Why I dance?
Movement has reconnected me to the myriad of daily emotions; grief, rage, joy, love, compassion, humility, shyness, courage, and vitality.
In a world where the patriarchal culture has defined the glorious magnificent range of the feminine to a narrowly defined concept of a perceived 'acceptable' body shape, size, voice, and emotion;
In a world where the sisterhood has been broken, where we have become catty & malicious to one another
Movement, has brought me back ‘home’ to the unapologetic expression of my emotions through a safe space. It has reconnected me to the curves and sensuality of my body and brought me back to the joy of sisterhood.
“When we restore dignity in our feminine, we can claim restoration of dignity amongst humanity and planet.” Jessica Bensley.
"Jessica is a beautiful soul. She has the gift of guiding women through healing, sensual, feminine movement. Through her approach - she is able to create authentic community and within it- grant each individual woman permission to move and shine. Her practices are powerful and cathartic."
"Jessica, you embody and exude the Goddess feminine. Thank you for teaching me that it is essential through movement to expression and heal. The movement is something that words alone can't produce. Thank you for teaching that we hold energy in different parts of our bodies and as the feminine we must explore and express it. Thank you for always creating and encouraging us, and creating that sacred container for us to fully feel safe to express our own divine goddess." Julie Folcik
