Dance Free is a dance/free movement activity held in beautiful quiet nature locations including woodland, beaches. meadows and parks. Participants move to music in nature wearing silent disco headsets.
This session starts with a short facilitated guidance into movement to help participants move into their comfort zone, drop into their body and away their thoughts and then the rest is free movement to music through a journey of ambient, euphoric and soulful beats through a mix of genres.
Participants afterwards describe feeling such a sense of calm from releasing, letting go and feeling in their body. they feel a real sense of connection with themselves, others and nature, as well as a release of tension and energised. It's about moving as much or as little as you want, with no judgement. Everyone is welcome - anyone can participate, regardless of age, gender or ability. No experience is necessary. It is a fun and mindful experience, simply moving and connecting to the body through the music.
Dancing in nature develops people's connectedness with nature as it heightens the sensory experience which enable people to open to emotion such as compassion, perceive beauty or find meaning in nature.
