The return to the wisdom of the body, spontaneity of the movements, the rhythm of breathing…
Deep inside you, Nature is dancing the holy dance of the Elements. Do you know their rhythms?
Do you recognize their shape, taste, and color? Do you hear their sound?
The origin of NuDanza
Inspired by his exploration of the culture of Old Europe, Patrick Adrian, author of more than 40 books, came up with a special dance based on natural elements governing our inner life as well as the whole universe.
NuDanza changes our understanding of the body, purifies the mind and expand our feelings thus creating the new experience of reality. The change is gentle but profound, encompassing all aspects of our life.
What is NuDanza Starter?
NuDanza Starter is the first workshop in NuDanza adventure. You will learn how to dance with natural elements: earth, water, fire, air, and chaos. Each element has its simple movements as well as the pattern of breathing. On the deep physiological level, the dance of the elements breaks the illusion of separation from nature and other people. As a dancing technique, NuDanza is focused on creating liberating experiences, eliminating all patterns starting from the level of bodily movements.
By dancing the earth element, we awaken stability, strength, reliability and all other positive characteristics of the earth. By dancing the water, we awaken gentleness and connectedness; the dance of the fire gives as passion and inspire us for action. The dance of the air stimulates joy, happiness, and creativity.
Once the dancer learns how to connect soft focus of each element with spontaneity and flow, she is ready for further exploration of NuDanza.
Where are we dancing?
NuDanza starter workshops are usually held during weekends; Saturday from 9:00 to 20:00 and Sunday from 9:00 to 13:00.
No previous knowledge or dancing experience is required – just a desire for a new dancing experience.
NuDanza Starter workshop is a foundation for further dance exploration of liberating experiences through NuDanza Deepness Program.
It is recommended that dancers attend regular monthly meetings to refresh their experiences with NuDanza Starter and the dance of the elements.
NuDanza: movement, breathing, awareness.
You are breathing deep, following the rhythm old as life itself. Your roots are invisible but strong.
Firm as a rock, you are drawing your strength from unseen depths.You lead with a steady hand; you offer a support and security never to be lost.
You are opening yourself, expanding your chest and breathing in the drops of life. From the spring to the ocean you are flowing like a river. Like a rain, you are falling onto thirsty meadows; like a lake, you are cooling warm summer days. Your heart is filled with invincible softness. In your embrace everything is possible.
There is a flame in your breath; a spark never to be put out. Nothing can obstruct your path; you are unstoppable! You are an arrow let off from the heart of passion; a sword chopping off everything that ever imprisoned you. You are born for that; you are burning for that.
Freed from all weight, as light as a feather, ethereal and pure. One thought, and off you go to the farthest corner of the universe. Another thought and you are here again. You are a breeze, but you can be a hurricane. You are movement, but you bring peace.
There, on the source, it was silence. Then, in the beginning, everything was one. Entwined, addle, unrecognizable, wild, unbridled, unpredictable and… free. Do not be afraid of yourself; do not be afraid of your untamed heart.
