What if going to dance class helped students feel better about their body, rather than worse?

Dance class is the perfect place to be in awe of your body.

We balance, leap, turn, stretch, create, defy gravity, build muscle and shape grace with our bodies in dance class. We do amazing things, all of which should make us crazy respectful, and in awe of our bodies.

So why do so many dancers wind up with body image insecurities, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, injuries, and burnout?

It's time dance classes taught dancers to focus on all the ways their bodies are strong, capable, adaptable, and resilient; rather than teaching them their bodies are too big, too tall, too round, too weak... too much, and yet not enough at the same time.

Join the Body Kind Dance Club, where dancers befriend their body, calm the inner critic, and rise with resilience.

Build a bridge from where they are, to where they could be.

That's what we do in the Body Kind Dance Club!

For too long, dance education and dance culture have placed looks, performance, and competition before the mental and physical health of dancers.

But what if...

  • Going to dance class helped students feel BETTER about their body, rather than worse?
  • Dance teachers had powerful practices to support body image resilience, and mental health?
  • The trends of the last few years that caused dancers, and teachers, to constantly be on the verge of a nervous breakdown could be reversed?
You have to guide them across the bridge... we can't just wish the frustration away, or hope dancers grow out of being withdrawn and worried.

The monthly resources you'll get in the Body Kind Dance Club are what bridge the gap for students; going from absent to engaged, self-critical to self-confident, and indifferent to driven!

Your Instructor


Hey there! I'm Katrena, the CEO of Different Drummer Dance, a dance studio and online education platform on a mission to bring much needed mental, emotional, and physical wellness to dancers and dance teachers.

As a former professional dancer, I desperately needed wellness tools on body positivity, growth mindset, and mental health. If I had had knowledge and resources on these topics as a young dancer, my career would have been totally different: longer, healthier, and way, way happier.

Once I began teaching professionally, I saw even more clearly how much my students also needed these skills. I was tired of seeing dancers be obsessed with body image and restrictive eating. Tired of seeing students plagued by self doubt, comparison and self hatred. Over the burnout, constant injuries and toxic language, habits and traditions.

So I decided to start creating the resources I had needed as a young dancer and teacher. My courses, workshops, webinars and resources focus on creating the change I want to see in the dance world, and creating a more inclusive, diverse, equal and kind dance industry. Because I believe it’s time we left dancers better than we found them.
