Sometimes people ask me about Dance Lab – What is it? Can I actually learn how to dance? And my answer is yes, but not in the way you think.
Not in the way society has taught us – which is from the outside in.
Not from the very limited idea of who gets to be a dancer, and who doesn’t.
The way I teach is from the inside out. I teach from the point of view of wholeness – my belief in the beauty of the whole human. Darkness and Light. In Dance Lab, you can develop your skills, with out actually focusing on your skills or ‘doing it right’.
Dance Lab is about developing what I think of as the four core resources – creativity, compassion, curiosity & consciousness. These are our human super powers, available to everyone.
When we practice listening, feeling, being in a safe space, we develop these resources and the dance naturally flows from there.
You will become a better dancer, because you’ll be way more in tune with your body. Because you’ll develop your own moves, and learn to trust yourself. You’ll develop strength, rhythm, expressiveness, breath capacity, alignment.
I don’t like to teach people steps because I believe everything you need is already inside of you. Also, I’ve always preferred to improvise. My goal is to create a safe, inspiring, artistic, evocative space where you can truly listen to your body, feel your energy and express authentically what needs to be expressed.
This class is for everyone. It’s not just for “Dancers”, or “Creatives” or fit people. It’s for anyone who wants to connect with a deeper, freer aspect of their human experience. It’s a place where you get to be all yourselves. It’s a place of therapeutic release. You get a holistic personalized workout that is aligned with your true self.”
