Biodanza Facilitator and Biodanza Festival North Organiser

Originally from Venezuela, I teach Spanish to adults, children and young people as well as working as a nanny for the past 5 years. I have been facilitating weekly and monthly biodanza sessions since 2014 and from 2011 I  have been organising popular monthly sessions in Manchester and Sheffield and I am happy to bring Biodanza wherever I am invited to do a taster class. As a Biodanza facilitator, I specialize in Biocentric Education, Biodanza for Older People, Biodanza for Children and Adolescents and also Identity and the four elements. I have been a firm believer in the positive power of Biodanza since I first encountered it in Italy in 2006. I see biodanza as a powerful tool and a pathway to better mental health and wellbeing.

For me it has been a real pleasure to organise this Biodanza festival since 2016. I live with my family in Cheshire and I enjoy yoga, fitness, hiking, dogs and languages. I look forward to meeting you and dancing together soon!
