I offer you experiences that spark connections.

From meditative soundscapes to bass-bumping dance parties, or one-on-one sessions — I’ve got something to support you in unlocking your creative expression and finding your tribe. It’s a process that’s rooted in the fibers of your body and you’ve already got everything you need. You simply need the training grounds to discover it. And the tribe to cheer you on..

Ecstatic Dance

In 2016, I founded Ecstatic Dance D.C. and have worked since then to provide a playful, transformative and creative community space. Ecstatic Dance is a global movement that is revolutionizing the social scene and party spaces through dynamic DJ sets that don't linger in one genre for long. The music widely varies in tempo and style, allowing for incredibly creativity in your movement and expression. Our dance floor is barefoot, non-verbal and all about the movement - we show up to let everything out and dance ourselves clean. We create space to celebrate and express with an awesome community of movement rebels!

Check out my Soundcloud and Mixcloud pages for example Ecstatic Dance sets, which feature a broad range of genres.

DJ

When I’m not on the dance floor, I’m in the booth mixing the tracks for others. I’m a dancer first and always, so my DJ style reflects my desire to inspire creative movement. I craft electronic music journeys that feature global rhythms, dance-able beats, folkloric instruments and melodic grooves.

Yoga

I have more than 6 years experience facilitating yoga and meditation and hold over 800 hours in teacher certification trainings. I’ve also facilitated in three 200-hour yoga teacher trainings to develop new teachers.

While in Washington, D.C. I facilitate classes for Daybreaker, The Kennedy Center, The Hirshhorn Museum of Modern Art, many government and corporate offices, as well as at studios in public classes or with private clients. My dedication to somatic exploration will elevate your yoga practice to one of profound awakening through meditative movement.
