Dance for Health

Energy – Dance – Bodywork

"Hiding in this cage of visible matter, is the invisible life bird. Pay attention to her
she is singing your song" – Kabir

Dance for Health is based on the five phases of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire) and combines the elements of dance and bodywork. By combining dance with other techniques (meditation, breathing technique), it activates balance and fosters energetic flow. Bodywork, the principles of the meridians (TCM) and free dance support this journey to ourselves and help to listen more closely to the inner "song". To let our "true inner self" dance, is a direct way to activate our personal inner strength, potentials and healing powers. Liberated, vitalised and fulfilled.

The 6th Element

Dance as dialogue between cultures

What do the five elements of Chinese philosophy have in common with the Gods and Goddesses expressed in Yoga and Hinduism? What energies do they move? Where do they meet in a space of similarity and synergy? Where do they differ? Can we create a 6th Elemental realm through dance, movement, yoga and embodiment?

Fabiana and Andrew, with over 50 years shared experience in their arts, dance and healing fields are merging and uniting the concepts of two cultures. Both Eastern, merged to bring them to life in our Western Culture. Both ancient and rich in metaphors, two different worldviews, search for this 6th Element: An Abstract yet Universal energetic force and pulsation that guides us, unites us...motivates, inspires and liberates US. This workshop will merge Chinese Medicine "5 Elements" Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire from the view of Dance for Health with Yoga, Dance, Mythology and Storytelling ("4 of my greatest passions" as Andrew would say), in search of a universal principle that empowers life. Each day a Chinese element will invite a Hindu deity to dialogue through dance and its energies opening the space for reflection. Let the Gods and Goddesses dance: Ganesha, Mahakala/ Shiva, Saraswati, Bagalamukhi and Krishna in a dialogue with the 5 Elements until only the essence of them remains, floating in space without cultural borders. The 6th element, simply Divine and Transcendent!

Dance for Health

Fabiana's long-standing experience in dance, her studies of Kinesiology and Holistic Breathing Technique lead to the development of her own " technique – "Dance for Health. This unprecedented system has the goal to help people become more aware of themselves. Dance for Health is energetic work combining elements of dance and body work. Various techniques from meditation, breathing techniques, dance, Touch for Health and many more are used to stimulate energy and help getting in touch with our inherent strengths and potentials.

Dance – Nature – Culture

Fabiana's growing interest in the healing methods of the Quetchuas Aymaras (descendants of the Inkas) in her home country, led to regular visits in North Argentina, where she could deepen her connection to her roots. The inseparable connection of this culture with her surrounding brought her to invite more and more people to dance at pristine places, in the midst of nature. This led to a new series of week seminars, not just in Argentina but also in Hawaii and India bringing participants to a natural stage setting, such as beaches, mountains, deserts and rivers facilitating the strengthening of the connection to this source.
