Charmaine is the instructor and Moving Arts Studio owner
My journey of movement began with dance at the age of four. Ballet was my love and focus and it helped to lay the foundation for all future movement forms. I went on to add jazz, contemporary and ball-room into my movement enjoyment portfolio. I taught for a ballet studio in Rondebosch and Houtbay for a few years. I then decided to continue on with my own dancing and danced professionally from the age of 21, later becoming part of the cast at Sun City, where I thoroughly enjoyed the exciting shows - 6, Movin’ and Fun & Games, later moving with the show to the Wild Coast.
On leaving the professional dance field I joined the fitness industry qualifying as a Personal Fitness Trainer, Aerobic Instructor and in 2002 as a Pilates Instructor and simultaneously worked for one of the leading Fitness Education companies for almost twelve years.
I continue to increase my knowledge by attending a variety of symposiums, courses and workshops. I recently added the wonderful experience of Nia to my repertoire with the White Belt Intensive course and I am hoping to offer the joyous experience of Nia at the studio soon. My belief in moving to stay healthy and vibrant in life is reflected in my varied interests throughout my life like: Swimming, Ballet, Karate, Scuba Diving, Hiking and Running.
In reflection: “To move is to stay connected. Through movement we can experience our live fully, vibrantly and with joy”.
My wish for my studio is that it is a place for you to 'be', a haven for you to experience the level of fitness you are looking for or to purely add moments of stillness and tranquillity in your daily life. It can be as challenging or as subtle as you wish.
