From childhood my most ecstatic moments were related to dancing. It's in my blood and I feel this is present in all of us. Through dance I have rediscovered, transformed and healed myself.

Anand Chaitanya (2011)


I am a seeker. I seek techniques, rituals, therapies that allows me to go deep in myself, to connect with the deepest in me and with that I also seek to expand my consciousness and my ability to truly relate intimately with others. I seek the fulfillness, the pleasure, the simple joy of being.

I find within myself the willingness to surrender through dance. From childhood my most ecstatic moments were related to dancing. It's in my blood and I feel this is present in all of us. Through dance I have rediscovered, transformed and healed myself. In each dance I go one step further, one more layer, a deeper connection with me. The joy of connecting the freedom within my soul and feeling my body flowing with the music, without tension, absolutely relaxed, surrendered, vibrant... a bliss of consciousness. Anand Chaitanya means 'Consciousness Bliss'. It's no coincidence that this is the meaning of my name. In Trance Dance I feel and I am that ecstasy. Through Trance Dance I deeply connect with my inner self, my soul. My intention is to also facilitate this connection with anyone who wants to pursue it - through dance.
