Melanie Sirois, Dancer

Melanie Sirois, DancerMy life was transformed when I discovered the power of movement, play and consciousness. I’ve been dancing since the age of 10. Ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, hip hop, ballroom - you  name it! I was trained to do it “right” and yet I always felt like I wasn’t good enough and would never “make it”. 

I was guided to study at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies in NYC where I discovered the world of movement - authentic movement, improvised movement, creative movement, etc. A whole universe opened up to me. 

Play came along when I founded Inner Fire Movement (2017 - present) and began to offer guided dance experiences/journeys through various themed events and workshops to everyone and anyone who wanted to take a risk by moving, connecting and having fun.

Finally consciousness came into play when I discovered Core Energetics, a psychosomatic therapy with a spiritual branch. I am currently in my 2nd year of study in a 4 year program. 

Empowering myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually is what makes me the alchemist of my life.
