Dance was Chrissy’s first love.
Mindful partner dance is Chrissy’s most recent love.
Chrissy will give you access to the fundamentals of creating harmony in a shared partner dance – no matter the music, no matter the partner.
Chrissy can hardly remember when it began, but dance came as naturally as breathing to her body and she never questioned how to do it. She just danced. For twenty years she studied dance professionally, in the form of solo movement for performance and competition. As she matured, she began to awaken to all the ways that her training was limiting in its lack of embrace of the uniqueness of all body types. This awakening led her to the yoga studio. After several years on a "time-off" from dance, with nearly all of her time spent in the yoga studio, Chrissy re-emerged in the dance scene with a fresh outlook. At the first night of Foothills Fusion Dance, in 2015, Chrissy committed to a new dance form. Partner dance intimidated, allured and in time deeply transformed Chrissy’s being. No other practice has contributed so much to her unfolding as mindful partner dance. Chrissy's teaching of fusion dance is rooted in mindfulness, and as such is a practice of conscious relating, using our experiences on the dance floor to transform the ways we are in relationship with ourselves and each other, day in and day out.
