I am a dancer, a lover of creative and expressive arts, and a tree hugger from way back. My yoga practice led me to JourneyDance™ where things started to make sense. As I floated through the room during my first dance led by Toni Bergins, JourneyDance™ creator, my body remembered, “I’m a dancer! I love to dance!” And so, at the age of forty-four with a husband and three children, my journey began.
For me, JourneyDance™ has been a spark to re-ignite my inner flame that, over the years, had dimmed. My JourneyDance™ practice has enhanced my creativity, it has revitalized my body, and it has given me an avenue to dance through my emotions and really connect with myself, with the people around me, and with our magnificent Earth.
I love how we can lose ourselves in the music, completely surrendering to its rhythms. To move and be moved, without fear and with whatever uneasiness lives within, being held and seen, this is the dance. And when the music stops, we want more. Yeah, it’s that delicious.
My passion is to hold safe and supportive spaces where people of all ages come together to dance and realize their own inner spark and cultivate it so that it grows to a fierce fire of love and compassion to be shared with the world.
So what is JourneyDance?
It’s often hard to describe what JourneyDance™ is because it encompasses so much. Essentially JourneyDance™ is loosely guided, freestyle, conscious dance. But what it really is, what you discover when you’re in the dance, is freedom. It’s freedom from judgement, from yourself or others, freedom from your monkey brain because when your body starts moving your brain quiets. It’s freedom of expression, freedom to connect with your inner-child and with others. It’s freedom to move in any way you feel. In fact, it’s freedom to feel all of your emotions and all of your body movements. Yes, JourneyDance™ is freedom…wild, delicious, infinite freedom.

Here is the fabulous Toni Bergins talking about "How to dance like no one is watching".
"I have been dancing with Kelly for over a year and I am still amazed every single time at how my body responds to her dance. I had no idea what to expect when I went for the first time, but I soon realized that the only thing I had to do was to step out of my mind and let myself be guided by my body. Kelly's beautiful flowing dance and her ability to create a safe and inviting space for your body to surrender to the music make her JourneyDance session a healing experience for body and soul. More than once I came to the dance with a sore back or legs, only to leave with a body that felt balanced and complete again. Kelly's JourneyDance is a beautiful and fun way to let go of what no longer serves you and to give yourself the love you so much deserve." -MB
