Oh, hi! I’m Jess. Almost forgot to introduce myself. Though I was once a shy, obedient ballerina who followed dance steps like a technical machine, I now dance freely in public and performative contexts - everywhere from the TEDx stage to New York's Got Talent. From holding up a “DANCE WITH ME” sign in a busy airport lobby, to being stuck on stage with no music in front of an audience of 200 people, I’ve learned a thing or two about what it means to channel your inner goddess through dance.
As much as I’ve been obsessed with certain pop-stars and their dance videos for years, I’ve also been obsessed with seeking out a female-friendly version of spirituality, the moon cycles and seasons of life, goddess archetypes, etc.
I came across a video on YouTube a couple of months ago as I was searching to learn more about the Indian goddess Kali, which pointed out how Beyonce’s 7/11 video was actually echoing this goddess. I did more digging and searching and found that different goddess archetypes are present in many other pop-stars’ work, too, which is how the seeds of this dance style were planted.
What I've learned is that this goddess energy is powerful stuff, and it isn’t just reserved for ancient deities or multi-platinum pop stars -
It’s for you, too.
