Dance with Awareness to Music that Moves You in a Safe & Accepting Space

Upcoming Events:

  • May 4, 2019 6pm-8pm

Heart & Core Yoga Studio, Cortez, CO


No registration required. $15 drop-in.

  • June 23, 2019 10:30am - Noon

    Smiley Building, Rm 115, Durango, CO

Come join our growing dance tribe in SW Colorado. Conscious dance is good for the mind, body and spirit. It offers a way to increase self-acceptance, find joy in movement, express emotions, move energy, reduce stress, discover freedom and ease in the body and expand our movement vocabulary - all in an environment that is a safe container for you to move big or small, or any way at all.

I taught NIA and fell in love with the FreeDance component. I have spent the last 6 years exploring 5Rhythms, Ecstatic Dance, Authentic Movement and other conscious movement forms. I combine elements of these different traditions into a comfortable, fun, safe and easy atmosphere with great music that will move your mind, body and soul.
