I left the class feeling refreshed, aligned with myself and smiling.
I am a life-long dancer. My Mom always says that I was dancing before I could walk. Eye-hand coordination is not one of my strengths. But I can dance. I think my tennis racket has a hole in it. But I can dance. I have been known to trip over air in my living room. But I can dance. If dance is absent from my life, everything looks a little darker...
It was during one of these darker periods of my life that I took my first Nia class with Jill Pagano. The light came back! The combination of dance, martial arts, healing arts was a revelation to me. It was FUN! I didn't have to perform. I could just DANCE. The practice was the practice. And the community! So open and welcoming. So positive and supportive. I loved it. After practicing for a year and a half, I felt the pull of the White Belt. I wanted to learn more. I don't know when I made the conscious decision to teach, but I taught my first class at a women's retreat in August of 2014. I have been stepping in as a substitute for the lovely teachers at the Center for Movement and Healing in West Seattle ever since.
I look forward to DANCING with YOU soon!
