As a kid, infused by the rich and soulful tunes of my parents’ vast vinyl collection, it was early impressed upon me that music is the language of the Soul’s expression. Studying Anthropology and English in New Orleans, I was further steeped in music, folklore, storytelling, and mystery. Traveling extensively through South East Asia, I discovered Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation and set out on a lifelong inquiry exploring how consciousness, sound, and creative movement shape our physiology.
Facilitating Ecstatic Dance for me is a super-fun, artistic celebration of 2 decades uniting a deeply devoted movement practice with my cultivated skills as a nationally, and internationally acclaimed bodyworker and Somatic Educator. Incorporating the archetypal languages of mythology, astrology, and tarot into the waves of my practice has given me a fluency in different states of consciousness, and a keen awareness of multi-dimensional expression.
I am most intrigued by dance that happens, rather than the kind where you count out the steps, I have never been able to do that. Dance that transcends pattern and form. Dance that purifies, undulates, creates, cries, laughs, and plays, igniting the Soul to animate this magnificent temple that is the human form.
While every dance I offer is unique, I weave common threads through rich tapestries of sound that encourage you to tap into your innate frequencies of love and happiness, tune into the unique-NESS of your individual expression, turn on to the innate creativity within you, and bring this forth into your relationships and our community to be shared.
