Music is a vehicle to experience the world. It is a creative expression that stirs our emotions
and kindles the Divine Fire inside each one of us. Awaken to its potency. Surrender to its rhythms.
Experience its cultures through feeling its language in your body. Allow the music to move you!
Dance the World
My love of exploring culture through the mediums of dance and music
have guided me to learn their expression, one dance at a time. Through
the years I have accumulated a collection of some of my favourites that I like to combine in a World Dance class.
This dynamic fitness class will take you on a journey around the
world where you will experience the 'Element', each dance represents.
Earth, Fire, Water, Air or Ether will awaken inside you as you attune your body, mind and spirit to the music of the culture represented. Its experience is sure to bring a smile to your face, a suppleness to your body and an inspiration to your spirit.
In my love also to study and give reverence to the sacred within dances of the world, I have created a meditative dance incorporating the ancient southern Indian Temple Dance of Bharatanatyam. Together in circle and community we will dance its repetitive pattern and sing its chant as we let our spirits soar!
To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking." Agnes De Mille
Let's Dance the World Together !
Dance The World
In this session we will travel together to the Hawaiian islands, warming and toning the abs, hips and thighs with the fluid Water movements of Hula. Then we will loosen the body, plant our bare feet and surrender our bodies to the vibrant rhythms of African music, mirroring movements of life, animals, the sun and moon in the expression of Earth and Fire.
Visiting India we will connect with the elements of Ether and Air as we learn hand mudras of ancient Classical Indian Dance while combining the cinematic stylings of Indian Bollywood. Then it's off to the Pujab in the northern part of India where we will dance Bhangra to the irresistible beat of the Earthy dohl drum, all the while learning dynamic dance steps sure to elevate your cardio and get your whole body moving!
Kindling The Sacred Fire Within
Women, I invite you to share the ritual of dance with me as I guide you into the 'Inner Temple of Your Divine Essence' summoning the Mystic Goddess within you to partake in the profound mysteries that lie within.
Incorporating step patterns and hand mudras of the ancient and classical form of the Indian Dance, Bharatanatyam, with its integrity having been preserved in the temples of southern India, you will learn a dance to awaken the ancient, embrace the present and enlighten your future.
Together we will circle in meditative repetition and chant to Celebrate the Spirit of our Divine Inner Union.
