Antoinette has always been fascinated by how the human body can move. She has enthusiastically studied balls sports, gymnastics, horseback riding, physical therapy, ballet, jazz dance, karate, the Feldenkrais Method®, and Latin American dance. These studies have helped her get a greater understanding of motor skills and human functioning. Watching a well-coordinated action makes her day, but teaching others how to move feeds her soul.
Antoinette started Latin American dance when she was in her thirties while simultaneously going through the Feldekrais®
professional training program. Becoming aware of how different parts of the body relate, helped her tremendously in learning Salsa, Merengue, Cha-Cha-Cha and many other styles of dance.
After an injury, Antoinette had to stop dancing for a few years. She continued her physical therapy exercises and Qi-Gong practice. Not being able to restrain herself, she would
occasionally dance with very small and gentle dance movements for her own enjoyment.
Antoinette hopes to integrate her passion for dance with the movement teachings of the Feldenkrais Method. She knows
dancing freely is great for our body, mind, and soul. She aims to give you the tools to dance freely, without inhibitions, and is excited to share what she has learned with you while reducing inhibitions about dance.
