Blissdance programme Sept - Dec 2007

On Blissdance

Blissdance is an expression of Tantra, the art of integration and awakening, through the body. In a Blissdance session, you explore your inner and outer worlds through movement and stillness, music and silence. The dance is free and not stylized, though guided by me through the progression of a theme. I introduce the dance, show you how I interpret it, and then you find our own response.

Blissdance draws on the wisdom of Biodanza and various other dance, movement and meditation traditions.

One of the first principles of Tantra is presence – being present in the here and now, in your body, in your senses. Another is the connection between our passion, our sexuality and our hearts. Blissdance is a space where you can come rest into the simple beauty of moving in a body, with other bodies, in the dance of life.

All are welcome, no dance experience or fitness required.


All classes are on a Thursday evening 7.15pm – 8.45pm

13 & 20 September: Open classes

These two open classes are an ideal opportunity to come see and experience for yourself. Bring your friends – bring lots of them! The classes will be inspired by spring, and the bursting forth of life all around us. Come celebrate.

Cost: R50 pp per evening

A touch of love: 4 & 11 October

This short cycle is a gentle introduction to dancing from the heart, meeting yourself and the other in awareness, tenderness and spontaneity. It is recommended as an introduction to the next cycle.

Cost: R140, payable by 1 October

The dancing heart: 1, 8, 15. 22. 29 November

This cycle is an exploration of exquisite tenderness, a capacity for love beyond what you have dreamed of. From the first touch of live, the first breath, the baby opening her eyes, to a deep merging with the lover within you… this journey is an expression of Tantra for the heart. When our sexual capacity refines into the blossoming of the heart, that is when life becomes a dance of bliss. Bliss happens when the heart opens in a willingness to feel all that there is for you to feel.

Cost: R300, payable by 27 October
