Free Dance Space
Location: N.W. Corner of beautiful KENWOOD PARK (see below for directions)
Dance your blues away in this open, healthy & non-judgmental environment.
The focus of FreeDance Space is to let you feel comortable to move in your own body. I will give a little taste of various styles to see what style moves you the most, then I will give you Space to explore this movement on your own.
Learn from a few beginning steps to help move your body to the music, & express yourself.

I have been dancing Every Day since I was in my mama’s womb! My formal experience & education include: House Dance in NYC, Flamenco with Kristina De Sacramento of Anda Flamenco, Minneapolis, and in Granada, Spain, and African dance with Fatawu and Patricia Brown, Modern-Dance Choreography at Macalester College. My experience with Dance has helped me to be able to express myself and has been a way for me to releave stress! I would love to share this with you! I love teaching and encourage anyone who is interested to dance with me in this FreeDance Space Class!
