"Wu Tao Dance is a powerful dance meditation system that will calm your mind, energise and tone your body and bring you to a place where you can be free of stress and experience the stillness of your own being. We call it Deep Peace."

Wu Tao – the 'tai chi dance'

Welcome to the home page of Wu Tao – the Dancing Way®. Wu Tao is a unique fusion of music, meditation and dance therapy training. It combines the healing power of music, the calming and rejuvenating power of meditation and the strengthening, energising power of dance in a single modality that is now practiced by thousands of people across Australia and around the world. Wu Tao is the best dance therapy course for those with restricted movement or different abilities, as the dances are simple, easy to follow and can be adapted to your individual needs. They are focused more on smooth, flowing movements and bodily control than visually striking movements; though full of grace and energy, Wu Tao dances won't see you leaping around and putting stress on muscles and joints. You can find out more about the dance itself here. We invite you to find your closest instructor or Wu Tao event, and experience the benefits for yourself.

Dear Michelle, I have had feedback from the staff who were present (at the Wu Tao Classes held by Karen Armstrong) and it is extremely good. Some of the residents enjoyed the classes immensely. T, one of our younger residents benefited greatly and it was a great comfort to him… The music and gentle repetitive body motions certainly had a calming effect on the residents as a whole. Karen, had a beautiful and gracious manner and the residents responded to her gentle and compassionate care and concern for them. Michelle I would appreciate your passing on our thanks to Karen.
