Nia White Belt Teacher

about Amy

Amy Schaich has been dancing Nia® since 2009 and the natural time to teach ripened in 2018. Her dance vocabulary includes modern, social (polka, waltz, swing, two-step, blues, salsa), folk (country-western and pop line dances), and American belly dance. She finds that the structure of Nia, rooted in freedance, is continuously evolving like all of us. Just add yourself and experience the alchemy in motion, which can be there even when times are tough. Amy embraces the truth that through movement we find health, which empowers and supports living and aging well.

Series Focus: The interplay between stability and flexibility
Intent: To activate your inner personal trainer and move your body's way from the ground up

You are invited for an evening opportunity to loosen up, move lymph, break a sweat, and reintegrate your body. We will be moving to music on a wooden floor with no mirrors which supports our purpose of an authentic, playful, discovery of our human embodied experience. Shoes and a yoga mat are optional as needed for your body. Chairs are also available in the space to assist with balance and support as needed. Amy's goal is to create a container of calm energy leaving you revitalized and peaceful.

Nested inside the series focus, each date also has a focus and intent:

  • April 2: three levels of movement, with intention to move congruently with your body's needs in the moment

  • April 9: toe directions, traveling in directions, with intention to be fully conscious of movement choices

  • April 16: head and eye movements, with intention to expand awareness of moving in space

  • [No Class April 23]

  • April 30: shifting weight, with intention to be fully present in the body, inviting healing and gratitude
