My Dance story–
Dance and creative movement have always been a part of my life. As a young child I remember feeling so free & empowered by dancing. As I was growing up I took lessons in Jazz, Ballet, Belly Dance, Irish dance, Contemporary & Creative Movement. I loved learning the technique & lines of the body from my Ballet & Jazz classes while the free movement that was encouraged in Creative & Contemporary classes was a strong avenue for expression for me.
Having spent time training & working in the professional dance industry I always had a problem with the mentality & energy associated with that environment. There was (& still is) so much competitiveness, bullying & mental health instability. I found that I was surrounded by people who claimed to love dancing but were doing so in such a toxic atmosphere that I personally felt any love or enjoyment was cancelled out.
What I offer-
I now design contemporary dance & creative movement workshops for adults. These sessions provide the opportunity to dance, move & be freely expressive. Whilst some technique is taught, as it is an important element of dance, I teach these workshops in a way that allows for plenty of creative personal expression in a non-judge-mental & safe environment.
These workshops are a fantastic way of allowing many adults the chance to reconnect with their own inner creativity & joy.
Dancers/movers of all abilities & experience are welcome & catered for.
