*****What is Dancing Freedom?*****
Dancing Freedom is a conscious dance practice to support living in oneness with ourselves, each other, the earth and the cosmos. A free-form somatic practice that blends the medicine of dance with the medicine of ceremony and co-creation. Dancing freedom takes you on a guided dance journey through an elemental wave of Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether - deepening your connection to life.
In the dance, you are invited to explore an authentic way of moving - a creative expression of your unique being. There is only one rule in Dancing Freedom - you can't do it wrong! In the process of free movement with the structure of a wave pattern, it is possible to become a free flow of energy, moving into oneness, beyond the mind, personality and ego, to drop deeply into presence.
Conscious dance provides an opportunity to release physical tension and pain, to free energy in the body, to express emotions and sounds, to connect with others, to play and to remember that you LOVE to dance!💃
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?” Gabrielle Roth - Founder of 5 Rhythms Dance

Her journey as a holistic practitioner began 30 years ago as a Yoga teacher and organically evolved into Massage Therapy, Naturopathy and Conscious Dance. In 2016, she discovered 5 rhythms dance on retreat with Gina Chick and became a passionate advocate for conscious dance.

Her passion is connection, connection to the innate healing power of the body, connection in community, co-creating and supporting each other, connection to oneself, your whole loving being, so worthy of self-love and creative expression.
