I hope your summer was filled with movement, friends and fun! It was a whirlwind of dance for me – starting last May when I returned to San Francisco to dance again with the jazz dance company, then to the Berkshires in July to teach jazz at Berkshire Pulse, and lastly, the amazing opportunity to teach at Steps here in New York City! It had me questioning why I had put my dance on the shelf for so many years, and I realized the pain was still there that set the foundation for the work I do today.

June 2014 Newsletter: Happy Summer!

Posted by: Rochelle Rice In: Monthly Newsletter

It’s been a lightning speed month AGAIN. So much so that many commitments I had made verbally or otherwise – got dropped, overlooked or ‘fell through the cracks.’ I’ve been stuck in the ‘doing the same thing over and over expecting different results’ place in my life. But I keep going.

That was by far the longest, coldest winter EVER! When even my very optimistic, upbeat, energetic friends conceded it was a difficult winter, I knew it wasn’t just the estrogen leaving my body that might be bringing me down.

New York City: My favorite city in the world. Here is where I found my groove, where I launched my careers and grew my business. From jazz dancer to trainer to speaker, this city has been the backdrop to ALL of my professional fulfillment.

I am deeply rested. And I confused it with being unmotivated, blue, unsure how to move forward. Being unmotivated doesn’t even sound or feel like me. But it has been a very challenging 4+ months – personally and professionally. And I realized that the deep rest was so incredibly unfamiliar, that I mistook it for all things ‘wrong’ instead of ‘peace at last.’

From Gray to Grin!

Posted by: Rochelle Rice In: Life

Relentless. That’s what winter 2014 feels like. Never ending gray skies and snow! How do you move to grin and motivation when the temperatures (Midwest and Northeast at least!) make you keep your winter hat, gloves, scarves, boots and extra layers on? Here are my three suggestions:

I have always been the movement person. Transitioning from my career as a professional jazz dancer to a trainer came naturally to me because movement has brought so much joy into my life. I wanted to share that joy, and to inspire others to lead fuller lives through movement.
