I sat down with Jess Grippo, creator of You Can Dance Again, to talk using movement to get unstuck + ignite creativity! 

We talk about how dance can be a gateway to reclaiming your creativity, uncovering unspoken emotions, and rewiring your brain AT ANY AGE + via any type of dance. 

My kind of conversation! 

Plus, we go over: 

~ (2:48) How to rediscover dance in your life (even if it's intimidating)

~ (4:30) The scientific reason movement leads to creativity + can get you from stuck to inspired

~ (7:50) Jess's unique Dance Into Your Answers method

~ (10:20) What the anxiety about my recent move LOOKED like in my body!!! 





*Don't miss out on the exercise you can do with us that starts at 7:50.


We'd love to hear how it goes, so share with us in a comment below: 

~ How did you feel your body/mind transform throughout this exercise?  

~ Has there been a time when your body had the answers (as opposed to your logical mind)?
