Dance
and
  Movement

In every culture, dance is a powerful means of expression, collaboration, and community building. Through creative movement we bring our stories and traditions forward in an embodied way to connect more deeply with ourselves, with others, and with the divine in all of us.

Workshops

Collaborative Dance Making

empowers people of all abilities, regardless of prior dance training to express their unique creative voice in collaboration with others. Participants create and develop movement motifs on a theme and depending on the intention of the group, learn to use choreographic craft to create simple studies or fully produced dance works.

This progressive approach to dance composition has been used over ten years with professionals, college and high school students, and non-dancers to foster community and creative connection. The article  "Collaborative Dance Making: Philosophy and Practice" was published in the journal Dance Education in Practice.

"You gave me the opportunity to learn about and discover dance in a way I have never been able to before.

Learning from you has completely changed my life."  - John B.

Moving the Moment

are workshops designed to help participants of all abilities connect more deeply with their bodies and to release the places where stress is held. These group sessions incorporate imagery, mindful moving and creative dance to facilitate wellness through physical, emotional and spiritual integration. Each class has a similar format but focuses on a particular theme: 

Time In: Avoiding Burnout with Balance

Always Bend Never Break: Flexibility is Key to Resilience

Beyond Fight or Flight: Countering Adrenalin with Endorphins

Hydrating the Parched Heart: Held Emotions Cause Physical Stress

Moving Your Moment are individual sessions tailored to the needs of the client.

"The wonderful Moving the Moment session was very helpful to me to gain relaxation and meditation strategies, and connect them to movements that I will remember. " - Nancy S.

Isadora Duncan Dance

 "The dances of Isadora Duncan performed by Janaea Rose Lyn will linger in the memories of audiences...transformed with such tenderness of gesture, particularly an extremely beautiful and bewitching sequence with rose petals."  - Glos Wielpolska, Poland
