My name is Chandra and for most of my life, I have been using dance as a tool for my life. I trained as a dancer at The Arts Educational Schools, London and completed the five-year dance and academic training there. The professional dance and theatre skills training, equipped me with a wonderful understanding of the nature of physical expression, discipline and presentation. With these skills I went on to the Dance Diploma Course at Lewisham College, which furthered my understanding of dance and my skills as a dancer and choreographer. There I also learnt, under the guidance of Scott Clark, more deeply expressive forms of dance such as Release Technique and more in depth physical awareness techniques such as Feldenkrais technique. I have spent a great deal of my life traveling and have a deep love and respect of humanity and all its colours. I decided to intensify my understanding of my self through therapy and meditation groups at various centers in Europe and Asia. I went on to receive a Dance, Drama and Voice therapist Diploma with the Artemis Foundation U.K. This course included Self Mastery 1 and 2 which qualified me as Breath therapist. After this I began to develop the work I am presenting to you now, it has been a very interesting 6 years in which I have learnt how best to accomplish my goal of re-integrating dance into society as a tool toward deeper self discovery and transformation, and serving to develop the higher consciousness inherent in us all.
