As a "Life Choreographer," Lora has always been passionate about dance, and the processing of emotion through dance and movement. When she met Kellita, "the Showgirl Shaman" who does similar work, focusing on movement, joy and coming home to the body, she knew that their worlds would need to intersect!
This yummy interview features Kellita Maloof, founder of the Hot Pink Feathers Dance troupe, and creator of Showgirl Awakening. Even if you've never danced a day in your life, if you have the desire to come home to your true essence, Showgirl Awakening is for you!
ABOUT SHOWGIRL AWAKENING… Hot Pink Feathers Showgirl Academy offers Showgirl Awakening. Where shy women who’ve grown accustomed to looking outside themselves for validation and acceptance, learn to stop editing their bodies, voices and spirits. Rather, they blossom into their fullest selves, reveling in their bodies, revealing their true radiant essence and receiving all that they deeply desire. I believe the most divine canvas is the female body, mind and spirit. I believe that when we pay attention to our bodies, we begin to acknowledge our feelings. When we acknowledge our feelings and experience, and accept them, we begin to shine. And as we express our natural radiance, our deepest desires and true purpose are revealed. This shining, radiant expression of our inner truth begins to attract the experiences and communities necessary to co-create our dreams.
BEFORE SHOWGIRL AWAKENING… I started Hot Pink Feathers to re-ignite the JOY that I remembered from my very earliest experiences. By the time I did so, these memories were barely whispers, but enough to light a path. As a girl, I was SO self-possessed. I knew how to care for myself like I was my own child. I had a direct line to my body wisdom and it never failed me. As a teen, a traumatic experience literally severed this body wisdom, and left me rootless, lost, and yearning for the feeling of HOME. I spent years literally traipsing around the globe, thinking that I could find that home somewhere outside of myself. Remarkably, that HOME was always with me – it was my own body! I encountered saucy shimmy-filled dance in my late-twenties, and it was like a wake-up call back into my body – back to HOME! As my radiance expanded, I soon began attracting others to share this excitement – I created Hot Pink Feathers Dance Company, and began training Showgirls to perform alongside me.
THE BIRTH OF SHOWGIRL AWAKENING… As I reconnected more with my body, I began to show up more and more in my life! My on-stage experiences were simply a taste of what was possible at all times. That’s when I realized the true definition of a Showgirl: a woman who revels in the splendor of her body, reveals her true radiant essence, receives what she desires & thereby shows the way for her sisters To be the Showgirl I was meant to be required that I express myself fully and uniquely. I realized I was here to offer Showgirl Awakening.
