A FEW WORDS FROM JUAN
"I am passionately committed to teaching and spreading "Dance Whispering" and how we can use it as a vehicle to partner dance with: consent, respect, connection and mindfulness. Dance Whispering is a Mutualistic Symbiotic model of partner dancing that the planet so desperately needs. Dance Whispering is what I call the system of teaching and dancing that I practice, utilize and teach. I have spent the last 22 years studying, teaching and holding workshops so that the Dance Whispering Model has many advocates, teachers and practitioners. It is my life's work. Dance Whispering uses techniques from multiple dances as well as other fields such as Neuroscience, Psychology, Anatomy, Philosophy, Yoga, Meditation and more. Dance Whispering allows the participants to truly connect to themselves, the music, and their partners at a more profound level making leading, following, partnering, connecting effortlessly."
