An embodied dance practice is a form of dance that emphasizes the connection between the mind and body and the role that the body's physical experiences and sensations play in shaping our emotions, thoughts, and perceptions. It is a practice that combines dance movements and techniques with mindfulness and other somatic practices to help individuals cultivate a deeper awareness and understanding of their bodies and promote a greater sense of embodiment.
Life is the dancer and you are the dance.
