Dance has always been an important part of my life. One of my favourite memories of myself as a child is dancing alone, and feeling so free and connected to who I was. Today I can recognise that feeling as an embodied experience in which I felt whole and fully present. That feeling never left me.
Having danced my way throughout my life eventually becoming a dancer and teacher amongst other things. The importance of dance became less about the professional aesthetic of dance itself and more about the freedom of spirit it gave me, my clients and students. Time and time again, dancing felt like it was healing something.
Convinced of this, in 2009 I embarked on Masters course in Dance Movement Psychotherapy, with the sole purpose of wanting to understand the power of dance. What I discovered, is dance and movement is inherently a source of healing because our minds and bodies are interconnected.
As such, my companies programmes and projects are all underpinned by and aims to reflect my fundamental belief in dance as a transformative and therapeutic medium of creativity and self-expression. My experience of being a therapist, dancer, teacher, researcher and project developer, has lent itself to creating innovative and bespoke programmes for a wide range of clients in education, health, community and professional dance settings.
