About Nia

Neuromuscular Integration Action

Nia is a system that blends Eastern and Western movements, concepts and philosophy derived from three main movement forms: Martial Arts (mindful precision), Dance Arts (personal expression) and Healing Arts (self-healing).

Nia brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit to optimum health through music, movement and self-expression.  Balancing technical precision with free-form expression, 

Each class is a journey of discovery, in dance and self knowledge.

Unlike other dance forms, where is a tendency to follow the leader or compare oneself to others, Nia is free from all judgments. One feels completely free to Move, and this is what gives such a power to this dance.
