeling them in your body, 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, but it is an invitation, and nothing is forced in the journeys. You can follow your own body and create a parallel dance, according to your needs.


Theme - The Secret of Your Heart

Harmonising Your Heart and Your Brain & Collective Connection

Should I listen to my heart or my mind? We often ask ourselves this question. We tend to believe our mind is in our brains, something that is now being challenged by new research. But we wonder if we should follow one or the other. "The Secret of Your Heart" journey invites you to explore these questions and tap into the transformative power of the heart, uncovering its deep-seated wisdom and innate healing potential. You will have the chance to learn how to synchronise your heart and your brain's energy, and synchronise with the collective energy of the all the hearts in the group, embarking on a journey of profound discovery and deep emotional healing.

The idea is to foster a unique connection, not just with ourselves but also with those around us, and ultimately with the Earth. By integrating therapeutic dance with guided introspection, we create a space where the heart's whispers may become clear, guiding us towards authenticity, and healing.

Why The Secret of My Heart Journey is a Must-Attend?

Align your mind, body, and soul, forging a path towards profound personal growth in an environment that is sometimes light-hearted, sometimes deep.

2 / Authentic Connections

Engage in genuine heart connections, both with yourself and with fellow participants, learning a tool that you can use anywhere at anytime.

Dance has the power to release pent-up emotions, aiding in healing past traumas and clearing blockages. Feeling a safe enough space, your body can finally let go, and a new you can emerge.

This is what previous participants in this workshop have said about it.

To be honest, the workshop started as a rather challenging experience as I was torn between my thoughts and my feelings: the mind and the heart, society and myself, what was expected and what I wanted.
However, thanks to the variety of exercises the workshop included, my Energy raised throughout the class while my heart opened up more and I finished the workshop feeling acceptance: I accepted my feelings and I felt accepted with them. I Believe the workshop led me to the secret of my heart. Thank you, Alda, for that unique experience.

The workshop was a beautiful experience. As a dancer, it was lovely to see how our bodies communicate at different stages of life.
Little did I know the ability of our bodies to communicate, learn, express and release so easily.
The workshop was flowy, smooth and rich at the same time.
