Prema Yoga Studio, a yoga studio in Shorouk City, joined forces with Simonetta Ottone, an Italian professional global dancer with clinical experiences concerning dancing as a therapy, to host Dance to Live 2022. The event is the first dance therapy school in Egypt.
Dance to Live: Wellness Through Movement
Dance to Live is the first-ever dance therapy school in Egypt, and it will feature a 50-hour introductory course with Simonetta Ottone. Drawing inspiration from Maria Fux, the ballerina who teaches the disabled to dance, Dance to Live will focus on using the Maria Fux method and its aspects on dance therapy to promote change that can help dancers get out and gradually abandon rigidity, fear, instability, regardless of his or her psychological and physical condition.
The program is a great way to start learning and practicing dance movement therapy and dive into its infinite possibilities concerning one’s personal wellness and well-being. As such, it invites dancers and yoga enthusiasts with no previous experience.
