PERFORMANCE | DANCE | FIRE | RITUAL | FACILITATION
Amber is a Contemporary Earth Dance Fusion Artist, she combines contemporary, urban, classical and multi-cultural dance styles with ritual theatre, prayerful intentions, mindful movement, and intricate costuming. Influenced by the organic textures, emotions, elements and shapes of nature, Amber creates a present prayerformance that is authentic, healing and inspiring; creating a visual translation of music. In addition to being a classically trained dancer, she is also a fire performer, teacher, ritual storyteller and ceremonial dancer. Amber is a intuitive improvisational artist as well as a choreographer. Her movement includes elements of jazz and modern technique, waving, popping, waacking, hip hop grooves, fire dancing, and lyrical storytelling. She has both a playful and prayerful presence on stage. The intention of her art is to connect with the audience and take them on a journey, blending the barrier between the performer and observer.
Amber's most potent ritual is to travel to different beautiful nature locations, listen to what the land has to share, channel the medicine from the earth, and create a offering back to the land with a movement prayer. With these movement prayer sequences she develops (from rivers, mountains, forests, oceans...), she teaches a class with each of these movements, then links them up for a full earth movement ritual, honoring the land. This offering is a combination of dance, choreography, Qigong, breath work, and improv flow.
Amber offers performances for festivals, private and corporate events, interactive character performance, costume design, choreography, and Earth Dance, hip hop grooves, contemporary and hip hop fusion classes and workshops.
