Meet Molly!

Molly started dancing at Divine at the beginning of 2016, when a dear friend convinced her to try pole, and she fell in love right away. With a movement background in contra and blues dancing, rock climbing, and theater, she loves combining physical challenges with creative expression. She is incredibly excited to share the love of dance with more women, and she can be found alternately upside down or rolling around on the floor.

Why do you love Divine Movement?
Divine challenges my body and feeds my soul. I discovered aerial silks in college, and I loved it, but I didn’t really understand freestyle dance until I came to Divine. On top of that, this is one of the most loving, supportive communities I’ve ever had the privilege to be a part of. Divine has helped me learn that there is a time and place for being precise and technical, but there’s also a time for just letting go. Every time I get to dance at Divine, I feel amazing!
