Biography

Anne is based in Melbourne and has been dancing Nia since 2011.  She has completed the Nia White Belt.

Her first experience of Nia was one of pure joy!  It was as if she was a little girl again, instantly transported back to her favourite school teacher’s classroom.  In an era where school was rather beige and earnest, this teacher  opened up endless possibilities for creativity. With her mini skirt swishing, her platform shoes clicking and her pony tails flying (there were five!), she brought trailing in her wake enormous amounts of fun, adventure, liberation and possibility, as well as open hearted nurture and care.  To Anne, this is Nia!

Nia also connects to a quieter, deeper level of experience and participants are often flowing with feeling and imagery during and after the sessions.  Nia draws upon the healing arts which, along with certain music, stirs up energy that needs to shift and transform. 

Anne has an abiding interest in the emotional and relational aspects of experience, and works professionally as a psychotherapist. She has a particular interest in how emotional experience and memory is stored in the body, and how it can be shifted to make it available for elaboration, transformation and healing. Dancing and now teaching Nia is a deeply expressive and creative adjunct to her psychotherapy work. And it’s fun!

Anne aims to provide a safe, contained and playful Nia experience.  She would love to have you join her!
