Holistic Dance Language with Zola Dubnikova in Ibiza
Call of the Heart. Return to Ecstasy
We are so happy to welcome Zola Dubnikova for the first time in Ibiza! We will gather for a 3-day-non-residential workshop in the beautiful La Nave Ibiza.
We take a sacred dance journey together inspired by
temple dance, taoist and tantric lineages across Asia, Sufi traditions across the middle east and evolutionary body practices of the contemporary western age. Drawing from mystical dance traditions across the Middle East, the Mediterranean, India, North Africa and beyond, we combine inner practices and powerful movement sequences, diving into an innovative, empowering vocabulary of the holistic dance language. We take a journey to open our hearts, connect to our pelvis, to the earth and to breath/voice. We release blocked energy and build inner power. We open the body and the heart to deep strength and softness. We experience a healing ceremony which opens the heart, releases the pelvis, strengthens the core, roots the feet and moves the soul. We dance the trance of release, letting go of what we don’t want to hold in the body; we listen to our inner voice; we take a journey together to build inner strength & release the body toward deeper freedom. In a space where only women are present, a unique safety exists enabling us to go even deeper into some of these practices.
About the Holistic Dance Language:
Although Zola's work is deeply informed by years of immersion into cultural traditional dance forms, all of her offerings contain a language beyond culture and time ~ Pleasurable embodiment, diverse physicality, subtle body language, ritual movement and inner alchemy are the main elements of the holistic dance language curriculum. Informed by ancient tradition, seeped in contemporary somatic/body science, infused with movement medicine and immersed in sacred dance inspired across time and worlds, the practices revive our hidden (forgotten) abilities, creating pathways of remembrance in the body. Through the practices, we have the power of complete metamorphosis and enhanced communication at our fingertips. The earth-based foundational work guides us to trust the ground beneath us more, deepen our roots and “fly” from a supported place. Connecting to our pelvis, to the earth and to our voice gives us deeper roots. Connecting to the heart, we open the sky. Through the work we access deep softness, grace and potent strength. We release blocked energy, and build inner power. We learn a unique vocabulary of movement, mudra and subtle energetic principles. Though a combination of slowed inner listening, breath/sound work, focused practice, and liberating trance-inducing movement, we bring our prayers to the physical world, planting the seeds of our dreams, our deepest missions, within every cell of our bodies.
Zola Dubnikova bridges sacred dance, movement medicine, contemporary body science, masterful form, somatic awareness and ritual through her unique approach which she calls the “Holistic Dance Language.” Her extensive background fused with absolute devotion to the pursuit of dance as an ecstatic, spiritual experience, has birthed a unique style of both teaching & performing – which truly embodies the marriage between form and spirit. Trained extensively in contemporary dance forms and healing arts as well as Odissi Temple Dance Tradition, Sufi tradition, Mevlana whirling practices, Dances of the Silk Road , the gypsy trails and beyond, her style brings forth the wisdom of ancient dance ritual through a holistic lense intended to guide more people in accessing their divine capabilities. Zola travels often throughout the world to give seminars, offer workshops and guide experiences, as well as performing both as a soloist and with esteemed musicians across the world.
