Ever heard of Gabriel Roth’s The 5 Ryhthms? Or Vinn Marti’s Soul Motion? These dance/movement forms are gaining popularity on the U.S. West Coast. They seem to be really effective ways to explore your inner self, your relationship to others and your connection to the world using movement, dance and music. Ecstatic dance is a way to describe it, but German speakers might find that phrase too sexually oriented. It isn’t sexual at all. Basically, you enter a room with others, music is played, you begin dancing, and a qualified facilitator guides you through the process for about an hour or two.
Well, try it yourself this Friday in Graz. Facilitator Reingard invites everyone to try out her DancEmotion every Friday from 16:30 until 18:00. The location is: Zentrum Terrassenhaussiedlung St. Peter. Call 0676-577-3663. First visit is free!
