Vanessa’s teaching style makes people feel welcome, included, respected and safe. Her movement- based approach inspires her students by empowering them to notice how their energy levels, breath quality and emotions can flow when they use their bodies in specific ways.
She started studying Ballet when she was 4 years old and went on to become a freelance professional in Contemporary Dance. She achieved an MA in Dance Performance at
Trinity Laban Conservatoire and a doctorate in Cultural Heritage, and trained in Community Dance, which has been a significant influence on how she has developed her
teaching around inclusivity.
Her 30 year journey through movement has enabled her to develop a practice, which also draws on wisdom from Yin Yoga, Yoga Psychology, Pilates, Barre and Somatics, to alleviate stress and allow our bodies to be more available, joyous and free of tension.
