Welcome

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.

Outlook 2020 – new horizons

Building on the experiences of 2019

In 2019, we were enjoying and taking care of the transitory structure at Sitio da Loba, which was rented and still a large investment. The structure allowed us to organize 3 “Contact Improvisation (CI) in Nature” residencies, and in this way to officially open the Dancers’ Village and its activities, after 10 years of evolution of ideas.

With this structure and at the Temple of the Earth, we organized our first Contact Festival, meeting in beautiful West Algarve, and added pre- and post-Camps, essentally dancing holidays, with lots of Contact Improvisation, beach time, cooking and enjoying beautiful nature.

throughout 2020

Would you like to co-organize some event with us? Contact us at dancersvillage@protonmail.com.

We will found a new association which will help us to give a legal frame to such projects.

We will continue to prepare the first big project with a crowd funding for our project in Aljezur, Portugal. More projects to follow.

If you wish to help, let us know by writing to dancersvillage@protonmail.com.
