Space for everyone.
Inclusivity is the core belief that drives our organization's mission to create space for everyone.
We believe that dancers come in all shapes, sizes, and designs and we hope to continue to open doors in every corner of the world so everyone has the chance to experience the healing joy that comes from moving our bodies. Students should walk away feeling enriched by our classes and empowered by their new found connection with mind and body.
With 7+ years experience in teaching dance to students from diverse populations and communities across the US and Canada, We also aim to create Instructors or ambassadors who can thrive in inclusive environments and continue to spread our mission and vision of creating space wherever space is needed.
