DANIEL *SONIC* ROJAS has been dancing & performing for more than 25 years, and is known around the world for his creativity and individual way of expressing himself by telling stories through dance. Combining his Latin roots and his experiential journey of many years as a professional dancer/performer, Daniel has created his own style that he calls \’Embodied Dance\’ (formally known as Contemporary-Break). This unique form has been recognised by the University of Science of Sports and Anatomy in Cologne, Germany, as one of the most complete movement art forms offered internationally. Embodied Dance dissolves the boundaries between different movement cultures with the aim of giving individuals a unique way of expressing themselves, connecting to feeling through movement and ultimately self-healing. Daniel shares Embodied Dance worldwide, including at many popular festivals and dance academies, as well as continues to perform/battle/judge international events and to share private sessions & trainings.
EDM is a unique methodology created by Daniel *Sonic* Rojas from an accumulation of more than 25 years experience as a professional dancer and movement enthusiast, through intense self practice and a deepening journey of experiencing movement in a holistic way. Drawing from personal, channeled dance energy and inspiration from qi gong, martial arts, yoga, calisthenics, breakdance, active meditations and more, this experiential & intuitive art form brings together different forms of movement, musicality and emotions, as a means to inspire greater understanding of the human form. EDM has many levels and sub styles, contributing to its rich, extensive and profound capacity as a unique movement methodology. Whether you are a professional dancer or otherwise, this art form not only shows you how to be creative within your own technique, but how to go beyond technique, using the least amount of energy, opening the mind to creativity and the body to feeling. EDM is a powerful practice that invites free movement within the whole body, aligns energy centres and allows the practitioner to feel inspired, open, energised, and at the deepest level, it becomes a healing modality, an understanding, a personal experience. An Introduction to Embodied Dance Movement offers a taste of several EDM concepts in one experience. This introductory workshop is an intentional journey, carrying the flavor of a continuous active meditation and often leaves participants highly energised, inspired, in awe of their experience and craving for more.
You do not need to be a dancer to enjoy this workshop - it can even take your yoga and other movement-based practices to a deeper level! No dance experience is necessary and all levels and backgrounds are welcome!
EDM: Fit Flow, a substyle of Embodied Dance Movement (EDM), is a specially formulated modality developed by Daniel *Sonic* Rojas from decades of personal practice that takes a wholistic approach to creating strength, flexibility, mobility, coordination, balance and alignment in the body. This incredibly dynamic practice uses creative calisthenics, mobility training and animalistic movements to develop an intelligent form of conditioning for the body and mind. Working from the inside out, Fit Flow focuses on building awareness of the often neglected muscles in the body that are responsible for keeping us fit, aligned and vital. Fit Flow is a complete physical conditioning training that works with progressive exercises, unique flows, and creative movements in order to move with confidence and totality.
EDM: Align, a substyle of Embodied Dance Movement (EDM), is a unique somatic experience using an interplay of gentle movements and stretches, yoga, meridian knowledge and bioenergetics to open and align the physical and energetic forms. From 25 years as a professional dancer / movement enthusiast, combined with years of a dedicated yoga practice, as well as 400 hours of certification in teaching yoga, Daniel has created EDM: Align to support the body and mind of movement practitioners. EDM: Align is a synthesis of the most effective bioenergetic practices from Daniel's movement career, offered as a meditative flow between physical postures, stretches, energetic movements, self massage, and embodiment practices. Expect to feel aligned, whole and energised. Open to all levels of practitioners.
