The Groove is a class that unifies the participants in the same rhythm or movement and is very simple so that you may use your creativity, add your personality, while experiencing how the movement feels in the body, instead of concentrating on getting it right. Different styles of music are used to provide a wide range of movements. The Groove is more an experience than a dance class, you do not know how it feels until you have tried. :) We invite you to join, express your uniqueness and personality, on a dance floor that vibrates with creativity, depth and joy.
After more than 25 years of dance experience of all kinds, varying from hip hop to Greek folk dance, Linnéa began to crave something deeper. Something beyond memorizing choreographies and trying to look right and copying someone else. The best moments had always been outside of class, when spontaneous dance moves synced with others on the dance floor and/or when in a state of forgetting time and space and thinking ceased. How do you ”teach” that in a class? Is it possible? And how to offer classes in several different styles? She discovered The Groove in 2011 and fell in love instantly. Now she gives classes regularly in Stockholm and occasionally at festivals around Sweden. Linnéa is besides a Groove facilitator also trained in Access Consciousness and MEM (Mace Energy Method).
It began with Mattias being shown images of Shervin Boloorian on how cells and cancer cells are affected by sounds (research from the 80's by Fabien Maman). It was alleged that some sounds caused cells to light up energy-efficiently and some sounds caused cancer cells to dissolve.
This sowed a seed at Mattias who, a few years later took the decision to start playing Gong.
Mattias is now a educated Gong master and plays regularly in Nynäshamn, Stockholm and also at yoga festivals around Sweden.
