Why we dance

Dance is one of the oldest forms of healing arts.  Dance guides us to embrace ourselves with compassionate acceptance, by trusting the innate healing power of the body.  Our dance practice is a like a moving meditation, where we get to explore our movements from the inside out. There is no wrong way of dancing as this is a dance practice for personal healing and growth. The dance component of this group program is therapeutic in nature, it is meant to support you in re-connecting you to your body, you don’t need dance experience, it is not about how you dance, specific dance steps or skill level.

Testimonial

“Being in circle has allowed me to explore the parts of me that don’t yet have words and uncover them through movement, all within the safety and support of an incredible group of women. This circle has lefts me feeling excited for the possibilities to come in my life”.
