The 12 tenets of my teaching practice

Before anything else, try.

Practice is participatory. You can always opt out, always in choice. Your practice is Yours.

Turn comparison into motivation and inspiration.

There’s no need to always operate at 100%. Play with your levels of effort and scales of expression.

If you look too graceful in class, try something you haven’t found grace in…yet.

Stay interested. Don’t try to be interesting. 

Shift the ‘what if’ to ‘why not’?

Come open with questions. Leave charged with more questions. 

All I share is contextual. You are to discern how they apply to you. 

Show up consistently and put in the work. Progress is non-linear. 

Make sure I am only one of and not your only teacher. 

Express gratitude towards  who you’re practising with. Where you’re practising in. 

I study what moves us.

Movement is the practice, the purpose and the perspective

I explore the experience of movement, of being moved into action, from the lens of joy, wonder and liberation.

Work with me

Find out how we can work together.

My curiosity lies in how movement is the very expression of party and protest. How we can understand ourselves through movement so we understand what it means to move together…towards collective action, meaningful exchange and transgenerational healing.
