Bodysong dance workshop
July 14, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
In this workshop we explore tools and techniques to make your body and mind more available for the music of life to dance through you.
Come to experience new possibilities as we dive into rhythm, texture, tone, articulation, dynamics, strength, and mobility. From this foundation through body practices, guided improvisations and structured ‘movement melodies’, we open the space for our dancing prayers of the moment.
During the workshop you may recognize moves and grooves from different styles and cultures, as well as a language that lives beyond those definitions. Ultimately all is in service of unlocking the potential of the unique ‘bodysong’ that you are.
All dance-lovers are welcome! Some movement experience is helpful.
Thursday 14 July
Time 10:30 – 14:00
We will have a short break in the middle of the workshop so feel free to bring a snack if you wish.
Contribution: €25 – €35

Janine is a dancer, facilitator, and creator of ritual performances devoted to embodying our full nature on this planet.
She grew up in The Netherlands and studied dance and choreography at CODARTS (Rotterdam Dance Academy) and London Contemporary Dance School. She worked as performer and choreographer in the UK, Australia, Europe and Asia in a wide range of projects including full-length theater productions, site-specific performances in nature and cities, video projects, improvised performances, collaborations with musicians, designers and visual artists.
In 2015 her life began to expand out of the contemporary arts world and she has lived a nomadic life with homes in Greece, Israel, Goa, Koh Phangan, Spain, and currently growing roots in Portugal.
Surrendering to the call “how does life want to dance through me?” has led to integrating voice and breath, sacred sexuality, women’s work, ritual practice, sovereignty embodiment, trauma-healing, and endless gifts from her inner and outer journeys into her work.
She has been teaching dance classes and workshops to people of all ages since she was 15 and currently offers BodySong Dance Workshops, Women’s Dance Temples, Self-Intimacy Journeys, Collective Dance Rituals and Yin Yoga classes independently, at retreat centers, and festivals.
