PADHA phonetically sounds like the Greek word PANTA which means everything or always. This brings in mind the Ancient Greek phrase Panta Rhei, as a whole phrase it is “τὰ πάντα ῥεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει” (ta panta rhei kai ouden menei), which means “everything flows, and nothing stays.”
What we are experiencing in each moment of now is something that will change. However, each moment of now is what creates who we are and takes us into a journey of evolution, emotional maturity and spiritual growth. Although we live in a world of impermanence each moment is crucial in experiencing life, relationships and our careers.
In the liminal space of everything and always, impermanence and change, this experience will guide you moment to moment to acquire high standards in dance technique, choreography, performance as well as in somatics, healing and spirituality.
We are here to learn, grow, evolve; may dance be the medium for all of us and the world to connect into oneness!
The program is designed specifically to have maximum 16 participants so we can offer the most to each individual. We will care one-to-one for your personal development and growth in dance and life.
