About Bindu Creative Dance


“Bindu” symbolizes the point from which all creation emerges and into which it dissolves.

Every week, an environment for the creative dance is created through the collaboration of elements that unify into a theme:-a dance space enhanced with colour, texture and objects, evocative music, engaging & eclectic props (scarves, buckets, shells etc) and gentle guidance through the dance adventure from Mangala Studios trained teacher Lisa Sommerlad.

  • Creative Dance has its foundations in yoga
  • Self-expression and artistic exploration of the senses are at the heart of every class.
  • Creative dance is joyful, strengthening the mind, spirit and physical body.
  • Fine and gross motor skill development is an integral aspect of the dance.
  • A friendly, non-competitive social activity for all ages of children


Creative Dance is  highly acclaimed within educational and health care sectors for its effectiveness in facilitating creativity, physical self-expression and self-esteem for children of all ages.

Mangala Studios was established in 1970 by Dorotea Mangiamele, who through her experience and innovation evolved a vision for creative dance that is still nurtured by teachers today.
