Brain Dance - Laying the Groundwork

Saturday, June 25, 2016


The BrainDance is a full body-brain exercise based on the neurodevelopmental patterns through which human infants progress in their first year of life. This presentation will identity and explore how the BrainDance feeds the brain, re-patterns the neurological system and develops flexibility, connectivity and alignment for all populations.


Dionne Kamara started learning traditional Kumina dances as a little girl in Jamaica under her great-grandmother's guidance. After moving to the United States she attended and graduated from Fiorella H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts where she received the Helen Tamaris Award for excellence in dance and from the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center where she was a merit scholarship student. 

Her professional performing career includes working with choreographers Zvi Gotheiner, Man Hong Kang and Elisa King to name a few. In 1996 she joined the world renowned dance company Urban Bush Women with whom she has toured nationally and internationally.

Dionne is currently a teaching artist in New York City teaching dance to people of all ages. She is honored to also teach with her mentor Anne Green Gilbert at the Summer Dance Institute for teachers in Seattle, WA.

For Dionne, dance is for everyone and anyone. She believes that if we dance together and try on each other's movements we will have a better understanding of each other and ultimately ourselves.
