My Why

I am a human and I am an artist. I use the ritual of dance to confront and eventually kill the illusion of ego. The desire to release this ego and live a life not crippled by insecurity and fear fuel my why. I use the magic of movement, rhythm, and joy to go on journeys to gain more clarity about my why and to hopefully make honest connections with others also searching along the way.

Bio

Constance is a Denver-based, New Jersey native and graduate of the Masters in Fine Arts Dance program at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her fusion dance style is the result of over 20 years of combined experience in a variety of dance experiences ranging from Modern, Middle Eastern forms, nightlife entertainment and styles based in Africanist aesthetics. Her professional career began as a chorus dancer for Jillina Carlano's Belly Dance Evolution. She would later go on to co-found the New Jersey based fusion dance company, Be. Coming Movement in 2016. One of Constance's biggest passions is freestyle/Go-go dancing and she has been honored to dance at some of the country's liveliest nightclubs and festivals, including The Trestle Inn (Philadelphia), Mile High Soul Club (Denver), and Global Dance Festival (Denver). She is currently an instructor of Afrofusion dance at the street dance and breaking studio, Block 1750, in Boulder, CO and an online contributor to the world dance and fitness online dance studio, Raqs Online!

Teaching

Constance currently teaches her personal style of Afrofusion dance for Block 1750 (Boulder, CO) and Raqs Online!

This class focuses on teaching technique and choreography that borrows from Pan-African vernacular and street dances found throughout the continent and the diaspora, as well as Hip-Hop, House, and Jazz Funk. We will focus on polycentric dance techniques that will blend upper and lower body isolations with rhythmical footwork that complements the polyrhythms of Afrobeat, Afrobeats, Afrohouse and more! Be ready to get intricate, grounded, and groovy!
