susanne

Susanne is a native Torontonian, born and raised downtown. hip hopAs such, she is very fortunate to have been exposed to Toronto’s singular culture and nightlife, which was extremely fertile and vibrant in the 1990s and 2000′s. She had ready access to nightclubs, raves and warehouse parties where she fell in love with street dance and culture.
Then she attended her first hip-hop dance class in 1999, and has never looked back!.. She has since branched out to House, breakdance, and other forms of street dance.

Susanne started practicing yoga around 2009; like many souls she had reached a
crossroads in life, and yoga offered a unique respite – an irresistible combination
of breathing, meditation, flexibility and focus, which she finds naturally
complements her dancing

shiva dance

And then…it is the Age of Awakening

On the Night of Shiva, as creation awaited, 
the drum sounded and music awoke the vast silence with the vibration of om 
and brought the universe into existence

And the dance begins…
The primal energy infuses everything and nature awakens
flowers bloom, waterfalls tumble into immense canyons, 
and the animals evolve as consciousness races back to its source

The dance begins
Dance continues
Dance never ends

(Excerpt from The Dance of Shiva by Paresh)

“The source of all movement,
Shiva’s dance,
Gives rhythm to the universe.
He dances in evil places,
In sacred,
He creates and preserves,
Destroys and releases.

We are part of this dance
This eternal rhythm,
And woe to us if, blinded
By illusions,
We detach ourselves
From the dancing cosmos,
This universal harmony…”

Ruth Peel

Do you dance for freedom, dance for love, 

Dance for the earth and the skies above?
Do you Dance for sunshine, dance for rain?
Dance for healing from all the pain?Then come back to your tribe, and dance again.
Dance with your tribe my love
