the last 23 years I have studied many types of dance
from all over the world, including hip hop, tap, jazz, ballet, samba,
salsa, and contemporary as well as healing modalities, psychology, and
natural medicine. From an early age I suffered from anxiety, depression and a harsh eating disorder and realized very young that I wanted to help people heal through dance and would often talk about it. I quit dance classes in my teenage years and resurrected my love for movement during my travels internationally to Brasil, Venezuela, Spain, France, Dominican Republic, Morocco, Greece and many other places. A passion was ignited when I realized I could connect with people in different languages without having to learn the language, but by learning their cultural dance. I also realized that dance has been a way for people to express emotions and to celebrate all over the world from the beginning of time.
As a Master Trainer StrobeDance and StrobeKids teach people how to teach these simple dance classes in their communities, fitness centers, schools and community centers!
I also teach master classes, enrichment workshops and facilitate large scale events! I have worked with many non profits doing youth leadership programs as well as programs with at risk youth. The incredible opportunities I have had working with this organisation is immense!
As a presenter I love to bring in my unique experiences to help ignite leadership and inspire people to wake up to their own brilliance.
I done events for crowds as large as 1500 people which are fun, interactive and have been really successful in helping to create community, become more confident and break down walls and barriers.
I now wake up every day and get to do what I love and create abundance from that! I am still in awe that this is possible and yet I cannot imagine another way!
I am inspired to assist people in every way that presents. My main clientelle tends to be people who are struggling with their body and relationships, as well as people who are wanting to find their own passion do what they love for a living because they are no longer satisfied with life!
In 2010 I discovered the GROOVE and after taking one class I realized its amazing ability to reach an incredible amount of people and help them have ridiculous fun and relax into their own way of moving. Teaching simple movements that everyone can do, I can get ANYONE to move their bodies to music and I love teaching new groups of people! I started teaching The GROOVE Method for Kids™ in schools after being mentored by the amazing Michelle Hillier through her program www.fit2danceinc.com. I get to teach thousands of kids a week and have taught all over Ontario, in Australia and in Kenya and we are expanding quickly.
Here is a segment from City TV's Breakfast Television of Michelle Hillier talking about our school program, and me facilitating a hip hop track with our Fit2Dance Team to 100 grade 2-5 students.Click here to watch!
I look forward to connecting and dancing with you!
