“Dance is the most natural way to move the body and express what I am feeling within. It’s freeing, empowering & healing all at the same time. Let your body speak to you & allow your life to become a sacred dance in full joy & presence.”
In this dance class you will connect deeply with your ROOTS – the earth – your root chakra & connect with the joy of being here on this planet & celebrating life.
My own roots are from Jamaica from my mother’s side & Ragga / Dancehall is a dance style which was birthed there. There are many different foot steps to learn & many movements come from the pelvis & hips.
Ragga / Dancehall has its origin in African Dance & is influenced by HipHop. I like to cultivate a very fun and feminine Ragga style which is all about coming into your power & joy.
There will be sequences where you will be guided and learn simple steps & other sequences you will be given space to explore your free movement & flow.
Earth Dance / Tribal Earth Dance
Through guided breath & movement practices you will explore your SELF in CONNECTION to the EARTH - receive deep GROUNDING into the HERE & NOW.
Together we open the ecstatic pathways in our body & being - to FEEL the nurturing LOVE of Gaia - our mother. Allowing Kundalini Shakti to flow through us.
In this Workshop you will learn specific dance movements and also have space to follow your body’s wisdom, move freely & connect to others.
As we connect to earth we remember that we are ONE EARTH TRIBE.

Kundalini Dance (Ecstatic Chakra Dance)
A seven week journey through the chakras.
In these intuitive dance journeys you will reconnect closer to your body and essence of your being. Moving freely on the dance floor and also learning simple breath & movement keys to activate different chakras (energetic centres of our body).
It’s an extraordinary alchemical dance by which we will move energy through our bodies – with the intention to awaken Kundalini Shakti (Life Force Energy). An awakened Kundalini Shakti brings us pure bliss and strong vital life force energy. Each class is devoted to a different chakra and it’s topics. Kundalini Dance is highly transformational.
Kundalini Dance™ is an ecstatic embodiment practice for women and men of all ages and fitness levels. The requirement for anyone who is engaging in the practice is to have a deep desire for spiritual connection and personal transformation. If that soul longing for freedom is present, the keys that will be shared with you through this practice will have life changing results.

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

It’s so much fun to explore new ways to move your body.
Whilst dance is a good source of fun exercise for young children, it is also a creative outlet. Through dance, children develop a greater range of movement whilst developing the ability to work within different spaces. They learn to interpret the effect their movement has on the world around them.
