Clara Gharibo, BFA Dance, BEd.
I am a mover. I love to connect to others, myself and nature through movement. I am a choreographer, dancer and dance educator. It brings me so much joy to share my passion for dance and embodied movement with people of all ages. With each person I have the pleasure to work with, I find I am not only the teacher but a student as well. I love what I do and I can’t wait to share and grow with you.
Let's Get You Moving Today
"I started ballet as an adult more consistently, and group classes were too intimidating for me. Clara lets me move to the music that moves me, and lets me express my emotions through dance when I can’t any way else. I notice improvements with every lesson that I take and can not wait to see what my body can do."
"Clara did an amazing job choreographing and teaching us our wedding dance. She was thoughtful, patient, and dedicated to ensuring we do a great job."
"A love of dance is something they will carry with them for the rest of their lives so I am very grateful we found Clara when we did. To watch both my children dance around the house whether someone is watching or not....completely uninhibited is a gift that I believe Clara gave them. I strongly recommend Clara if you are looking to have more formal training or just to have fun with dance and express yourself!"
"Clara is a gift. I was completely new to dance, I always had a love for it, but never pursued it. As an individual with anxiety, I wanted it, but was all kinds of nervous about doing it, to say the least. By the end of the first lesson, I was hooked. I am immensely grateful that she helped me explore my love of dance, and I am so glad that I was able to start out with her as my teacher. She is the best individual to learn from because she is patient, kind, and she herself dances with so much passion, and elegance. She taught me to love every way I danced because there isn't a wrong way to dance. As long as you feel it, it's real. Clara is a gift, anyone considering or nervous to experience dance, I wholeheartedly encourage you to ask for Clara because she is everything you could hope for when you're just starting out."
"Thank you for the incredibly warm, loving, cozy vibes you provided tonight during cozy movement! As a non-dancer, I was a little scared but you put me at ease right from the beginning and it felt so good to explore and move my body! I'm so inspired by your website and what you said about being able to move well into our 60s and I loved just exploring movement freely and in a safe environment. You are so warm and that warmth translated even over zoom and I cannot thank you enough for that! That was so fun and I feel so good!!"
"This was our first partnered dance class and it was extremely fun! Easy to follow and Clara is an excellent teacher! Perfect for date night! Highly recommend!"
"Clara's partner dance workshops are amazing! My husband and I have gone to several and we always have a great time. Clara creates such a fun and positive atmosphere and it makes for a perfect date!"
"Me and my Fiancée got lessons for our first dance for our upcoming wedding. I cannot stress enough how much fun this was, It has been my absolute favorite part of wedding planning. My fiancée never thought he was a dancer but that quickly changed 5 minutes into the first lesson. She made it so easy for us to learn and for the dance to look good without it being complicated (which is what we wanted). She had the entire dance ready to go with our song we chose the first lesson, even had her husband there to really show us how to do some of the moves correctly. I cannot recommend Clara enough and think its a must do for any couples thinking they might want a little structure behind their first dance, or to just have some fun together. Thank you Clara for everything, but especially for being our cheerleader through the practices!"
"I had no idea what to expect with Clara’s movement session, and I loved it. I genuinely smiled and laughed to myself, and danced for fun. There were goosebumps and lots of raw emotion too. She is amazing at what she does!."
"My husband and I now have a beautiful, easy to follow and remember wedding dance that we can perform timelessly for the rest of our lives. We loved all of our lessons and are so impressed with how our dance turned out. Easy to schedule and communicate with despite the Covid challenges! Thank you for making our very special wedding gift that much more special."
"Clara is an incredibly caring and attentive professional who knows how to run a business with care and compassion. She has repeatedly gone out of her way to make things work if any barriers to accessing her services come up. She is creative, approachable, and talented, and is a great person to see if you have never moved/danced in your life, or if you are more experienced.
For beginners, I highly recommend her Cozy Movement Sessions and Workshops!"
