Theater of the Soul

December 18-24

Zuza’s ability to almost magically bring people to a sense of community is stunning. This is belonging that does not require a sacrifice of individuality but makes space for each person to be safe and to shine. 


The dance is my refuge– the inner temple as an eternal sanctuary always to return to. The more comfortable I feel in the solo dance the more alive I am with others.
I feel as if when I am facing the unknown in my life there is a force I can depend on.

- Isa

The aliveness I experience on Zuza’s dance floor gives me such a sense of my personal creativity that I am empowered in all aspects of my life. The drama in my life has decreased because, when it arises, I skip, leap and spiral over and around it.

-  Barbara Brannon – Artist Rep

The practice has allowed me to be more present in my work and at home. I’ve learned to observe more and speak less in relationship with my teenagers. I drop into the moment and feel my body which allows me to respond, rather than react. 

- Elizabeth Crowley – Advanced Bodyworker, Movement Teacher, Mom

Zuza creates a magic space for the participants which is rooted in her big heart and seems to expand endlessly into the open sky! She is a truly trustworthy leader who is walking (dancing) her talk. 

- Romana Tripolt (psychologist, psychotherapist, 5rhythm teacher
