Dance Therapy 508 &
For me...Music is medicine ....dancing is therapy. My mother put me in ballet and tap classes at the age of three. As I got older I started exploring other styles of dance such as belly dancing, hip hop and West African.
I currently train with Junior Cius, an amazing hip hop dancer and choreographer from Boston . I also study under Carl Alleyne, founder of Boston Mobile Dance Studio and founder of the Beantown Lockers. For 10+ years I've danced with Tara Murphy and Cape Cod African Dance and Drum, a West African dance ensemble. I am now a dancer for Benkadi, a West African dance company out of Boston. Currently I am in the process of creating my own dance group "Soul Cold" which is soon to make a debut.
I have created Dance Therapy 508 to provide a fun energetic environment where everybody is encouraged to turn up and have a good time. I feel dance is a way to express myself, release energy & emotion , relieve stress , release bad toxins.....its my outlet . The idea of Dance Therapy 508 is to help you get fit, have fun and most of all feel confident. I don't care if you can't dance well, just get up and dance. I know it can be nerve wracking, but one thing I've learned to do is laugh at myself and that's exactly what I do when I find myself having a dance blooper. I cringe at the sight of people standing around in a dance class or on the dance floor. It's all about feeling the music, finding your groove and creating YOUR vibe. Dancing also has many benefits that will help you feel good such as strengthening bones & muscles, reducing stress & tension, improving posture, increasing stamina & flexibility and warding of illness like diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporis and depression. I encourage everyone of all shapes, ages and sizes to take a class, participate in a workshop or book Dance Therapy 508 for a party or event. As a dancer there is always more to learn, there is always room for growth.. I will continue my education in dance and fitness so I can teach to the best of my ability & share valuable knowledge with my students. Being able to share what I love to do is a blessing and I invite you to come on my journey with me.
