Born in England but of pure Chinese descent, I grew up with real questions about identity. My feet would tread on British soil but my DNA told another truth and I have continually been a seeker.
Not knowing where is really home, I found refuge in the home of my body and since childhood, in dance. In times of confusion and angst it is dance and music that has picked me up, and given me new perspective – time and time again.
Here I feel present, in the moment, fully connected. While dancing in nature; on mountain tops, in jungles, by the edge of the sea, in slow movement meditation or in wild ecstatic abandon, I have discovered insight, joy and freedom. An inner place called home.
I feel it is my mission to share this joy of dance and its far-reaching benefits . For us to regenerate and in turn for the regeneration of our planet and that is why I created Niio Dance.
