whAT IS Embodied dance movement?
Embodied Dance Movement (EDM) is a unique, multi-layered movement methodology created by Daniel *Sonic* Rojas from an accumulation of more than 25 years experience as a professional dancer and movement enthusiast, created through intense self practice and a deepening journey of experiencing movement in a holistic way. Everything is a dance, from the way we breathe to the way we move within our relationships and environment. EDM specialises in the foundational understanding of body mechanics so that one can find the rhythm in all movements. Through its integrative approach, EDM dissolves the boundaries between movement cultures with the aim of deepening body awareness, connecting to feeling and developing an intelligent self practice of conscious movement.
The five core principles of EDM include mobility, alignment, strength, feeling and locomotive movement. these principles are explored through isolations, animalistic movements, creative calisthenics, embodiment of emotion and bioenergetic flows between movement and stillness.
Who is EDM for? Public (non-dancers), High Level Dance / Theatre Professionals, Bboys / Hip Hop / Breakdance, Couples, Yogis, Movement Camps, School Programmes, Fitness Enthusiasts, Festivals, Multi-Day Immersions, Adjunct Facilitation on Retreats / Trainings. All workshops / trainings can be tailored to the participants level and movement background, from professional to beginner.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Daniels´ humble manner and simplicity in guidance through Embodied Dance Movement, made us all feel comfortable and joyful - waking up our souls to dance with the rhythms of the music. His guidance created a safe environment to feel free in and to just stay in ones own space and vibration. An empowering and vivifying way to transform tension into flowing energy." - Wivi-Anne Nyberg
"I loved how Daniel encouraged us to connect with the brave and vivacious inner child, and let it float with joy through Embodied Dance Movement. Daniel's deconstruction of complex dance into simple moves made it possible for each of us to follow and make the dance our own. That was deeply empowering and liberating!" - Maria Kassova
"Daniel and his Embodied Dance Movement … How to describe best this man's unique teaching technique. You can't... It must be experienced ... and it must be felt ... To say that it is an out-of-body experience is an understatement - it's a change in your perception of life and the way you live it ... His body composition and his mixture of the five elements of earth, fire, air, water and the secret ingredient, himself, that he uses in his teaching is revolutionizing ... Give your body and soul some pampering ... you won’t regret it !!!! - Jesper Kryger, Creative Director & Choreographer
