The event

Before the Dance, there is the Breath.

By breathing, we can access a state of relaxed alertness, we can reduce anxiety, get in touch with our BodyVoice and really feel ourselves flowing.

In this "state of grace" the girl in us, our purest and most authentic part, can finally find a sacred and protected place to live, expressing herself in the utmost presence.


The DANCED BREATH happens when we dance without wanting to "dance", when we let the dance happen, with all its luminous and generating force.

In a meditative state of contemplation and falling in love, we will be able to transform ourselves through lived experience, opening up to the new and elaborating emotions and feelings "stuck" in our body, giving them a shape and a name, where ideality and reality generate infinite dialogues .



Simonetta Ottone


BIO, short notes:

Professional Dancer and Dance Actress, Dance movement therapist, Trainer, Choreographer and Teacher of dance and movement since 1990. She studied Psychology, Founder of the Compagnia DanzArte Association (1997), author of shows, articles and publications on Dance.

Creator and co-founder of DANCE TO LIVE® DANCE THERAPY METHOD, currently in circulation in Italy and Egypt.

Her idea of dance has to do with the sincere, free and original self-expression in relation to the surrounding world. Dance is an opportunity to investigate one's consciousness, it is a sacred and extraordinary way of meditation and celebration of life, and a powerful means of healing.


The language proposed by Simonetta integrates Body and Voice, taking root in the vitality of Modern and Contemporary Dance, in TeatroDanza, in Dance Therapy, in the heritage of Ethnic and Circle Dances.

Her groups encourage you to bring Art, Creativity and Spirituality into your life and to share them with others.
