Extension Biodanza: Voice, music and percussion with Sergio Cruz

Both the vivencial part and the methodological part in 4,5 days

at Brandbu, 1.5 hours north of Oslo, Norway

The training starts on Friday 15th June 2018 at 18:00,

and ends on Tuesday 19th of June at 18:00.

Open to fully qualified biodanza teachers as well as students under supervision.  

Methodology and vivencial part

This extension is often given over two weekends. Now we organise the two weekends in 4,5 days instead.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday (15-17 June) the vivencial part is given. This part will be shared with the third cycle of School for Biodanza SRT - Norway.

On Monday and Tuesday (18-19 June) the methodological part is given.

Module 1 (Friday night, Saturday and Sunday) The first module will be mainly “vivencial”, which is of fundamental importance for the experience with voice and percussion given its diverse nuances. We will experience the voice as a musical instrument that produces integrated movement and induces deep vivencias and deep regression. We will give the introduction related to voice and the “emotional word” in Biodanza.

Module 2 (Monday and Tuesday) The second module will be mainly theoretical and methodological, and exclusive for those who did the first module which focused on the vivencial marathon of “Voice, Music and Percussion”. We will do several didactic voice vivencias to reinforce our knowledge as facilitators. We will talk about exercises of voice, and their congruence with the theoretical model of Professor Rolando Toro, as well as their possible variations and ways of deepening.

Please bring at least a small musical instrument of percussion.

VOICE in Biodanza The work of integration and liberation of voice in Biodanza is of fundamental importance. I call it “vocal movement”, or “the dance of voice”.

In the integrative goal of Biodanza, voice cannot be isolated from integrated movement, from dance, in which the pelvic, abdominal, diaphragmatic, pectoral, cervical and oral segments flow integrated and freely, extending themselves in resonance to the arms, hands, legs and feet.

The commitment with emotion and with expression should be complete. The spoken word in Biodanza should normally be reduced to a minimum, because it has a strong rational/cortical connotation and structure. But when this spoken word is provoked by emotion it transforms itself into a true dance.

Many people that work with voice on a daily basis are quite capable of expressing their ideas and objectives with words; however, when it comes to talking about the emotions that are involved in their lives or their passions, the same people block themselves and can barely bread, making integrated dance impossible.

In the work of voice in Biodanza, we stimulate this dance in which the rhythm, the breath, the internal and external movements emerge completely integrated. Through voice, as musical sound like a sonorous dance as well as singing, we get to vivencia, which is a healing vibration, a pulsation that penetrates and is at same time involving and dissolving the dancer.

The shamans utilize singing to transform disharmonic rhythms into healthy and harmonic rhythmic movements. They breath and sing harmony, like a breeze that caresses the flower of the trees, or like the wind in the ocean waves, or the sand at the beach, or like the water in waterfalls flowing over the rocks.

Healing organic flux reactivates the dance of life and cosmic music. Integrated movements are music. We just need to feel, admire and experience them.

All our embraces are sonorous, all our encounters with life are musical.

SINGING and VOICE in Biodanza are vital movements, pure emotion. Biodanza is movement, emotion, music, and singing. It is certainly the dance of life: the “Art of Existing”.

Sérgio Cruz 


All illnesses are musical problems whose healing consists in finding a musical solution.What heals is the communion with the healthy, the genius of sound.”


“The bigger the musical talent of the doctor, the more complete and faster is the healing process.”



“The emotions have musical forms, sonorous spaces, musical love notes. The vivencias express themselves in heartbeats of the universe. If we are connected with our palpitations everything transforms itself into music.”

Prof. Rolando Toro Araneda
