“B” means to dance with life. Developed by a medical doctor, it reduces stress by combining music, movement and the expression of emotion in a progressive way to bring out individual and group expression and integrate all aspects of our humanity, including our passion, sense of vitality, and creativity. “B” uses music that is carefully selected for its rhythmic qualities to release the power of expression we all hold deep within us. It allows us to AMPLIFY and explore our potential and the principle of putting life first to promote health and a sense of well-being, as well as connect us to ourselves and others. “B” addresses the totality of the human being. It amplifies our entire perception of who we are. The exercises wake up our aliveness, and this allows us to really feel the intensity of each moment. Suspend your thinking for a while and immerse yourself in the joy and power of music and movement in a structured, guided process. No previous dance experience is necessary, as this does not involve specific steps. Self-regulation is key, meaning you move according to your own fitness and flexibility. You will:
• Amplify your sense of feeling alive and joyful.
• Increase your capacity for emotional expression without words.
• Enhance what lies within you and bring that into the world with more confidence.
