Ahead of International Women’s Day, Roxy shares with us how dancing shaped her as a woman.

 

“On this International Women’s Day I wanted to reflect on my love of dance. Dance helps women embrace their femininity and love their body for what it can do, NOT what it looks like.

Dance feels like flying and becoming one with the music. Dance has given me the opportunity to live and travel around the world.

But the main thing I’ve gained in my 20 or so years as a dancer is incredible friendships. I’ve been so lucky to work with and teach amazing women who have become life-long friends. In dance classes I’ve cried with laughter over a shared joke, I’ve held space for friends as they’ve vented their daily frustrations or shared their heart aches.

I’ve seen women grow from shy and nervous to confident queens, and I’ve never felt so supported and uplifted than I do in a dance class with my girls!”
