I started my journey as a pole and aerial dancer shortly after starting to teach friends what I was learning in my living room. This led me to opening my own pole dance studio, VAMPS Dance, which flourished for over a decade. I found that I had a passion for creating safe spaces where others could explore their bodies and sensual movement as well as escape the everyday stresses.
After having to retire from professional pole and aerial dancing, I found Zouk which allowed me to learn how to dance with another human being and release control that I had always had when dancing with apparatuses.
My healing journey opened up sending me into the world of shamanic energy medicine and most recently active breathwork. I have gathered so much wisdom from my own path and personal struggles that I now combine what I have learned and offer them in intimate spaces for others to connect to their own inner wisdom and limitless self.
Currently Body Collective studio manager. In the future, you can expect to see Amber on the schedule offering breath and movement classes.
What to expect from a class with Amber
I never like anyone in my classes to take themselves too seriously and instead be in the moment and have permission to show up as is.
I love to use essential oils, lighting, and the perfect music to set the vibe for classes and experiences. I am a firm believer in having everyone say their name out loud and maybe an intention before we start class as it helps us get to know each other better and feel like a part of community and family as we move, dance, and go within alongside others, never alone.
Fun fact about Amber
As a child I played violin and clarinet!
