Q: How was Biodanza discovered?
A: Biodanza is essentially the “science of a party”. Like most great discoveries, it was discovered by accident. Rolando Toro Araneda attended a party and realised everyone was happy and having a good time. This simple, basic observation led him to spend forty years exploring how music, simple movements and a “party atmosphere” could generate well-being and health in every category of human being.
The result has been a theoretical and empirically based method which has categorically helped hundreds of thousands of people reach higher states of well-being and self confidence.
See the section on Research for further details of documented evidence of Biodanza’s empirically proven benefits. Also read the Seven Powers of Biodanza.
