Hannah began dancing at Divine Movement in February 2016. She has a close friend just beginning as an instructor and she needed students for her class. Hannah thought she was the one helping out her friend that needed to fill a room, but didn’t realize how meaningful the experience would be and fully fell in love with the dance, the community, and the Divine life. Each new class has provided a unique way to connect with herself and others and she hopes to spread that joy to others.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
Divine has created an environment full of acceptance and exploration. I have cried, literally rolled on the floor laughing, made incredible connections to others and myself, and been consistently challenged during my journey at Divine. I am so thankful for all of these experiences.
What do you consider your teaching style?
I am always striving for balance. I want my students to feel safe, but also challenged. Grounded in themselves and their movement, but also feel the joy of floating and the excitement of trying something new. I hope to remind my students that they are brave for stepping into a new world of dance, but also feel the comforts of having a second home at Divine.
