Nia FreeDance - Your Body Wants to Express Itself

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 8:48am -- Karen Firebaugh

When I first discovered Nia back in 2012, freedance was my least favorite part. I thought I didn't know how to do it right! I felt self-conscious and awkwardly shy. I'd often skip over the freedance songs when learning routines and never practiced the 8 stages of freedance; it seemed a waste of my "limited" time. Then one of my favorite Nia choreographers, Adelle Brownlee Brewer, was to lead a Nia FreeDance training at the Joy of Movement in Pittsboro NC (where I now teach) and I'd have done anything to spend a weekend dancing with her. And I told myself, maybe it would help me feel more comfortable teaching freedance and I'd learn some tips. I found so much more...

Have You Danced Today?

Wed, 04/25/2018 - 9:59am -- Karen Firebaugh

Even though I'm passionate about Nia, there are days that I think I don't have time. So I let it slide. And sometimes, one day turns into too many to admit here in public... I am a Nia teacher after all! And then I feel the aches and pains returning and find that my life doesn't seem as bright as it did. Sometimes it takes me a while to realize what's missing. And then I get a gentle nudge from the universe (thanks, Nia HQ!) and I dance! and the Joy comes flooding back and #Ilovemylife again!
