Rachael is a healer and believes in the potential of all human beings. She loves and accepts herself and others. What she knows for sure is that music and dance is healing for the soul. She is never been happier than when she is freely dancing and loses herself in the music. She feels most alive when she is connected to herself. She shines when she is in her element and speaks from the heart. If she had a super power it would be to free everyone of their fears. What she wants most in the world is to help families be more whole and balanced. She was born to work with children and families.

Mission: The goal is to positively connect to your child through creative movement as we explore communicating non-verbally and have fun dancing, creating, and playing together.
Through dance and movement, we can express ourselves in a way that connects the body, mind, and spirit, which allows us to be more present and connected to ourselves and to others. At Moving HEARTS, LLC, we believe that creative movement allows for play, relaxation, and listening. Through the use of movement, we can see metaphors that are insightful and inspiring. In order to change the world, we must start with the individual family unit and support your family in the best way possible.
Whether you prefer a private session for your child, a private session for yourself, a group session, or a mother and child session, there are plenty of ways to express yourself and connect to your child, your family, and yourself. Your whole family is welcome to join in, relax, play, learn, and dance.
CANT WAIT TO MEET YOU!
