What is The Kea Method?

The Kea Method is a new approach to dance training for performance preparation. It encapsulates key elements such as bringing awareness and connection to the mindset, emotions and the body of a dancer. Then we hone in on how to make storytelling a powerful aspect of a dancer’s training. The workshop is tailored to your studios needs.

Hi, I'm Kea. I can't wait to meet you and get started!

After years of feeling like I was never quite reaching my best potential in and out of the studio, I finally developed a program that became a total game changer for me and my dancers. In order to perform at our best, we need to feel our best physically, mentally and emotionally.

This 2 day Workshop combines a routine of mental, emotional, and physical practices every dancer needs to show up feeling energized and present to the studio, in performance and in life.

“For the first time ever I realized I wasn't afraid to perform. I took a deep breath and let go, and had the best performance of my life.”

After this workshop I feel more in my body and mind than in the 10 years I've been dancing. I learned to focus my mind on my movements and storytelling and not to bury the thoughts or emotions of “lifey” stuff, but how to use them like “creative currency”.

– Gemma

Real Results

“ For me, dance has always been more than just an after-school activity. When I first started dancing with Kea I was struggling to find my happy place, and I found it through the Kea Method.’’

This method has helped me feel like I can grow as a dancer and take care of my body. I felt an explosion of creativity when I did the workshop. If I ever feel lost or alone, I go back to my training with Kea and I feel inspired and invincible.

– Paloma

“I used to panic and get really stressed if I had an injury or pain, but now I just go through Kea’s routine.”

I love doing my Kea Method Self-Care routines! I need a routine that grounds me when I get home and keeps me on track with taking care of my body after hours of training. I’m now showing up to the studio the next day feeling refreshed and recharged so I can dance at my best consistently.

– Sadie

“No matter the backstage craziness, this performance routine has helped me to totally feel centered and ‘IN’ my body which has completely transformed my dancing.”

With my routine of visualization, confidence in my dancing, and breathing techniques, I feel so solid right before the curtains open and I have FUN the whole time I’m on stage.
