We believe movement matters and that everyone can dance.
Meet our team below.
I founded Movement for Life community group after a decade of leading community dance as an individual practitioner. As a new mother back then, I felt the need to create sanctuary-like spaces for caregivers to connect with their bodies, and to create community spaces for families to enjoy physical play together.
I’m a happier person and a better parent when I move creatively regularly in my life.
One of my favourite places to dance is in the sea!
Adam can often be seen in the background at Movement for Life, either assisting in classes, setting up and twiddling sound system knobs or as a general sounding block for the road ahead.
He’s a qualified Soul Motion teacher & CCI Co-counsellor. His teaching comes from a blend of somatic enquiry into the nature of our body felt sense and the practice of trust and being with our innate abilities as movement artists and wild beings.
Trained as a drama movement therapist and in embodied leadership, I am a lifelong lover of dance. I also love to eat dark chocolate and smell wild roses.
I support the online Movement for Well-being sessions. I deeply value how Movement For Life offers compassionate acceptance, warm welcome along with creative invitation to explore movement at your own pace.
