“I am a professional dance artist, dance teacher, Pilates instructor, choreographer, and an advocate for dance and movement in the education system and daily life. More so than all of these things, I am first, a mover. Movement is what I’m most interested in: instilling passion, desire, and necessity for movement in everyone’s life no matter how young or old. I thrive on helping others discover the fullness of their movement potential, because I believe that movement has the capacity to create change from the inside-out. Our bodies can express emotion and creativity in a way that nothing else can. Through my choreography, technique training, conditioning, and dance instruction, I aim to instill this same passion, and evoke genuine emotional expression through movement. “-Courtney Anne Holcomb
