Reconnective Dance

Reconnecting Through Dance

Reconnective Dance is an active dance meditation combining movement, breathing and body awareness exercises with dance and an eclectic mix of acoustic and electronic dance music. Reconnective Dance is often organized in beautiful locations in nature. The exercises that Reconnective Dance integrates come from both old traditions such as Yoga and Taoism (Tai Chi / Qigong) and new such as bioenergetics and biodynamic breathwork.

Through practicing this form of dance in alignment with the principles of these practices, energy is generated in the body and the mind and balance is restored. We regain inner peace, clarity, vitality and bliss.

We allow an inner movement of energy to make slow, rhythmic, graceful dance movements with the body. The more we can dance from within and in unison with the energies which flow in and outside of us, the more we feel inspired to make new expressive movements. There is also room for partner exercises which allow for a greater sense of connection with the group. A sense of community develops and this energy is taken into the rest of the event. 

After we have been guided by Arie to reconnect with ourselves and each other there is a time for free dancing, where you are left to feel what movement inspires you in the moment. 

Reconnective Dance Group Workshops

During Reconnective Dance group workshops we are invited and taken on a journey to reconnect to the self and experience a transformation through movement, breath, meditation and body awareness practices supported by music uniquely designed for the theme and setting of the event. We feel more joyful, energetic and connected to ourselves and each other after a Reconnective Dance Workshop. We feel more heart centered, grounded, and less stress. If you would like to find an event near you be sure to take a look at our events page.

Reconnective Dance Live / DJ performance

Arie can also take you on a Reconnective Dance Live experience performing with live instructions also accompanied by guitar and vocal singing. Actively inviting the audience on a journey inside, warming up the physical bodies, awakening the natural energy and feeling a greater sense of connection in themselves and with the other members the dance floor community! If you want to have an experience of this live performance be sure to listen to my latest album ‘Kundalini Experience’.

Testimonials

Love for the Reconnective Dance

Gradually, during the workshop, I became more and more aware of my heart and therefore also of all the hurts, rejections and all love that was not received. And the sorrow of misunderstood love. Our hearts have to endure so much during our lifetime. I felt the contraction of having to be closed off. Because I often have the idea that in daily life I have to 'protect' my heart, so shut it down. At the end of the evening when we closed in a cozy circle and were asked to share, I could only say ‘thank you, I feel relaxed and joyful again’. How nice that through the dance I am more aware of my inner body, my inner self, and that I can feel from my heart again.

"Every week on Tuesday, about 8 times, I did breathing exercises with Arie. Connected breathing, bioenergetics, qigong and meditation exercises. Arie has given it his own twist to the exercises by also working with self-produced music and participating in the exercises. I ended up integrating some of the exercises into my mornings before I start the day. What do the sessions with Arie bring? More peace, and the feeling of recognising the boundary between myself and the environment better."

“I had attended a series of sessions and Arie treated me very patiently and lovingly giving me the confidence to process unresolved and unprocessed emotions. I also really valued the exercises which Arie shared with me which I practice at home daily.”

“My 2-night stay at the community where Arie lives was a bubble of peace, away from home and my daily routine. My main goal was to experience a breathwork session with Arie: These 2 hours of movement, body awareness, breathing and meditation left me with a feeling of emotional aliveness and deep relaxation”
