Kathy is the co founder of Open Floor International, an organization that promotes conscious dance as a form of well being, community building, peace making and creativity. She has danced her whole life but moving without choreography imposed from the outside is the skill she relies on most.
Kathy has taught dance to thousands of people on many continents for over 40 years. She sees that habits we resort to on the dance floor are similar to what we do off the dance floor. Noticing and modifying our thoughts and beliefs, finding authentic expression for our needs and emotions and building tolerance for our differences with others are key elements to health and wellness. These are the tenets of her work. Kathy now trains others to teach embodied movement and moving meditation. Her work is open source, registered on the creative commons and governed by a process called Dynamic Governance. Equivalency, efficiency and transparency are its trademarks.
