We would LOVE to introduce you to one of our facilitators, Sophie Bolton from SW England. Sophie has had a lifelong passion to dance; she found gold on the psychedelic floors of the UK trance scene in the late nineties- seeing the light beyond her patterns of behaving and relating in order to survive. We are proud to have her in our Dancing Freedom family and are happy to share some of her embodied wisdom with you. Injoy <3
“What is it that you really love to do? And I mean for ‘a living’, what makes you feel like you are ‘living’ your life? I’m hoping that you’ll receive this at a time when you’re thinking of starting something new and here’s the sign to take that leap!
I have chosen to follow my heart of late. I am choosing to align with the smallest, humblest and largest stirring inside- to DANCE and facilitate free form dance, to cultivate more connection between others at a time where feelings of separation and loneliness are growing!
I’ve discovered that holding Dancing freedom sessions means I get to share my passion for music and dance as a, ah-hem….DJ lady! From the new experience I have of mixing tunes I’m more bothered about being available to the people than I am with the next great mix – as long as I can share a journey with good music that I love with those that are there, then I’m winning!! So with my New Year’s intention of ‘do what you love to do’, I got to purchasing a sound system and DJ equipment. And I’m taking small steps to get to know my new toys.
A question I have is, what are you good at naturally? For me it’s shining my light, being open to talking to strangers in queues, being wild, breaking self conscious norms and dancing freely.
Hopefully your job is what you love to do and if it’s not, then your gut knows that you’re building up to leaving and doing something you do love to do, right?
So, I dedicate this post to those with an inclination to no longer play it small, to those ready to open their sails to new adventures where they can shine. We are amazing and life is short. Be it and Do it.”

And, we’ve got one more month until Early Bird ends for our upcoming Dancing Freedom Training in August. Maybe this did find you at the perfect moment and you’re finding that you’re ready to take the leap and share your passion for dance medicine. Or, maybe you believe in the same things we do, help us spread the word about this Medicine, share this with your friends! After all- we are all in this together <3
