Clara Gharibo, BFA Dance, BEd.
I am a mover. I love to connect to others, myself and nature through movement. I am an avid dancer, baker, kombucha brewer and story-teller. I am a performer, dance educator and certified Kids Yoga instructor. It brings me so much joy to share my passion for dance, yoga and creative 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.

"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!"
"Our students absolutely LOVED their time with Clara during her virtual yoga workshop. Clara is such a captivating teacher and went above and beyond in her lesson planning to incorporate elements our young students could relate to and get excited about. She was incredible at guiding our students through different yoga poses and physical explorations as well as tailoring the class directly to the level of our dance students. She utilized storytelling, and visual cues throughout the lesson to help keep the students actively engaged both physically and mentally. We absolutely would welcome Clara back for another workshop, my students are still talking about it and they had so much fun!"

"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!!"
"My little cousin had an amazing time during her yoga session. She was so happy to show off all her new yoga moves after and says she can’t wait to go back! Clara is an amazing teacher!"
"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!"
"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."
