Free Your Dance!
Special Workshop on Emotions

27 - 29 December 2022


'Truth will set you free', is written in that big book that us humans have been carrying and fighting over for so long. Simple as it is (we immediately recognize our essence when we touch it). Complex as it is (there are so many layers…). 


This course is an invitation to come to our senses and root in the intelligence of our animal nature... which will guide us through new understanding on the subtilities and ways of life's energy and how they are revealed in our bodies and all our relations.


As our presence deepens, our consciousness and agency expands and we dare to go to disowned parts and avoided places inside... unneeded layers flesh off, we let go of control and inner conflict... we become more wholesome and attuned with life's movement... we become more free. In this 14-week laboratory, you will research the power of dance, poetry and imagery to do just that.

In this workshop you will learn how movement can support you to feel and relate in a healthier way!

Although no specific experience with dance or any kind of art is required, you do need to be availabe to show up in front of others, to dismantle old narratives and beliefs and expand the limits of your comfort zone.

About Constança


Constança started as a consultant and trainer in social innovation, supporting collectives at finding ways to restore social and environmental health in our Earth spaceship. She soon realized something was missing in her economist efforts: we need to understand the roots and ways of emotions if we really want a new human culture to emerge!

She has done intense research on life's energetic dynamics and how they are revealed in our bodies. She explored conscious movement with teachers all over Europe and brings

to her work inspirations from the 5 Rhythms, Contact Improvisation, Movement Medicine, Reconnect Dance and Zero One, among others. She also studied Movement-based Expressive Arts Therapy at Tamalpa Institue and is currently taking the Somatic Experiencing training with Associação Brazileira do Trauma. 

Her home is in Sintra. This land and the immense ocean nearby are an endless source of insight, poetry and remembrance that all we’re here to do is to allow and serve the universal dance as it unfolds.
