Wisdom of Dance

LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF DANCE

Meet the creators of Wisdom of Dance, Benny Maslov and Jane Martin:

THE CONCEPT

Welcome to Wisdom of Dance! A place where we draw parallels between dance and life. Borrowing from the lessons we learn on the dance floor to apply them in our daily life and relationships with others.

Get ready to start a physical and psychological journey that will lead you to self-awareness while empowering your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Reduce stress and anxiety, improve your confidence and mood, and find your inner balance while learning the language of dance!

As a team/company, build new relationships on the dance floor with your bosses, colleagues or employees. Learn how to communicate better and become more productive together in an enjoyable way, and apply the concepts of leading and following in your everyday life at the office.

Learn how to communicate and interact with your loved ones on another level on the dance floor and then apply what you have learnt in your everyday life. Acquire new problem-solving skills and strengthen your most important relationships in a fun and effective way.

Take your usual night out to the next level! Experience a mix of social and physical activities with your friends or come along and join our workshops to meet and have fun with like-minded individuals. Learn how to interact more effectively with others and yourself while learning the language of dance.
