I believe in the healing power of moving and story telling, and combining the two can be an incredibly powerful experience. In 2016, I quit my non-profit job and moved to NYC to pursue my dreams of being a dancer and dance instructor. My mission is to help others process and express their story through movement in a safe, supportive, and fun environment. 

However, I've been here for a year and realized that trying to make a living and pay my rent has meant that dancing and training has taken a backseat as I run around trying to walk as many dogs as possible and manage a dance teacher training program. I am starting this Patreon so that I can work on my movement without stressing quite so much about how I'll be able to pay my bills. Patreon will help me set aside time in my schedule guilt-free, allowing me to focus on movement and production. 

By joining my community of movers and shakers, you'll get access to behind-the-scenes footage, early releases of upcoming stories, and the ability to weigh in on concepts and ideas. I will be combining my studies and experience in dance, international studies, and trauma healing to document how storytelling is conveyed through dance, whether that's passing down cultural knowledge or part of a healing process. I'll also share tips and ideas for ways you can improve your own movement, even if you are not a dancer. I can't thank you enough for joining me on this healing journey!

I am hoping to return to Ghana and study dance at the Dagara Music Center this Summer! I would love to document some of their amazing dances. More information on the program is here:
