Who We Are
Words of Inspiration
We are a collective of dedicated movers who share a love of music, dance, and soulful inquiry.
We are inspired and sourced by The 5 Rhythms, Moving Soul Dance, Soul Motion, Open Floor, Contact Improvisation, Journey Dance, Continuum, World Dance and many other forms of embodied movement.
We use movement as a vehicle for creative self-expression, exploration, meditation, play and healing.
We gather weekly with a rotating list of four consistent DJ/ facilitators from within our dance family.
We strive to create musical soundscapes with a high level of integrity, heart, and passion.
We share the role of DJ/Facilitator to broaden the base of creative viewpoints, and to encourage a variety of experiences
We offer a space where both new and experienced dancers have the opportunity to explore and express physically, emotionally and relationally.
We believe that each dancer is responsible for their own safety while also being aware of the safety of others
What We Do
Every DJ-facilitator brings their particular strengths and character to the dance experience. The tone of the dance is orchestrated through the chosen musical palette and theme of the day.
Occasionally the facilitator may augment with gentle movement cues.
We encourage expressive and subtle movement as well as, ahh…stillness.
We offer a safe place to explore emotions, playfulness, and sacred inquiry.
Dancing alone or with others is encouraged, mindful of each other’s boundaries.
Meet Our Facilitators
Danielle Jenna was raised in Connecticut, and has been living in Los Angeles for 3 years after stints in Massachusetts, Italy, New York, and Arizona. While she now can’t imagine a life in which she doesn’t dance, it has been just the past few years that dance has become a practice that has, and continues to, transform her relationship to her inner world, her outer world, her body, and her life. She is fascinated by and in love with the way dance enables us to feel and process the depth of emotion that cannot be put into words and discover a new form of self expression with every beat. It is one of her greatest joys to be able to facilitate this experience for others. Danielle's DJ style incorporates global music from different cultures, tribal, funk, jazz, folk, disco, and anything else that she discovers moves her, physically or/and emotionally. She appreciates beautiful melodies and angelic voices as well as deep heart-thumping beats. Danielle also has a lifelong love of singing and currently loves participating in improvisational song circles, finding different modes of vocal expression. Danielle has recently been working in the fields of mental health and youth development through community programming. She is passionate about the practices of emotional and somatic awareness, self-compassion, creative expression and movement to improve mental health and particularly to help those recovering from addiction. She is devoted to exploring these connections to promote both personal and community peace and wellbeing.
