Meet the Dance Students:
Hannah and Connor are ambitious, independently and in partnership. Hannah is a marriage counselor at Sequoia Immersions, always looking for new ways to help couples connect through healthy experiences. Connor is going to school for coding with intentions on making a meaningful impact via the world of technology. Together they love exploring nature and are always looking for opportunities to grow and develop their meaning of life.
Connor and Hannah’s Goal:
Connor and Hannah’s goal were to be able to dance together and feel good about. They loved the idea of building experiences and connecting through dance, but they were not feeling this through past dance classes. They hoped learning Flow would change that.
“We are learning how to express who we are individually and as a couple through our bodies, through whatever music we hear, in any place, at any time.”
“It is so fun and so liberating just to not worry what other folks think and just to allow yourself to be creative in your movement”
Notes about their journey:
Hannah and Michael met at a workshop focused on strengthening relationships. They discussed the parallels of strengthening relationships on and off the dance floor. Hannah decided she needed to bring her husband to Flow and give this dancing thing a shot. During the first few lessons, they found themselves stepping on each other and getting frustrated because weren’t “doing it right”. They quickly moved passed this discomfort of being imperfect and found that their imperfect dancing is what made it so much fun. Each lesson they found they were better than the last and could create and incorporate new moves into their repertoire. Sometimes they switch roles. Connor likes learning through the follow’s role and Hannah likes all the possibilities as a lead. These two are at a point in their journey where dancing always feels good and it is now a skill they use whenever the moment presents itself.
Born in Seattle, raised in Granite Falls, and graduated with an Economics degree from the UW. Local boy!
I have a fondness for countless activities, but my two favorite are kiteboarding and dancing. I’ve experienced feelings through these that I haven’t found elsewhere. A goal of mine is to travel the entire world kitesurf/snowkite/landkite by day and dance and mingle with the crazy locals by night. That would be a trip.
My favorite TV shows are “Naked and Afraid” and “Shark Tank”. I hope to be on both!
I have a dream of building a community with extraordinary people that foster’s everyone’s dreams and we work together to realize these dreams and evolve into our best selves. I’m thinking this community will take place on a tropical island with loads of fruit trees and cool animals, like pandas and monkeys, etc.
All of this is on hold until I can complete Flow’s platform and develop the awareness of this physical language and how incredibly life-enhancing it is.
