Can I give a huge shout out to my friend Kirsty for following her heart and establishing Heartspace dance Studio and giving us adults a space to express ourselves. The last few years I’ve pulled myself out of an anxious and overwhelmed person to an empowered woman. There’s been so many things that have helped me but a huuuge part of that empowerment was going to the Mama’s dance class on Wednesday nights taught by the gorgeous Evie. I can’t wait even describe what this has done for my confidence and how I present myself to the world. I’ve found the part of me from my 20s that I lost, but now I’m wiser and stronger. Women who want to get embodied, come dancing with us on Wednedays (there’s classes on Tuesdays too taught by Kirsty!). It’s so much fun!

I started dance at the age of 4, it was all i ever knew I wanted to be. Could cry talking about my love and passion for dance! I studied dance, at dance world studios in Melbourne at the age of 17 my dream was to travel and dance around the world with other great dancers. When I decided to give it up it was like a walked away from a big chunk on my life and now I'm back at it thanks to Kirsty Sziron-Chalkley, Kester Chalkley and Evie Barnes, the beautiful teachers at Heartspace. Thank you guys for inspiring me all over again to do the one thing that I love so much the one thing that makes everything else melt away. I love that I can just have fun now no pressure of trying to be the best although inspired to do my best with no judgment just loads of love passion and inspiration. Feeling like a dancer again more and more each week, even though I’m a Mum of three now (who also dance At this beautiful space).
