“Shall we dance?” – Dancing Communities for businesses

Promote communication, stimulate a creative team dynamic and resolve conflicts at work

A very effective tool to create productive and creative teams

Dancing Communities is an innovative approach based on the Dulaine educational method which was created 17 years ago by the internationally renowned dancer and choreographer Pierre Dulaine.

It uses ballroom dancing as a way to encourage the valorization of the individual and to foster respect, listening and mutual support between individuals and groups.

Today, companies are often faced with the economic and human burden of the problems related to stress at work (absenteeism, burnout, lack of motivation). The lack of trust between colleagues and the interpersonal conflicts are among the major causes of the decline in efficiency and productivity.

When conflicts, competition and the pressure to perform impede collaboration, “Shall we dance?” is a very effective way to unite teams.
Through a joyful, simple and accessible method, participants discover new ways to interact that go beyond their social and professional status.
With a framework that encourages to overcome prejudices, barriers fall enabling the discovery of the humanity of our dance partner beyond its hierarchical position. Thus “Shall we dance?” helps to strengthen professional relationships and to boost confidence and self-esteem which are often undermined during interpersonal conflicts.
Therefore, the program has a direct impact on employee as well as teams motivation and creativity. Thus, productivity and innovation are positively influenced.
