Healing Dance

Welcome to the world of Healing Dance®. The Healing Dance Institute is a team of teachers dedicated to spreading this unique form of aquatic bodywork. Having no brick and mortar location, we hold seminars worldwide in private homes, hotels, spas and clinics--wherever suitable pools with a standing water depth and warm 35° C. water are to be found. Feel free to browse through our site, if you are curious. Maybe you will want to try out a session or learn how to do it.

a move done on the surface

This excerpt from the Healing Dance I instructional video shows the Hip Wave, one of Healing Dance's iconic moves. The voice-over explanation contains aquatic jargon such as "Near Hip",  "Far Shoulder" and "Godzilla Steps", as well as anatomical and kinesiological terminology, all of which is learned in the trainings.  There is a science lying behind this holistic art.

a move done underwater

This instructional video from the underwater course, Shape & Space, shows the Off Shoulder Somersault. The orange "F" in the lower right-hand corner means it is a Father Dive, that is, submerging with the receiver rolling away from the giver. Can you figure out why one move is called the Leg Aikido Corkscrew?
