About "Salon de Danse"
I have created the ”Salon de Danse”- method especially for non- dancers in Paris 2013. It started with a group of women wanting to dance, without too much pressure of learning the right steps, but more enjoying the movement.
This method allows everyone to use the body movement in an individual way. Using different kinds of music in a class, I provide participants a possibility to experience different kinds of feelings and the purifying flow of dance.
In my class you can move without thinking too much, instead, letting oneself free to enjoy the energy and the movement. There is no judgment of doing right or wrong; the class atmosphere supports individual differences. Everyone is free to dance how they feel.
Previous dance skills are not necessary, just an open mind. You´ll be guided through the class, but you will have freedom to your own experience of the movement. This way of moving allows you to feel more centered and energized. Light in both the body and mind.
Yoga and Dance Retreats in Corsica
I have been teaching Salon de Danse classes in Yoga and Dance Retreats several years in a beautiful family Villa in Corsica. It is an active and joyful wellness week with a great group of people. We enjoy delicious vegetarian food and there is also guided hiking in stunning Corsican landscapes.
