What I love about Open Floor
For me personally, I love the fact that I can bring all of me into my class, that my creative, my love for phat beats, my edge, my raw, my compassionate and weave a class or a workshop in such a way that is totally 100% me, and 100% Open Floor. The container is malleable, and that works for me. These resources are essential to living your best life, and you get to try them on, dancing!!! to great music surrounded by fucken amazing humans!!! its the best.
I'm still working on this, but at the moment...I'm feeling into something around the lines of >>> Bringing resources to humans so they can live their best life, to create a safe and brave space to practice being messy, wild, tame and tender<<<
“I stumbled upon Kaia’s dance floor at a time my life was unraveling. I found a safe space where I could be at once alive and electrified as well as completely undone. Kaia has a rare ability to hold a dance community with great strength without being at all imposing, a deft touch that is both masterful and compelling. She weaves the deep resources of Open Floor dance with the skills of an experienced DJ; lighting up what’s alive and needs to move with killer sound scapes. Kaia’s dance floor is much more than a movement space, it’s a sublimely curated score to go out and live your best damn life to!”

It you want to be more intune with all aspects of yourself you should dance with Kaia.
