IBF Biodanza Congress 2016 -  The Netherlands

Opening vivencia at the IBF European Biodanza Congress in 2016

We loved organising the IBF European Biodanza Congress in 2016.... We danced with 1000 people coming from Europe, Chile, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Israel, Australia, Japan, Argentina, USA, Canada, Colombia, New Zealand, Nigeria...... a total of 38 countries. We connected people from all over the world and therefor we loved to organise another event to dance with the world in 2018....the first Biodanza World Encounter on Bali. The next Biodanza World Encounter on Bali will be in 2020.

Hotel and location

We found a beautiful hotel in the spiritual center of Bali, near Ubud. Do not expect a Grand Hyatt or other luxurious hotel....but envision a very traditional style Balinese hotel. We reserved rooms in the "The Mansion Baliwood Resort Hotel and Spa"  with beautiful pools and gardens. The place has a nice tranquil "Zen atmosphere". When you reserve your hotel rooms quickly, we can have the whole hotel for ourselves.


The hotel is developed like a little village and offers different room options. Ubud is 15 minutes by shuttlebus and you can walk in the nearby rice fields. This hotel is the perfect place for relaxing, dancing, walking and a perfect retreat with fellow Biodanceros from around the world.
