Up until ten years ago, I taught contemporary dance to a wide range of community groups, through different educational and charitable organisations. I loved it, it kept me healthy and strong and a weakness in my back and legs stayed in check, but I knew I needed to get a grown up job so that I could buy a house and become a little bit more adult like. So I stopped dancing and began working as a Dramatherapist in the NHS.
Ten years on I am starting again, from a place of plus size clothes, tired legs, a grumpy back and a tiredness all public service workers know too well. This July I completed seven days intensive training in the Nia technique. I gained my white belt, a licence to teach it and a roaring determination to get my body back to health! I can't tell you how proud I was of myself!
Celebrating our achievement! (I am second row up on the right)
So now that I have learned the technique it is time to start moving! My first class is on Monday 3rd November 6.30 -7.30pm at the Beehive, Kingsthorpe, Northampton, UK. For the first month the classes are free whilst I find my feet. I am nervous excited and slightly worried but I know that it is a positive journey to be on. So if you are local come and join me on my journey, or start your own or just come for the fun. If your fancy joining or sharing my Facebook page, TitaNia Dancing I would be most grateful!
Kind wishes to you all
