The pedagogical and therapeutic success of
Biodanza is given by its effects on the organism as a whole and
by its existential rehabilitation power. Biodanza consists of
seven coherent powers. Each one has a transformer effect:
music as the universal language
that is accessible to everyone at any place and time. Music
immediately reaches the emotions without first passing through
the analytical part of our brains. Every tone has everything in
it and therefore has a depth and relative quality that can not
be measured with equipment.
With Biodanza we do
not so much study the semantics, but we learn to listen to the
soul of the music, the emotion that communicates with our
unconscious. Our listening capacity to listen is much more
important for understanding this universal language than our

Movement is the most original and primitive way to express life.
Everything, up to the smallest particle of the universe is
With Biodanza we
stimulate integrated movement; dance and movement in which we
feel original and complete. Movement in which we involve our
whole body. Movement which arises from our feelings.
(Spanish for experience) is an experience of the here and now
with great intensity and surrender. An experience with emotional,
sensorial and internal effects. In this experience we play no
role, it is not an exhibition, but we are God, angel, mother,
baby, lover, etc. The dance invites us to express the best of
Vivencia forms the opening through which we can penetrate into
the pure space of being, where the time stops to exist. Vivencia
makes transformation possible both on physical (e.g. resistance
and blood flow) and existential level (growth of affective motor
skills, self-confidence, etc.).
an expression of affection. In Biodanza the caress is a power,
when it manifests itself as a caress from your heart, your soul.
The caress is an act of intimate recognition and appreciation of
the person as a whole. With the caress we experience a balance
between the desire to give and receive affection. On a deep
level, the caress contains the wisdom of opening and

Rolando Toro, the founder of Biodanza. According to him, is
ensuring that all people have access to caresses, from children
to older people, the only meaningful revolution.
the poetry of the human encounter and affective connection. We
feel that we are part of a family, an affective network. The
Biodanza group has a very different connotation than other
groups. There is no talking and the group has no structure of
opinions or so-called positive criticism.
With Biodanza we are part of a group that is optimistic and
affectionate. The group is essential in our transformation
process, because it creates new forms of communication and
emotional connection. The group forms the breeding ground for
rebirth, in which each participant finds the affective security
in which it is possible to transform.
Biodanza is integrative in which the perception of physical
limits, fear and vigilance disappears. We feel like being reborn,
we experience a deep harmony in which our perception and
awareness increase. Biodanza works with regressive trance that
leads us to our origins and heals what has been painful in the
beginning of our lives.
Trance also results in organic recovery and renewal at a
cellular level. Biodanza makes you younger, because soft
regression is part of every Biodanza session. The
regression in Biodanza gives a experience of being born again in
an affective nest, a safe and kind environment.
Biodanza consist of dance and movement, in which we enter into a
deeper connection with humanity and the universe in a state of expanded
As a result, we grow in our perception of the essential. We grow
in our wonder
to be alive,
in infinite love, trust, understanding and compassion.
With the movements we strengthen our natural capacity to connect
with all the life.
From the essence within ourselves we dissolve our
consciousness in the 'womb' of the universe. The place that
helps us to see, understand and love the depth of the other, of
