I am Rosaria M. Gracia, dance artist, choreographer, movement director and university lecturer. I am also a keen researcher. My current areas of interest and expertise are the application of dance and movement in health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s, mild to moderate mental health conditions, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and ME. I am very interested in exploring how movement can support our bodies and minds to feel, nurture, rejuvenate and perform well, independently of our age, condition or ability, working with what we have and blossoming with it.
On that note, I would like to invite you to some very special events (in addition to my regular classes)
