Dance With Confidence

With Term 4 fast approaching I have my mind turned towards all our new members who we hope to meet soon. And I got to thinking that I am very lucky to take my confidence in dance for granted.

Happy international women’s day - now let's chat cervix!

Happy International Women’s Day to all our wonderful members! This empowering day has me thinking about our female bodies and the unrealistic expectations we are often pressured to take on. It seems my culture and society would have me convinced that, to be at your best, one should always continue to mirror the body of a perfect 20 year old - well I don’t buy it.
