Nia Dance with Susan Tate – June 26th

June 26, 2021 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm EDT

Dancing Woman

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Nia is so easy to follow that anyone can participate and enjoy this invigorating and fun experience. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music for an hour of gentle movement that inspires and uplifts every aspect of our being.


Your Teacher:

Susan Tate, a licensed black belt Nia teacher, discovered Nia in 1997 while she was the Director of Health Promotion and assistant professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia. She is the author of four health-related books, including Wellness Wisdom: 31 Ways to Nourish Your Mind, Body, & Spirit. Susan teaches internationally and has taught thousands of classes since she began teaching Nia in 1999. As a health educator for many decades, she often describes Nia as “health education and mindfulness poured into movement.” She teaches weekly Nia Moving to Heal classes for the University of Virginia Cancer Center, offers holistic coaching sessions, and is also a wedding officiant.
