What is Wu Tao Dance?

Wu Tao (舞道) Dance or The Dancing Way is a beautiful combination of composed music, breath-work, energising dance & calming meditation that helps to balance and harmonise the flow of Qi or Energy, calms your mind, tones your body to improve your overall well-being. 

Wu Tao Dance has its foundations in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has five core dances, one for each of the elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Working with the meridians or energy channels in the body, Wu Tao's gentle yet effective choreographed dances free up any stagnant or blocked Qi or Energy by stretching and activating the specific meridians associated with each element.

Each dance gives the dancer an opportunity to release any blockages and reclaim a sense of deep calm and peace through gentle, easy and flowing dance movements.

No dance experience required. Everyone is a Dancer! Just your willingness to let go and surrender to the dance and movements to restore your balance and joy to your life in Perfect beauty, perfect harmony, perfect balance.

Linda Wong is a very sweet and patient coach. She is very knowledgeable on this Wu Tao Dance and had enlightened us on the flow of Chi (vital energy) and Meridians pathways. We enjoyed the dances so much that we invited her back to refresh the dances.

When we danced, we became children again, feeling young and energetic. The dances were clearly explained and we were able to dance with ease and pleasure.

Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Wu Tao Dance different to yoga or Tai Chi?

Wu Tao Dance is unique in that it uses dance as the primary way to move Qi energy through the body. Dance is movement done to music and the original music composed by Australian composer Steve Richter, has been especially designed to help stimulate the flow of energy. The dances are learned and then performed to the beautiful melodic music which corresponds with the particular energy and quality of the element for which it is used. The end result is an experience of beauty, harmony and balance, physically, energetically and mentally, during and after performing the dances.

Must I be a dancer to join Wu Tao Dance?

No dance experience required. You will be encouraged to work with your body’s own limitations and adapt the movements as necessary. It is your willingness to let go and surrender to the dance movements to restore your energy, balance and joy to your life and allow your body to enjoy the music and the dance. With steady practice over a few short months you will feel confident in your movements, with better balance, strength and improved flexibility.
