Community Movement: Nia with Visiting Teacher Kim Lane at Studio Sway

Visiting us from New Jersey, Black Belt Kim Lane presents the routine 'Under the Boardwalk' which celebrates all things 'Jersey! Kim has been a member of the Nia NJ community for the past 9 years and is thrilled to be in ABQ to share a uniquely NJ routine. Two years ago 9 members of Nia NJ got together to collaborate on creating a routine that celebrated our often maligned and unsung 'Garden State'. The soundtrack draws from some of our musical royalty: Whitney, The Boss, Miss Ella Fitzgerald as well as some of our more recent popular culture: The Sopranos and Garden State the Movie.  Kim says, "I have been blessed with living on four different continents; born in Australia, raised in South Africa and nurturing my family in the UK and the USA. I found Nia 10 years ago through friend in the Burning Man community. Ever since, Nia has enriched my life and invigorated my relationship to my body. I'm so excited to dance with your community in Albuquerque!"
