Event description

Description

When: Saturday, February 10th and March 10th from 1:00-2:00pm.

Dancing is a fun and gentle exercise that everyone can enjoy, even if you’ve been told you have two left feet! This is the perfect time to connect with your body and your baby through movement and awareness. You have primal and powerful birth instincts within you, awaiting activation. You’ll be surprised at the numerous benefits for your pregnancy, your birth, your baby and your postpartum recovery. Babies in arms are always welcome to class.

Where: JUMP Move Studio on the fifth floor, take a right out of the elevators.

Cost: $13 per workshop. Tickets available online or at the door.

What to Expect: Wear clothes you can move in and bring a water bottle. We have limited changing room space and do not have lockers for personal items at the moment so please plan accordingly. Check our FAQs below for any further questions.


There have been two threads that have captured my heart: birth and dance. The two always charted their own separate courses. Never did I imagine a way to incorporate my two loves into one incredible gift, both to my community and myself.

I’ve studied all traditional forms of dance. Dance helped me maintain health, relieve stress, and celebrate life. Birth support and education are my lifetime calling.

Experience as a Birth Doula and mother led me to become a Birthing From Within Mentor. My goal as a childbirth educator is to reach families and help them find their innate birthing wisdom. Pregnancy is a sacred time. Women are open to new ideas and are deeply invested in finding the healthiest way to birth their children, and themselves as mothers. I have found it difficult for women to delve intensely into these subjects during traditional childbirth classes with only a few precious weeks at the end of pregnancy. Lacking, too, is a way to support new mothers after baby is born. Dancing for Birth offers women ongoing opportunities to dance and learn throughout pregnancy and right into the postpartum period, with their new babies.

Less than two years ago, Idaho didn't have any Dancing For Birth instructors. Upon learning that there would be a training in Boise I signed up immediately. It was a total leap of faith, never having seen or experienced an actual class. I wrapped my own new baby in a Moby and we took the training and taught our first classes together. There has never been anything that felt so right to me as dancing with and educating pregnant women and new moms. Boise is so ready for this type of prenatal fitness and education fusion.

What inspires you?

“People who feel passionately about their art, work, or lifestyle inspire me to do the same. Anyone searching for their own authenticity and ready to express it in creative and meaningful ways are people I want to surround myself with. The diversity of expression in our community is incredible and I'm so grateful to be a part of it."
