I believe everything can be translated into movement. I believe everyone has the ability to express themselves through movement. As a teacher of movement I enter with the goal of holding space for each dancer to discover their own authentic movement voice. My philosophy is based on body awareness and discovery to lead each dancer to explore their bodies, expression and artistic voice. I believe dance classes should inspire, challenge, and foster exploration towards continual growth. I believe that dance and movement is inseparable from daily life and by bringing more body awareness and communication with the body we can together find a more authentic and vulnerable way of interacting with the world around us.
