“I chose to be apart of luminesque dance because I wanted to meet new people, stay fit, be apart of a community and make a difference in the world of dance. When I come to luminesque dance classes I feel accepted and encouraged to grow.”
“Luminesque is probably the biggest confidence booster! There are many ways to get a boost but this is just a thing for me alone. A place I go and learn and build yourself up and meet like minded wonderful women and men who just want to dance and let loose and bring each other constant positivity and positive body love. I love the teachers and they really know how to pull the confidence out of you and tech unreal combos and they really know how to put on a show. 💓”
“This is where you can feel safe and explore dance with amazing and supportive women. There are no mean girls here… just women that support you and instructors that want you to feel amazing. It’s a community and a sisterhood and we dance!”
“I really missed being on stage and dancing. I was searching for something that got me moving to get physical activity. I was so nervous walking into that trial class not knowing anyone. If you don’t know me, I never do anything alone. It’s one of my biggest fears so this was a big deal. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had and am still having. I have met some of the most amazing women in this program. I got so much more than I bargained for when I signed up. It’s a dance program, so you get all the wonderful training but it has a strong, deep community that was started by Vanessa & Geneen themselves. It was the best choice to overcome my fears and start coming to class.”
“After suffering a significant injury in high school and subsequently giving up dance, I decided to give it a try again (15 years later!). I was super nervous at first, remembering all the rigid and intimidating classes when I was younger and was so surprised by how welcoming and fun the classes at Luminesque were! My body took a while to respond, but the instructors are all encouraging, supportive and understand proper body-mechanics to avoid injury. After getting back into dancing, I am in the best shape of my adult life and the added bonus is I have gained so many amazingly bad-ass female friends!”
“What I love about when I first attended one of the classes, is that I didn’t feel intimidated at all, maybe slightly scared, but I knew I could do this. I felt super comfortable and welcomed to come and be as I am. The dance teachers are super open with a great energy and vibe. It made me relax to just have fun and that is great.”
“Luminesque has given me a safe place to explore who I am. Dance is so much more than dance, and as someone who had little dance background previous to this, that was something I learned in Luminesque. Yes, we all came here to have some fun and shake what our mamas gave us, but I found more than that when I joined. I found a supportive environment where you are encouraged to tap into your soul and express yourself as an artist. It’s a place to be open in a world that often restricts us. The like-minded women you are surrounded with push each other up and I am so excited to continue growing on this journey with this community.”
