DANCE

Welcome to my site. Aurora Dances offers performances, workshops, classes, and private sessions that provide embodied pathways to connect you with your body's innate wisdom and creative power. 

The body is the primary teacher and starting point for this work. The body, like nature, is inherently creative. When we can tap into our body's creative imagination we can create inspired change in our bodies, relationships and communities.

Your dance is needed, is significant and matters.
Your Dance Can...

provide
a felt sense of belonging

Our body's feelings are an innate emotional INTELLIGENCE that can provide wisdom, insight & an embodied knowing of interconnection. 

create 
rituals for meaningful change

 A power within all beings, regardless if you call yourself an artist or not, is our CREATIVITY. It can catalyze personal, communal & environmental change. 

be an act of 
embodied activism

in a society that encourages us to be literally & physically smaller, tending to the body, moving the body, & giving it space to EXPRESS is a form of system disruption.

Aurora is not only a warm and engaging person to do vulnerable work with, she is also deeply knowledgeable in her areas of expertise, and keeps the mood interesting and playful.

PHILOSOPHY

The mistreatment of our planet is directly connected to the mistreatment & objectification of our bodies.

All bodies, regardless of age, shape, and abilities, have their own unique set of sensations or voices that desire to be heard. Learning to listen to our body's voice re-connects us to the power that we each hold. Learning to listen to our body is a courageous act of love for our bodies, relationships, and our earth. As we transform our relationship to our bodies, we naturally transform our relationships with our communities and environment.
