What Dancers Are Saying!

Mellissa

Dance Artist/Teacher/Choreographer

Resilient Dancer has helped me schedule out time for myself at home to work on exercises specific for a dancer’s/my needs. It has also helped me gain more tools for myself within the classroom to help educate my dancers on different types of movement to strengthen and mobilize the body to help prevent future injuries.

Jo

Dance Artist/Teacher/Choreographer

I love getting the new workouts. They are so much fun and strengthen areas I may not normally pay attention to.

Rachel

Dance Artist/Teacher/Choreographer

I have noticed most how I have the ability to execute the movements that I want in my creative practice with strength and power! Akeisha mixes her dance and fascial knowledge to create a program that is rich in knowledge, and I've learned so much from that!

Orin

Resilient Dancer has helped me find agency and power in movement. Through the Resilient workouts I can show up for myself and take my dancing to the next level. The knowledge I have gained has not only upped my overall well-being as a human, but also in my creative practice and teaching! Sign Up Ya'll!

About Akeisha

Hi, Akeisha here! 

Movement Facilitator- Performer - Educator - Fascial Stretch Therapist - Choreographer - Producer !

Yup, just like the tree, the Acacia tree!

I grew up dancing just like many of you coming across this page! I studied heavily in Ballet and Modern techniques.

Fun fact, I totally thought I was going to be a dental hygienist, but life would have it a different way!

I graduated from Simon Fraser University School of Contemporary Arts, with my dance degree in 2014 and for 5 years co-directed WAREHAUS dance collective

Today, my movement practice is heavily influenced by Countertechnique, which often comes into my other creative and life practices, and especially the Resilient Dancer workouts to assist in powerful and easeful movement! 

Fitness came to me after years of suffering from injuries and overuse problems. In 2017, I suffered a foot injury that took me out of dance for almost 6 months. In 2018, after years of imbalance, fatigue and compensation I was forced to take another 3 months off dance to correct my body and build back the strength in order to function as a normal human being! 

As my strength got stronger,  I started to share my workouts on Instagram. Dancers started reaching out asking what I was doing and sharing how they started doing the workouts they saw in my stories. 

In August 2019 marked the birth of Resilient Dancer. It all started with a small group of dancers, with many still part of programs today. 

When I'm not dancing or coming up with the next Resilient Dancer workouts, I'm probably catching up on my TV faves (sucker for action and medical shows), making homemade cards and drinking far too much coffee!
