My movement coaching training aims to promote the benefits of both dance expression and dance technique. I create an energized environment for participants to be present with themself and/or those around them. An energy massive enough to get groups of diverse individuals to move in unison with smiles on their face all while activating their bodies, releasing toxins, and cultivating joy.

Training focuses on the significance of connecting the body to different types of music so that an ability to share a story through movement is developed. Basic to intricate movement is taught for any requested style of dance. Participants learn the proper ways of executing and perfecting various techniques to prevent injury as well as improve form.

I attended Shakira’s Caribbean dance workshop on Sunday. Shakira has so much energy to share, it’s contagious. She taught us a very sexy choreo. At the end of the workshop, we all performed and were proud of ourselves as she was able to instill a feeling of comfort and solidarity among us. I recommend her workshop to anyone who wants to learn great dance moves and have fun!
