DANCE ‘N’ DINE: PRACTICING SELF-LOVE THROUGH MOVEMENT AND COMMUNITY WITH THERAPY OF DANCE & SHE SHE RETREATS
When dancer and choreographer Elise Mireille moved to Berlin, she struggled to find an outlet for dancing outside club culture. So she started the community she was missing in the city: Therapy of Dance, a weekly high-energy hip-hop dance class interwoven with therapy. Every Thursday, a growing group of women convene to reflect and share stories before translating that energy into choreography to the tune of feel-good hits. Inspiring confident self-expression and fostering mental health is equally important to Albertine van Iterson of She She Retreats, which organizes getaways and events dedicated to holistic wellbeing in Mallorca and Berlin. This Saturday (13.4.2019), they’re joining forces for Therapy of Dance ‘n’ Dine, combining the healing energy of movement with a vegetarian, local and seasonal meal from Julia Heifer at LOK6. “It’s an experience of self-growth, an investment in yourself and an act of self-love,” say Elise and Albertine. “There’s no judgment here. Women of all levels, sizes and ages are welcome.” (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Pascal Rohé, Bennie Julia Gay & Patricia ruiz del Portal)
