“I followed the Chair Dance Express classes with Kate when I was studying in Leuven, and later I completed the Chair Dance Express Instructor Training. After my studies, I started my own Chair Dance Express class, which is a nice complement to Partyrobics. I take the time to learn choreography to my students, we usually work on the same choreo for about one month to really feel every step and to be connected with the music. My choreographies are very lyrical. I also love to dance with a “dress code”. At the end of a class, we record the choreo so we have very nice, sometimes sexy, sometimes hilarious, memories to cherish ”
“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been obsessed with dance. I recall videotaping music videos on MTV, which my mum forbid me to watch, and practising the routines in secret. Hearing these songs I used to dance to, my body still remembers most of the steps, while my mind doesn’t. That’s such a magical thing. But it’s only by getting older, I became aware of the deeper meaning of the dance. Something intangible, healing and powerful, like a religion.
Knowing how to dance and knowing how to teach are to very different things. I tend to tell stories quite incoherently. So what about this passion? How can I convey these choreographies that I created so proudly in a clear way?
I was very fortunate to meet Kate, who is an amazing role model as a teacher, both in dance and in life. She taught me about self-worth and about understanding but also controlling these emotions for others to grasp. It’s not only about the steps. Making others feel what you feel throughout the entire class: liberated, empowered and leaving room for flaws. That’s what makes her teaching unique.”
I am so happy I finally found the time to follow the Chair Dance Express instructor training. Kate is a warm and enthusiastic person with a unique style. Her classes are joyful for body and mind with choreographies rich in stories, emotions, and self-love.
The instructor training consists of the theoretical part with a well-written handbook (teaching methods, the flows & energies, chair moves…), homework to get to know the style and really valuable feedback on your own chair choreographies & ideas. I loved every second of the training!
Express yourself, a story, and emotions while dancing with and around a chair. Enjoy a fun workout with different accessible choreographies and room for your own interpretation.
I love the Chair Dance Express concept because it’s not only about dancing a choreography but so much about a feeling of the music and expressing yourself. I will give the women the positive energy, that will allow them to feel and enjoy themselves while dancing.
This is my home.
Two years ago, I had my first dance class @chairDance. I don’t know how I got there and what to expect. Instantly I felt this warm, supportive vibe and it only got bigger. I got bigger. Not only as a dancer, but also as a person.
I realized I never really enjoyed dancing: the constant focus on the steps. Competition with other girls. It made me feel so small.
I don’t want to be the best dancer. I don’t want to feel any competitive vibe with the girls around me. I want to feel the music. I can get so lost when I dance. It’s heaven.
My goal with teaching is not to strive for the perfect stretch leg. I don’t care about that. I don’t mind if you miss a step. I want to support those stunning girls (they all are!). That everyone feels bigger. Dance is emotion, expression. That’s what I care about.
Let’s dance freely, let’s feel good about ourselves.
This is my life.
