Winter Dance is tanz raum’s intimate dance, rhythm and meditation retreat before Christmas and the New Year.


During the time before Christmas and New Year, Ainhoa Izagirre, Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle invite you to slow down, relax, take the time to immerse yourself in silence, find and reestablish your center and to meet and move your self, to meditate, dance, make music and cook together. The three artist and teachers come with a wealth of knowledge in different fields: Egyptian yoga, Gyrokinesis®, Egyptian percussion, movement traditions in Sufism, Egyptian dance, contemporary dance, concious movement, therapeutic yoga, Doula, Manos Sintergética, and mindfulness.
