Thais Sansom – Yoga and Creative Dance

Thais loves to dance! She has studied and performed in a range of physical modalities and draws upon these in her classes, including contemporary, classical, traditional West African, creative, contact improvisation, Indigenous Australian, physical theatre, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais and 5Rhythms.

Thais holds a Bachelor of Applied Science, a Diploma of Education (Dance), a Graduate Diploma in Environmental and Cultural Interpretation and a Diploma of Teaching Creative Dance.

She is inspired by students discovering the magic of dance in their own bodies, in the music, and with each other. It fascinates her how movement can awaken, affirm, transform, delight and nurture, and she follows these threads in her teaching. She encourages students to discover their own dance, witness each other, and collaborate to create performance work.
