At the root of all the various manifestations of dancing lies the common impulse to resort to movement to externalize emotional states which we cannot externalize by rational means.

Let’s co-create a space where we can feel comfortable to be our full selves, celebrate body diversity and build a community that uplifts and supports one another!

All body sizes are welcome.

My movement influences come from yoga, various contemporary dance styles like release technique, hip hop, house and various African and Latin dance styles.

I donate monthly to Hip Hop for Change who teaches empowerment through hip hop education and creates an important platform for self expression. This is one of the ways I give back to the black community from which so much of my dance influence comes from.

This class is a little less stop and teach, a little more flow, a little more authentic expression and room for you to find your own groove.

Dancing your full self is powerful and dancing your full self within a community is even more powerful. 

Let’s come together with a focus on supporting and uplifting one another and listening to our body and soul’s urge for movement. Be seen and bear witness. Let’s break through oppressive messages around how you should or shouldn’t move or how you should or shouldn’t look. 

This class doesn’t easily fit in a category or genre and it is primarily created for folx who would call themselves an experienced mover with some level of comfort moving and grooving.

Class may be experienced as complicated and too fast paced if you are new to dance. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

This mini movement experience will provide you a structure for which you can find your own groove. It’s all about empowerment, celebrating our bodies, and breaking down oppressive ideas about how we should or shouldn’t be moving!

My movement influences come from yoga, various contemporary dance styles, hip hop, house and various other African and Latin dance styles.

No dance experience is necessary and all ethnicities, body sizes, ages and genders are welcome!
