Biodanza works as an anti-stress therapy, helping to regulate sleep and blood pressure.  It gives participants a feeling of expanded vital life force energy, and helps develop the ability to self-regulate, balancing action and rest, and strengthening the individual's immune system.

Biodanza has great potential for children and young people who find traditional classroom learning approaches difficult. The physical movement and emotional energy is a release from activities based solely on the intellect. It provides a refreshing and innovative alternative for auditory and visual learners too.
