"Greater mindfulness, increased focus and attention, enhanced confidence, improved connection between mind and body... these are just some of the incredible benefits of Dance!"
Life Lessons through dance
Drawing from her experience as a coach and facilitator, 3x Australian Champion Shadé Zed is able to share her insight from her professional and competitive dance career in one-to-one settings with clients, focussing on mind-body connection for both lead and follow, while incorporating concepts from psychology and the neuroscience of dance to enhance the learning experience.
For those who are thirsty to improve their dance ability and appreciation for latin dance, while gaining an understanding of their internal motivators and factors that could be holding them back, Shadé Zed is the perfect dance coach to accompany you on your journey.
She will work in partnership with you to develop goals around your dancing while systematically developing ways to achieve them at a pace that both meets your level of comfort, yet effectively stretching you to push yourself to be your best.
Selected Demos, Freestyles and Performances
Shadé has been a Latin dancer for almost a decade and is a recognised Australian instructor and performer. Having won 3x National Championships, she also represented Australia at the World Salsa Open in Puerto Rico in 2012, has taught workshops nationally and internationally and has trained Australian Champion teams. Shadé's differentiation comes from the fact that she finds her passion at the intersection of movement, dance, positive psychology coaching and mindfulness. Her area of preference is one-to-one training with individuals who recognise that they not only want to improve their dancing, but their entire outlook on life. One of her most proud experiences was being invited to give a TEDTalk and narrative dance performance at Australia's first official TED Conference at the end of 2017, sharing the stage with Aric Yegudken from Dancing with the Stars.
Shadé finds dancing the "perfect activity to balance a fast paced life in the city" and believes that everyone should have the opportunity to learn - She says "learning to dance comes with such a broad array of personal benefits, from physical fitness to training mindfulness an enhanced wellbeing. You should try it our yourself!"
