Dance Forms: Nia

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Put simply, NIA (Neuromuscular Integrative Action) is a fusion of movement styles, including dance, martial arts and the healing arts. “NIA is an extremely free and fluid form of dance designed to help people connect with the joy of movement.” explains Town based NIA instructor, Nicci Gates. The steps are simple and repetitive, which assists the body to deeply relax as it moves and sways. It aims to create movements that are absorbed by the body without using any mental thought processes, making it somewhat meditative in nature. Visualisation techniques are also used to help create a sense of present moment awareness. The class uses an eclectic range of music styles selected to inspire a range of physical, mental and emotional responses. It demands no prior dance experience and is accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.
