Welcome to the Website of the Initiative “Dancers’ Village”. We are a group of people who wish to facilitate and create a new example and quality of life communities.


Our Vision

With a background of decades of Contact Improvisation, Dance and Bodywork, Therapies and Coachings, Community and Group work, we wish to create a place to live and to visit, where the wisdom of the body and of well-being joins a new balance in living with and from nature.

We wish to create places where we can experience healing and personal growth in a supportive community, grow into our own love for ourselves and the world, and enjoy life while serving a new world, which reaches a new and conscious equilibrium of the needs of us human beings and all other species on this earth. And not as a side effect, fulfill thereby our own needs, dreams and happiness.

Spring 2019 – CI in Nature

The Dancers’ Village has officially opened !


It is still a transitory structure at Sitio da Loba, which we rent for the time being, but a perfect place to start with. During spring 2019, we had some small first events of “Contact Improvisation (CI) in Nature” residencies, and opened the Dancers’ Village on 16 April 2019, after 10 years of dreaming of it.

We will have now the pre- and post Camp of our first Festival, where we meet in beautiful West Algarve, near Aljezur, on a nice land plot with garden, kitchen, terrace and inside chill area, and self-organize some dancing holidays, with lots of Contact Improvisation, beach time, cooking and enjoying beautiful nature.

We will simply share the cost (infrastructure, cars and food), maybe create a bit more structures enabling to welcome more people at this place, the incubator/predecessor of a larger dancers’ village. Read more, dates and details …

Would you like to come with a group, or co-organize some event with us? Contact us at dancersvillage@protonmail.com.

  • We look for a video editor to continue editing and publishing existing material of dance in Nature
