Dance Healing Training

Transform stagnancy into creative power.

"There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy." 

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Dance is innately healing when we move with non-judgmental awareness, a solid somatic toolkit and a brave space to witness our unfolding.

We intentionally restore "dance" to its roots - an ancient art form that is our birth right. An accessible practice that is inseparable from our voice, community and authenticity.


We compost the notion of right / wrong and restore dance as fertile grounds for transformation.

Our body remembers everything and contains a wellspring of resources for your personal and collective healing.

This training transcends the physical to include the emotional, mental and spiritual layers of self to re-align us with our wholeness.

Awaken your inherent body wisdom.

Channel your intuition through drawing, writing, movement & spoken word.

Cultivate inner balance physically, emotionally and mentally.

Create a container for transformation.

Amplify personal + collective healing.


In this space we honor that

All parts of us are worthy of being seen, freed and reintegrated into the wholeness of our being.

Every body is born a dancer / artist and has the birthright to express themselves with their innate body intelligence.

Your body is the teacher and you have full permission to listen to your inner "yes" and "no" throughout the training.

We find new edges and gifts when we work in community that we simply cannot do alone.

Non-violent communication supports us to heal and transform responsibly and with accountability.
