About the facilitator-
Having a background in Science, Psychology, Nutritional Medicine, Fitness, Massage and Movement, Angela’s brings forth her passion for dance as a transformative practice which we can use to learn, grown and develope personally and collectively. Her love for dance began as a child where she used to dance at home to her favorite beats on cassette (shows how old i am). It was only when she set foot on the consious dance floor did she realise that dance was medicine. Having been challenged by social phobia for over a decade, it was only through dance did she peel back the layers to discover her true self and tap into her potential as a human being to transcend the things that held her back from living with peace, clarity and understanding. She uses dance as an alaogy of our lives, where the thoughs and triggers on the dance floor reflect where we are in life and where we need to focus on changing, growing and developing.
Had a great time tonight, wonderful vibe and great hosting by Angela. My five year old, Sage, also loved it. She said to me, “I didn’t know the Raw Cacao Dance Party was going to be THIS wild!” Having done lots of Nia dance over the last six years, I really loved being able to bring Sage along to a conscious dance session. And although we’ve danced at home together, I think it was an eye opening experience for her to see lots of people dancing uninhibited with such a lovely vibration happening.
