For centuries, cultures around the world have utilized dance as a way to reconnect to something sacred within and in the greater cosmos. Dance gives us an invitation to explore our mind, body and soul and to look at all the parts of ourselves. It offers us a space for liberation on a personal and a collective level as we attune to our senses and find space to listen, observe, integrate and connect.
With Soul Shake, we get out of our heads and into our bodies, dancing according to our internal rhythms. We tap into the universal language and truths within us all. Drawing from traditions such as yoga, many different styles of conscious dance, moving meditation, breathwork, vocal work and energy work, I have developed this movement practice to invite participants to move consciously and connect with their physical presence, their emotional and mental states and with others.
You can expect specific musical arcs designed to pique you, body and soul. We move about freely with limited choreography and gentle facilitation that gives you the freedom to truly feel and embody anything that comes up during the practice. It is open to all ages, sizes, physicalities and levels of dance experience. All you need is a body and an open mind.

"I thoroughly enjoyed Liz's soul shake class in NYC. Liz created such a safe space for us all to drop into being fully present and authentic with exactly where we were at and the freedom of expression to literally shake out what was not serving us any longer. Liz is so free and wild and real in her own expression it naturally just calls that out of you when you step into her presence. Highly recommend these sessions, to all wherever you are at in your soul journey."
- Nadine Lee, Tantric Embodiment Teacher
“I attended Liz’s Soul Shake class in Brooklyn and it was such a lovely, transformative experience. Liz guided me through an expressive approach to movement and connecting with my body. I moved through so many different emotions during the practice. She took me on a journey of movement and dance as a way to process, celebrate, rebel, wallow, reflect and everything in between. There is no right or wrong way to shake your soul - you just feel it! Afterward I felt so invigorated yet also totally at peace. I highly recommend taking Soul Shake, or any class Liz teaches - she is an amazing and compassionate instructor.”
- Regina DiPerna, poet
“I will always remember my first encounter with Liz. I walked into Shakti Barre in Brooklyn to attend her Soul Shake workshop. She bounced over, bubbling with charisma and a contagious smile as she greeted me. I immediately felt safe and taken care of by her warm, comforting energy. As she led us through the evening, she held the group with a tremendous sense of care, respect, and reverence for the human body and the power it houses. Her carefully curated playlist & empowering guidance was the perfect catalyst for an evening of creative expression and remembrance of that power. I moved through many heavy pains that evening that I didn't even realize I was holding onto. I surrendered to the medicinal movement of the present moment and experienced pure bliss. Liz is a light-beam of radiance and Soul Shake is the path to igniting one's inner flame, the eternal sun. Burning & transmuting the pains that separate us from the truth of Love.”
