Kaluwa (Movement for the Actor) began dancing shortly after learning to walk, and hasn’t stopped since. Her love of performing with dance companies and teams was topped only when she discovered her love of teaching dance. This passion for dance led her to train in using movement for expression and healing, and even develop a therapeutic movement program. Her blend of technique with expression provides a unique learning experience for performers of all abilities motivated to find their authentic performance.
