I am a long time lover of dance.
At 5 I ran around the yard in my grandmother’s polyester nightgown with a scarf flowing behind as I played “Isadora.” At 13, as captain of the cheer-leading squad, it was my job to choreograph the pom pom routines for the pep rally. I made artful pom pom experiences to the likes of Def Leppard and Ozzy.
At 17 I discovered Modern Dance and asked all the cheerleaders if they might like to try something different. This time, the school gym saw bare feet, black leotards and new wave music.
At 18 I was off to Bennington College to study where many of Modern Dance’s pioneers created. At 19 I was in NY, studying at the Martha Graham School of Dance.
I then spent the next 10 years in the theatre, living the life of the stage. I found love, marriage and children. I studied Waldorf Education and became a teacher for a short while. Then, right when I most needed it, I discovered Nia and all it has to offer. I am now a certified Blue Belt Nia teacher. I teach 4-5 Nia classes weekly. I also practice and study Soul Motion. Long live the journey!
