SUMMER DANCE HOLIDAY
with Guy Barrington and Saryo van Lakerveld
„Are you longing like me for holidays with best friends? Do you wish for meeting open and tuned people, indulge your body with waves of joy, health and enthusiasm through dance and movement?
I DO with all my heart!
Summer is the time of relax and ease for me, I would like to give to myself even not-doing and summer easy going time but also going on a trip, walking through forest or swimming in a pond. I have lots of friends who feel it the same way. And lots of them have children and they wish to spend summer holidays together and integrate them into loving and joyful environment. They want to enjoy time for themselves as well as full present moments with their families.
And that is why I initiate this summer holidays to indulge ourselves with a week full of dance, movement and relax. To give ourselves a break from stuffed self-development seminars, to get to know new friends, to enjoy it even with the kids and to enjoy the lightness, joy and relax. Come with us to Celebrate Life!“
Šárka Kmochová, Initiator of dance holidays
Each morning and each evening we will be guided by dance magicians through a wave of dance, encounter and celebration via movement. Afternoons are left free for relax, trips, not-doing and swimming. In the morning and in the evening the various programmes will be prepared for the kids. On two afternoons during the week a special kids entertainment afternoon full of experience will be organised.

We are sorry to all international friends – we are not able to prepare a bi-lingual children programme. We can only accept czech speaking children.
Children do have their own programme while adults are dancing. Only in the morning, until 11am, children can join the community gathering and dance with us.
Guy has been facilitating Biodanza for the last 15 years in UK, Holland, Ireland, Norway, Denmark, France, Czech Republic, and over the last 3 years in Sweden. He brings his Love of Life and passion for the Dance in an accessible way, so all may be enriched by the experience of discovering and living from a deeper sense of Home within themselves. His studies also include Shamanism, Tantra, Conscious Parenting, Creative process, Mediation and Meditation, Conflict resolution and Self empowerment all of which he weaves into the Dance…
„My passion in life is dance and music. I enjoy my own dance as well as those of others. Simply being in motion gives me an immense sense of freedom and the effect the dance has on anyone’s life keeps surprising me. My life is aimed at creating space wherever necessary and this is something I also try to get across in my teaching sessions. In order to examine this I have learned, from being a father of two beautiful daughters, to provide an atmosphere of safety and protection.“
Saryo devoted his 17 years of life to 5 rhythms dance and 11 years from that time as an accredited teacher. Nowadays he runs a dance society Terra Nova in the Netherlands. He gives all his heart into teaching and dancing.
