“It is a very simple, yet powerfully effective concept that gives people permission to be creative and the confidence to dance their own unique dance.”
Misty Tripoli, founder of The World Groove Movement™
What is Body Groove?
Developed in 2007 by Misty Tripoli, the founder of The World Groove Movement™, Body Groove is a simple, unique and exciting dance experience that nurtures the body, mind, heart and soul. Groove is inclusive, no matter what your size, shape, gender, age or fitness level*.
No dance experience is required – if you can move, then you can Groove!
At Groove, simple moves unite the class – there are no complicated routines to learn. You are invited to be as expressive as you would like and dance the moves in your own unique way. Your way is the right way – there is no right or wrong way to dance!
The Groove Truths
NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE – And if they do, it’s their problem!
YOUR WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY – There is no right or wrong way to dance!
NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR YOU – Take responsibility for yourself!
YOU SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT – You are unique, you should look different!
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING UNTIL YOU APPLY IT – These are just good ideas until you practice!
The Potential Benefits
A healthy body is the foundation of a healthy mind and soul. Movement and music have a positive and healing impact on your mental and physical wellbeing**.
We are social creatures! Raise your energy levels with your fellow dancers and build friendships with like-minded souls.
Modern life can be hectic. Taking time from your busy day to focus on your health is necessary for you to be your best self.
A judgement-free zone, Groove is a deliciously simple workout experience that can help you build confidence needed to be yourself and thrive in the face of life’s challenges.
Passionate about all genres of dance from a young age, Nicole discovered the beautiful simplicity of Groove in 2017. Wanting to incorporate this joyful and meditative dance experience into Paragon Holistics’ existing therapies, Nicole became a fully certified Groove facilitator and is training to become a Groove Designer. She is also an active member of the Groove global community.
“I just cannot tell you how much Groove has changed my life, my confidence, how I express myself, and I have seen this with my participants. Their confidence levels have soared, going from dancing with their heads down to now watching and loving themselves in the mirrors as they Groove around the floor.”
Nicole Watson, Paragon Holistics Founder and Groove Facilitator
