essence Dance combines creative movement, rhythm and music with wellbeing tools. This unique dance allows you to work at your own pace, in your own space. No experience is necessary. The creative aspect allows for individuality and diversity, rather than sameness. Within a structure and pattern, you get to create and interpret movement that works for you and your body.
