Movement Improvisation in Dance is the art of executing movement without any previous preparation, letting movement arise from within at the moment as a way to express ourselves.

Expressive dance is a healing art.

Healing Dance Improvisation Workshop

Improvisation in dance is the art of executing movements without any prior preparation. Improvisation explores the body’s shape, different levels, and dynamics. It allows creativity and expression to flow and helps one to really understand the music and find inner freedom.

Movement is the song of the body. The body has its own song from which the movement of dancing arises spontaneously. This song, if you care to listen to it, is beauty. We could say that it is part of nature. And when the body is given the space to sing i heals, it is a happy body and we feel light and free.

I would first like to discuss the benefits of dance improvisation. or healing dance: Improvisation is a very spontaneous and expressive art. It has many different benefits to its act. For example, improvisation can boost one’s confidence.

Practicing dance improvisational can heal our fear of making mistakes, promoting self-acceptance and self-discovery. This means that improvisation can help us find out who we really are, beneath the surface. It allows us to discover ourselves. It enhances our spontaneity and allows our playful inner child to emerge.

Another important aspect of this healing dance is re-discovering musicality by listening with the heart rather than with the filter of the mind. By allowing ourselves to freely move to the music, we start to feel the music developing awareness through the body. This will allow movements to express our feelings and emotions, creating a connection to ourselves and eventually to others.

Lastly,  improvisation is beneficial for recovery from depression, anxiety, stress, and trauma. Just one full hour of healing dance improvisation can lead to more creativity and ideas. Healing Dance Improvisation boosts quick thinking, clears distracting thoughts, enhances communication skills and self-expression. Improvisation makes us feel joyful and is a dynamic meditation that roots us in the present moment!
