Niio Dance with Helene Su

Helene Su creative elemental dance Niio Dance

Dance is Helene's first love, giving her joy, expression and freedom ever since she can remember.  Growing up feeling ‘displaced’, dance's unique synergy for mind, body, spirit and soul has helped to give her purpose and clarity, resilience and confidence.

Evolving her own elemental somatic dance programme from a lifetime of study both in the UK and abroad, Helene is committed to helping you to find personal tools for your vibrant health and wellbeing through Niio Dance.


She has presented talks and workshops in UK and Europe, including Spain, Holland and Portugal.


She has also worked in the London media, created her own clothes line, and worked in education in South Korea and Japan, delivering lectures and designing creative resources.

Seminal Teachers she has trained with include:

Anna Halprin (Life Art Therapy),

Mary Abrams (Continuum),

Linda Hartley (Bodymind Centering), Patricia Martello (Biodanza),

Marie Ware (Dance Voice),

Shiva Rea (Vinyasa Flow/

Yoga Trance Dance),

Dr Nagarathna (Integrated Yoga Therapy) Stephen Ornellas (Hung Gar Kung Fu)

to name but a few.


Her biggest teacher, however, apart from an initial eight years of intensive ballet has been thirty years of freeform creative, tribal and elemental dance practice on dancefloors both indoor and outdoor around the world.

‘I love your way of working with me. You have got such wisdom, humbleness and congruence’ 

Satu, Somerset

There are ongoing new discoveries in Body Mind research, some of which reinforce and confirm ancient teachings, and some of which bring fresh insight and Helene is continually updating with this new Somatic Movement and Dance Education and information in her work.


She would love to share with you its profound benefits, and to empower you to be your authentic, inspired and creative self, to be in tune with your body and in your flow in life.
