Dance has been a part of my life since I was 3 years old and I can't imagine what life would be like without it. I've lived, worked, and breathed dance as a professional as well as enjoying it as my hobby and feel extremely fortunate to continue to do so. Dance has taken me on many journeys and adventures, has opened lots of doors and has allowed me to connect and network with a wide range of people that I may never have crossed paths with had I chosen to pursue an alternative career.
The health benefits of dance and movement are undisputed and as my career has progressed I've become a huge advocate for them, for everyone not just for dancers. Not only have I experienced the benefits both physically and mentally first hand I also get the absolute pleasure of witnessing the impact that dance and movement has on the people that I am lucky to work with on a daily basis. A huge part of my work as a dance practitioner is to help both my dance students and those that attend my open classes to physically develop in strength, stamina, fitness and flexibility and as much as this is an amazing journey to be a part of I find it far more inspiring when I get the opportunity to feel the absolute joy people get from movement, to observe the moment a person in my class begins to let go of inhibition and moves from the heart, the point where they they connect with a movement, a breath or embrace a piece of music, the time they forget what has happened before they entered the studio and are empowered to dance as if they don't have a care in the world.
