New in 2018: We Speak Dance with Vandana Hart – a Netflix Original Series

January 4, 2018

WE SPEAK DANCE is a 5-part Netflix series that follows Alvin Ailey trained dancer and former UN advisor, Vandana Hart, throughout Indonesia, Vietnam, France, Nigeria, and is globally accessible.

Hart comes from a very interesting and impressive background. Being able to merge dance, arts, culture, as well as global politics first handedly, it’s no wonder this unique series has already been a sensation. Hart’s aim was to expose dance as a “political weapon” and how villages, underground groups, and the stage can bring people together through these outlets around the world.

The Movement Blog Turns 2 Years Old!

April 4, 2017

Happy Birthday to The Movement Blog 🎈

Our blog baby is officially 2 years old! In the beginning of April in 2015, I wrote my first post on what this blog would be about and some basic points on the GYROTONIC® Method. Come April 15th, The Movement Blog received over 4,000 + visits in one day after my post called, ‘5 Reasons Dancers Should Take the GYROTONIC® Method.’
2 years later, we are taking the blog around the world. Here’s what we’re up to now.

First of all, thank you EVERYONE for your interest and increasing The Movement Blog’s popularity day by day, country by country. This is why we’ve said, ‘The Movement Blog is Officially Global‘! I’m ecstatic about the various topics we will write about and what we will see, record, and research over the months.
Secondly, I also want to thank you those who has shared and referred The Movement Blog to someone else or through their blog/website, especially the Dance and Gyrotonic community. It is truly my passion to continue to give back and create a platform for both the up-and-coming and the seasoned professional.

What’s next? Well, my fiancé, Rob, and I will be travelling for the next 6 months in Southeast Asia, Africa, the States, Europe, and South America. Our intentions are to draw inspiration from the places we visit and relate to our favorite topics: health, fitness, wellbeing, the Gyrotonic method, the Gyrokinesis method, dance, and data.

The green dots are the places we’ve already visited in 2017 and the blue dots are the places in our itinerary for the rest of the year. We just left Hong Kong and are currently travelling in Vietnam from the South (Ho Chi Minh) all the way to the North (Sapa). And let me tell you, I already feel healthier and more fit just from the lifestyle and the food alone (not to mention sweating everyday in smoldering hot weather).
That’s it for now! Feel free to email us with any questions, comments, or even just to say ‘Hello’. Looking forward to writing about our journey and the people, places, and activities we encounter.
Big hugs,
Kindall & Rob
