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.
I now create Contemporary & Jazz workshops, classes & performance opportunities for adults to dance, move & express themselves simply for the love & enjoyment of dance. While technique is taught, as it is an important element of dance, I teach these classes in a way that allows for plenty of personal expression in a non-judge-mental & safe environment.
Dancers & movers of all abilities & experience are welcome!
