Facilitator: Maya started dancing on and around furniture from a young age and she naturally took to the world of physical movement. In her late teens and early twenties, dance floors became open space to express. Maya was exposed to Ecstatic Dance and the work of Osho in the 1990’s. While living in Korea, she would plug in her cassette player and dance around the cultural temple, late into the evening, when the city was falling asleep. Some 13 years ago she discovered Contact Dance, a music-less form of dance exploration with partners. For the past 4 years Maya has been part of the Toronto 5 Rhythms scene. She has cultivated her own movement practice with weekend intensives taught by a variety of teachers including Kathy Altman, Adam Barley, Evangelos Diavolitsis, and others. Last year she partook in a 5 and 7 day dance intensive with Open Floor teachers in the USA. In June 2016, a profound Tango lesson while in Argentina opened her understanding of relationship movement further. The practice continues..
