EDUCATION FOR LIFE 

Biodanza in the world 

As a human development system, currently Biodanza is used in many countries in health care facilities, social services, education and business. It is recognized as a human technology with numerous applications and possibilities ranging from their use as promotional activity towards health and wellness, therapy and clinical intervention, as well as a method of social action.

Biodanza in UK 

The educational, therapeutic and social effects have been so obvious that more and more people seek Biodanza, from the point of view of human development in regular groups, either from a professional point of view completing their careers - teachers, nurses, doctors, therapists , psychologists - or starting a new career, the Biodanza facilitator. 

Aims 

The IBF Rolando Toro School of Biodanza is dedicated to train Biodanza teachers according to the theoretical model created by Rolando Toro Araneda. The school also promotes Biodanza in schools, universities and institutions as a human development system and also promotes social/clinical work using Biodanza. Our school is committed to: develop global human potential teaching art and science (Biodanza) in joy and to learn by experience and to discover the world and transform it - to confront the needs and challenges of the complex times in which we live . To accelerate and stimulate talent, and innovate and motivate students to be lovers of life, unique and creative, passionate and intelligently affective. It is an Education for Life, for affection and learning to be happy. 

Training Programme 

The training course in Biodanza has a minimum duration of three years, consisting of 28 modules, and also conferences and seminars related to the theoretical basis with the Biodanza system, a resume/report on the theme of each module, supervisions in the third year, and a monography presentation at graduation. Each module is theoretical and experiential and with a training manual by Rolando Toro Araneda. 

 1. Theoretical Studies Is the study of theory of Biodanza and its foundations in relation to the life sciences. Theoretical subjects are offered in the order indicated in the Single Programme Teacher Training of Biodanza. The student must present in successive modules, a brief resume/report of each particular module. The goal is to train students to correctly express the theoretical concepts of Biodanza through their own speech/expression.

2. Conference The conferences/seminars will be held at intervals throughout the course and may be presented by a group of students. 

 3. Deepening Experiential Deepening experiential individually and in groups (Biodanza workshops). During the training modules will be given great importance to the relationship between the experiences and theoretical issues discussed. It is very important that the student participates , in parallel, in a weekly group of Biodanza to deepen experiences. Where there is no weekly Biodanza teacher it is recommended that the student attend experiential (workshops) events as often as possible. 

 4. Methodology The unique Biodanza Training Programme contains seven modules of methodology. The goal of methodology modules is that the student in training is equipped to perform their task. 

 5. Supervised Classes Practical experience presenting weekly groups of Biodanza under the supervision of a Didactic teacher of Biodanza, with a minimum of 8 supervision classes . Supervision can only begin with the School Director's permission. 

 6. Social Action Students can optionally perform, under supervision, social action in the population using Biodanza ie: various groups and institutions, retirement groups, child protection etc 

 7. Monograph The student will prepare a monography/thesis on a theoretical or practical aspect of Biodanza. The monograph will be carried out with guidance of a Didactic Teacher 

 8. Graduation It is the submission of the thesis/monography before a panel of Didactic Teachers and will be organised by the School of Biodanza in which the student belongs. This event will be open to the public. When the monography is approved the student will have completed their training and can teach Biodanza. 

 9. Diploma Teacher of Biodanza For the teaching Diploma degree all stages of the training programme will have been completed by the student and the student will enrol with the International Biocentric Foundation that will provide Professional Registration.
