Holistic Dance Therapy

GAIA healing dance is a holistic dance therapy based on traditional Greek dance. It works on a physical, energetic and mental level by combining elements from dance and holistic body therapy. 

If we trace Greek dance back to its origins in ancient Greece, we find out that dance and music were medicine for healing body and soul in the sense of holistic health education. This original power has always been inherent in Greek dance and helps us to heal by dancing even today.

Traditional Greek dance in a sense extends outward to reach the cosmic - to find purpose in the unity of dance and music alive in this world. According to its origins in ancient times, the understanding of dance was not limited to a rhythmic movement of man, but extended to all the living rhythms of nature. This means an understanding of nature, the whole cosmos as a dancing phenomenon.

Dance - and reconnect!

We developed the holistic dance therapy GAIA healing dance in the quest of reconnecting to music and dance as means of healing body and soul. Our aim is to share an authentic dance experience with all of its original energy and depth with you. 

Beyond the mere conveying of dance steps and seminar contents, our endeavour is to create a holistic space that supports physical and emotional release and facilitates a genuine sharing of personal experiences between people and cultures, as well as between body and soul. 

Deeply ingrained in tradition, 

Greek dance enables you to root, rise and unfold in the present.

Our holistic approach enables you to internalise the healing qualities of the dances and to establish, maintain or restore the integration of body, mind and soul. 

You will immerse yourself in the spiritual dimension of the ancient rhythms and melodies and at the same time encounter more about the mythological, historical and cultural background of Greek dance. 

It is a great honour for us to share the secrets of danced European tradition with you and to gather step by step all the wisdom that traditional Greek dance provides for us.
