Welcome to the School of Biodanza East Coast USA
Studying in a school of Biodanza is first and foremost an act of radical personal development.
The first 14 months are weekend modules each focused on deepening one's experiences in life through movement and reflection.
The second 14 months, not obligatory for those not becoming facilitators, are the methodological part of the program if you so wish to continue to become a facilitator in the Biodanza system.
All weekends will take place in English, can be translated into French, and we make a plan for any other languages!
Watch this informational video below from our sister community in San Francisco.

They ensure that the weekend didactic facilitators have the right qualifications to teach the various weekends. Michelle Dubreuil Macek will be one of the teachers and Director of the School. In addition, national and international IBF didactic teachers will be invited. In that way, you will benefit from a vast network of teachers and knowledge, and you will experience several different teachers and their personal ways of facilitating. There will be different teachers every year.
