Journey through Dance is a conscious movement modality inspired and created by Leigh-Rose Goodman. It is a guided transformational journey through a storyline or theme created to facilitate a deep exploration into Self through dance and movement.

It is a practice to facilitate deep embodiment and reconnection to one’s entire self – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

You do not need to know how to dance. The journey invites your body to move and respond intuitively; allowing you to access honest, authentic and unique expression. When we begin to move our bodies in this way, we build a strong connection to ourselves and we can finally relax into our Being-ness.

How we dance reflects the way we live and how we engage with others and life.
How we live and how we engage with others and life reflects our dance.

So, how is your dance? How are you moving in life? Do you feel stuck or trapped? Are you wanting to change certain aspects of your life? Are you sitting with deep emotions that no longer serve you? Perhaps it’s time to move them and ultimately let them go and transform them.

Dancing is about connection. In a time when there is so much disconnection, dance is a wonderful universal tool to help us to connect more deeply.

A Journey through Dance class is a space for deep healing, release, inspiration, expansion and transformation. Classes may assist in letting go of negative emotions, stagnant energy, pain, anger, stress and trauma.

Over the years, I have attended a number of Journey Through Dance classes offered by Leigh. Leigh continues to hold a gentle – yet powerful supportive space for her clients and students – no matter where you find yourself at the time. I love the balance of personal reflection and movement that she offers through her workshops and classes. I sincerely hope you get to experience it for yourself. Thank you Leigh!

I have attended many of Leigh’s sessions and have benefited greatly from them. Her passion for what she is doing and her attitude of openness puts me at ease and in the safe environment she creates, I feel able to participate freely without pressure or judgement. After each session, I have felt that something important for me has been uncovered. I am in awe of their transformative power and intend to continue with them.

It was really amazing. I totally forgot how much I love dancing. It was so amazing to just be me and let my hair down. Cant wait for the next one.

I have felt more connected to my authentic self this week. Having had so much quality time dancing in my true essence, I had the chance to embody that feeling and keep it with me. The more I master this practice, the more I can help others do the same, and. Can see it happening around me this week. I can also feel that when I’m like this, all judgements, towards myself and others, fall away, and love flows so much more abundantly through and towards me.
