SPIRITUAL DANCE FESTIVAL - NATARAJ 2017-18 : Would you like to know more?

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Freeing your capacity for expression

All are welcome to a meditative journey where presence meets creativity. Together we will awake openness, receptivity and softness in the body in movement. Free our capacity of expression, meet ourselves and meet others in a state of Presence and Empathy.

We will explore Contact Improvisation through anatomical investigations and partnering exercises enhancing a state of released and effortless motion. How to access intuition and trust to enable non Verbal Communication and the capacity of Listening through Touch.

Entering in deep connection to our own structure and its intelligence, together being, sensing, creating and transforming in intuitive dance dialogues, traveling on a subtle line where receptivity and intention meet.

We will awake and integrate the Voice in our dances, tuning, harmonizing and awakening our Voice-Body Instrument. In a choral structure creating harmonies and melodies; touching stillness or movement, listening, connecting to the power of our resonating bodies and inner realities.

Presence Joy and Spontaneity will be our guides!

DSC_2304Finding intimacy with yourself and others through dance

Although the typical experience of one participating in a biodanza class is that of playfulness, connection, intimacy, dance and joy, the fully vastness of the theoretical model behind biodanza is unlikely (or necessary) to be grasped. The system is more one of experience and its effects are present regardless of the cognitive understanding of what is occurring.

However, it is fascinating to realize what is all taken into account within the system, from the neurological, physiological and psychological perspectives, to the mythological archetypes, studies of human movement and musical effects to art, transcendental states and social action. 

Biodanza stimulates our genetic potential through various lines of development into its highest expression.

A dynamic movement practice of being in your body

5 Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community.

While a seemingly simple process, the 5 Rhythms practice facilitates deep and unending explorations, moving the dancer beyond self-imposed limitations and isolation into new depths of creativity and connection.

Each rhythm — Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness™ — is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative.  It is, in essence, “exercise for the right brain”.

When we practice 5 Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things. Within the group context we create connection and community and hone our instincts and our intuitions. We are made up of all walks of life – every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.

5 Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay masks down, and dance till we disappear.

Only to rediscover ourselves through it all.

Explore your unique inner dance and self-expression

Expressive Movement Therapy will explore our unique inner dance and self-expression. Through various movement-based techniques we will engage deeply with our self-identity, the craft of movement and hence enhance our personal integration. It is through this heightened sense of self, we will become empowered enough to reach out to others.

This creative-therapeutic-expressive movement process will suit a wide range of personalities and body types.

The workshop will use body preparation exercises, creative movement sequences to music, guided dialogues, dance studies and movement relaxation techniques, to strengthen the body-mind connection and the capacity for effective expression and communication. With their enhanced creativity, problem-solving skills, and renewed capacity for introspection and exploration, participants will emerge equipped for resonant and fruitful daily interactions, as well as the ability to use movement activities & games with other groups of children, adolescents, adults and the elderly.

A purification ceremony to start off the year

Sweat lodges are ceremonies of purification and a way to connect humble ourselves from our everyday mind and more deeply to source. In doing so we are able to gain clarity about what really is important and to set our intentions from that place.

Forms of these ceremonies have been used by many different native cultures, in many countries and the symbolism, structures and procedures vary but always with an intention of seeking guidance and clarity. The ceremonies I facilitate borrow and connect different symbolism from various traditions but belong to no single tradition, rather they are used as tools to access states of consciousness that are available to all, and deeper than the cultural mind.

We will be working on a fun and funky group choreography to perform at the closing show!

All are welcome, no experience required.

Bollywood Dance Classes

Bollywood dance is about storytelling. The songs are from the movies and are there for a particular reason- for example, a celebration song, a seduction song, a love song, a song of sadness. So when you dance it out, you are dancing to the words and mood. Different songs are used at different occasions. There are tons of wedding songs, which you will hear being played at every Indian wedding.

Breath Of Life

Breath of Life can help you become aware of and experience each of the seven chakras. This meditation is active in nature and uses deep rapid breathing and body movement, accompanied by musical sounds to open and bring awareness to the chakras. As we breathe deeply into each Chakra, it allows us to connect with our body and charge the chakras with energy. This promotes a vertical connection between all the chakras, and lets the energy flow more easily up and down the spine.

There are many benefits of practising Breath of Life as it helps us to keep the body moving and the energy flowing. It will enable us to bring silence and vitality into our everyday life. While doing this meditation, one has to be relaxed, remain a witness to whatever is happening, and not judge it.

Soul Dance

Carried by the earth and the soul as you touch the sky

Since thousands of years the dance was a connection to the original source, to the source of yourself.

I take you on a journey to this source, a journey to your soul, feeling the elements of earth, water, air and fire, feeling different qualities, sometimes slowly and tender, sometimes wild and dynamic, sometimes opening and bordering, always in a safe sacred space.

You are invited in deep experience enjoyed by yourself, with a partner and the whole group. You will make the experience going to deep emotions and to get to know you completely new. You will make the experience to feel connected with the universe through yourself and the others.

“let yourself be carried by the earth and the soul as you touch the sky.”

New Year Eve 2018

We aim to bring 2018 in with a bang!

To do so we will have some a Sacred Ceremony and intention setting with Cacao,  Spectacular Performances, Superfood & Smoothies bar,  late night DJs and a special themed Temple.

Evenings will include special dance performances and also the Nataraj Lounge with musicians playing live. What’s more we will be bringing in the New Year in style in this beautifully landscaped oasis with a special party and sacred cacao ceremony to set our intentions for 2018 and to really celebrate each other. The following day we will be offering Shamanic Sweat Lodge ceremonies to start a purification into the New Year. Jump into the culture and join us with the Lord of the Dance – Nataraj!

Open your heart with this sacred medicine

Chocolate as you’ve never experienced it before – as a medicine in a group setting to create connection in community and become clearer about what really matters to your heart

In the ceremony there is a chance to re-connect to your heart’s wisdom to set intentions of let go and also of bringing in new ways of being. In this warm space you are held and nurtured and will experience a heightened sense of connectedness to everyone else around you, others in your life who are not present and to the sacredness of all that surrounds you.

What Happens in a Ceremony ?

The format is very loose allowing for us to tune into what is really alive and respond to that, rather than imposing structures from the mind. Very often it includes:

  • Meditation
  • Intention Setting
  • Dancing
  • Soft Intimacy Exercises (respecting one’s own boundaries of course!)
  • Tantra
  • Resting as a Group

Our Drink

The drink used in our ceremony is made from 100% raw ceremonial grade cacao. It contains a  blend of spices and super foods and  is suitable for vegans.

The ceremony itself lasts for around 3 and a half hours but the effects stay around in a more subtle way for a few hours after this and you can tune into the wisdom by reconnecting to a quiet space. Some lethargy and emotional movement may occur later after a ceremony as there is an integration and rest period – this is a good time to allow all old emotions to just pass through like a breeze as deep patterns are released. Nurture and be easy on yourself.

Student Performances

During the festival you will have a chance to take part in classes in various styles and learn a choreography piece from some world class teachers. These will be presented on the final evening as a culmination of the whole festival.

You can choose to take part in the classes listed in the menu above and then go on to be part of the performance – you can also just take these classes for fun.

In addition there is an open space for any hidden talents you have always wanted to be witnessed!

Evening Entertainment

Live music and Dj’s will round off the evenings entertainment as we enjoy one last time to party and dance together – be warned this party can really take off and go late into the night so choose when you have enough energy in your feet to still take you to bed!

An evening program to relax and enjoy.

These are evening shows presented by our talented team of dance professionals that allow you to delight in the varied colours and styles of our team. They will include:

Belly Dancing

Belly dance is primarily a torso-driven dance, with an emphasis on articulations of the hips. Unlike many Western dance forms, the focus of the dance is on relaxed, natural isolations of the torso muscles, rather than on movements of the limbs through space. Although some of these isolations appear superficially similar to the isolations used in jazz ballet, they are often driven differently and have a different feeling or emphasis, which is usually more subtle and contained.

Correct posture and muscle control is as important in belly dance as it is in other fields of dance, and enables a dancer to move the hips freely whilst avoiding lower back injuries. The basic posture used varies slightly between styles (in particular, the knees may be more or less bent, weight may be held slightly further back or forward, and ‘resting’ arm position may vary), but a kinesiologically correct posture should always be used. Some belly dancers also study Pilates or Alexander technique in order to achieve a healthy and efficient posture.

Contemporary Dance

Contemporary dance is a popular form of dance which developed during the middle portion of the twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominating performance genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, with particularly strong popularity in the U.S. and Europe. Although originally informed by and borrowing from classical,modern, and jazz styles, it has since come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance,[1] but due to its popularity amongst trained dancers and some overlap in movement type, it is often perceived as being closely related to modern dance, ballet and other classical concert dance styles.

In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to utilize both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and modern dance’s stress on the torso, and also employs contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance.[2] Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well. It sometimes also incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance Butoh.

Bollywood Style

The term ‘Bollywood’ comes from the combination of the names of Bombay (now known as Mumbai) and Hollywood. The Bollywood film industry, based in Mumbai, is the largest film industry in the world in terms of ticket sales and the amount of films made per year.

Bollywood films are mostly musicals with very few movies made without at least one song and dance sequence. The films feature love interests, comedy and action thrills. The plots are often melodramatic and often feature star-crossed lovers, corrupt politicians, twins separated at birth, conniving villains, angry parents, courtesans with hearts of gold, dramatic reversals of fortune, and convenient coincidences.

Bhangra

Bhangra refers to several types of dance originating from the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent.[1] The earliest developed of these was a folk dance conducted by Punjabis in the central northern areas of the region to celebrate the harvest, and whose general practice had ended by the Partition, 1947.

In the 1950s, a new folk dance, representative of the state of Punjab and composed of glimpses of men’s Punjabi dance styles, was created and eventually received the title of bhangra. In 1954. first time bhangra was performed on stage. First developed in India and attaining a rather standardized form by the 1980s, the folkloric bhangra was exported to other countries by Punjabi emigrants. By the 1990s, a still newer style of dance called bhangra was being staged in the Punjabi Diaspora, often characterized by a fusion with Western dance styles and the use of prerecorded audio mixes. Aside from these specific dance genres, Punjabi dancing in general, especially when done to popular bhangra music, is often casually called “bhangra

Sing and Dance the night away.

Playing in the Nataraj Lounge will be Riya Sokol and Madhu Sudan. 

In the Nataraj Lounge we have a dedicated space for relaxing with friends in an atmospheric chillout zone. Non-alcoholics drinks, spaces to recline and chat, a dreaming deep experience and live evening music.

Riya is a unique coloratura soprano which she uses in many commercial and non-commercial projects – a lyrics writer and the author of her Neverland musical. It has a social mission: to support people at the risk of social exclusion, suffering from various reasons- starting with shame, the fear and guilt until after the depression.

Since October 2011, she became THE Seth Riggs student (the legend, the teacher, the creator of the Speech Level Singing technique), joining the group of his students, who are e.g. Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan, and many other great stars – and, above all, his closest friend Michael Jackson the King, whom Seth taught for 32 years.

She writes english lyrics, for example, songs from the TV series “Friends” by Gregory Kuczeriszka.
Recently she wrote the lyrics to the song for the world promotion of the movie by Jan Komasa “Miasto 44″, title: “Warsaw 44″ to the music of Paweł Lucewicz.

Madhusudan is a Baul Musician, these are mystical musicians from Bengal. They sing from the Heart and pour out their feelings and emotions in their songs. Their music reflects bonds of the heart, subtly revealing the mystery of life, the laws of nature and the ultimate union with the divine. Baul is a mystic nomad dealing with human relations, emotions and spontaneously expressing their spiritual ideology through music & dance.

Bauls use a number of musical instruments: the most common is the ektara, a one-stringed “plucked drum” drone instrument, carved from the epicarp of a gourd, and made of bamboo and goatskin. Others include the dotara, a long-necked fretless lute (while the name literally means “two stringed” it usually has four metal strings) made of the wood of a jackfruit or neem tree. Drums like the duggi, a small hand-held earthen drum, and and khol; small cymbals called khartal and manjira, and the bamboo flute are also used. Ghungur and nupur are anklets with bells that ring while the person wearing them dances.

As well as all the workshops, concerts, parties and events we also have a dedicated Healing Temple. Here there will be a small team ready for emotional support each day who can help you with any emotions that have been stirred up, questions about what is happening or just a good hug and a cup of tea.

In addition to this support we have arranged for some incredible bodyworkers, healers and session givers who will be offering session slots through out the festival.  A full brochure of these will be available in the healing temple with more details and prices.

Masha offers Psychosomatic Sessions that help integrate your own body wisdom with your personal deeper understanding why you have certain aches, pains or serious ailments right now or have been having in the past years. In the session (first, through Masha’s guidance and then, with your own psychosomatic awareness) you will be able to ask your own body what is the message it is trying to tell you, what to do about it, what to do less of in your life & what to focus on going forward.

Each session can be either a quick way of learning your own alphabet, the unique language your body uses to talk to you every day; and/or a deeper dive into the hidden depths of subconscious patterns that are affecting your whole being.

Masha’s dream is to empower people to keep discovering their own gifts, so that there not a ‘few select’ people carrying wisdom for everyone, but that each person becomes their own Wise Elder, carrying & exploring their own wisdom, responsible for their own body & inner power. Her quiet whisper to you would be: Softening back to Love. www.beregini.eu
