Instructor Spotlight

Jane // Instructor

Meet Jane!

Jane came to Divine at the persistent urging of a trusted friend and repeated viewings of the “why I dance” video on YouTube. She could tell immediately that this was her sanctuary. She started spending as much time as possible at the studio for the therapeutic and cathartic magic that she felt, and discovered an extra bonus of increased physical strength and power. She feels truly fortunate and honored to be able to share her home with such beautiful and brave women.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
I love EVERYTHING about Divine Movement! I love the students who support each other and take what they need for themselves, I love the instructors who hold space for students, and I love having a space to be free in my movement.

What do you consider your teaching style?
I consider my teaching style to be nurturing and supportive, but also fun and sometimes pushing you beyond what you think you can do in your boudoir or technical journey. This is the safest place in my world, and I want my students to feel that same safety.
