SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY UPLIFTING
Holly Sack is an inspirational Nia teacher. She energizes the group not only with her enthusiasm, sense of fun, and liveliness but also with her depth of compassion and insights. As someone living with advanced breast cancer, I look forward to the spiritual and physical uplift I get when I'm dancing with Holly and her class. She understands what I'm going through and motivates me to keep moving in her gentle way. She's excellent in suggesting ways to accommodate moves for those who have some physical disabilities. ~ Evie V.
ENCOURAGEMENT AND INSPIRATION
"In 2007, I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. After a bilateral mastectomy, 8 months of chemo, and a month of radiation, my mind and body barely were speaking to each other. Holly suggested that I join her Nia class--that dancing would help me. I have come a long way since that first class where my feet were always at least 3 steps behind my brain. I now have my Nia White Belt and have been dancing with Holly for almost 10 years! I have learned that if I dance joyfully, I dance perfectly for my body! Thank you, Holly, for your love and encouragement." ~ Midji
"Nia classes with Holly have become one of my favorite things to do. I started Nia after a year of treatment for breast cancer. With no breasts, no hair and very little energy, I started at my own pace (with no embarrassment!). Nia helped me to regain my new body, my energy and touch back into the sensual aspect of my being. Holly was a constant source of encouragement and inspiration throughout this journey." ~ Linda H.
"When I cross the threshold into her Nia class, my mind, body, and soul are transformed! Treat yourself with amazing movements guided by Holly. One of the best teachers I have ever had!"
~ Andrea B.
"Dancing Nia with Holly is a body movement exhilliaration! An experience I enter into where my body and soul connect, and my inhibitions fall by the side. The healing and grace of my fused spirit creates hunger in me, each time I leave . . . for more!" ~ Cathy
“I brag about Tucson’s wonderful Nia community and a large part of the credit goes to Holly Sack—for her loving, caring, creative approach to teaching us the movements she loves. She exudes love and gratitude in every way!” ~ Barbara M.
"It is an honor to dance with a teacher who provides for me a class that works my body, empty's my mind, fly's my soul into spirit, and invites me to release my emotions. Holly is a grounded, dedicated, powerhouse of joy, and honesty. I am continually impressed with her willingness to create outside of her comfort zone -- fabulous!" ~ Kimberly, Holistic Dance and Movement Specialist
"Holly and the Nia dance exercise which she teaches has become a necessary part of my health and wellness. Nia is about being positive and "dancing through life". Holly inspires me to be the best I can be and Nia aids my body to be as healthy as it can be. I love Holly and I love Nia!" ~ Beth V.
"When you celebrate Nia with Holly, you experience more than just a dance class. Holly has a way of connecting each person to their deeper selves by allowing the movement to be personal, soulful, inspiring, creative, and powerful. Each time she teaches, I feel a deeper connection to ME and walk away with an inner strength that builds and grows. From the music she chooses to her funloving nature, Holly’s authentic smile and fun loving attitude make each class a gift. If you have a yearning for something special with an added awareness of a greater perspective, then Holly is the teacher for you. You will be thrilled you found her and NIA!" ~ Karen C.
"Nia for me is all about harmony and dancing to and from the heart - laughter, fun, and playing! Holly's sunny loving energy makes her the perfect heartfelt instructor and Nia dancer extraordinaire!"
MAKES DANCING CONTAGIOUS
"I have been dancing with Holly for many years. Her spirit and her energy are amazing. Her joy in dance is contagious and makes each class a special, fun experience. She cares about each and every student and is a champion of our overall NIA dance community. I feel fortunate to have discovered NIA and Holly - they have changed my life in many ways." ❤️ ~ Jill S.
I’m a big proponent of Nia and especially of Holly’s Nia classes because she puts her heart and soul into every segment—and makes dancing contagious. I love doing the steps that Holly makes easy to follow and with her passionate blending of movement forms and music. Nia touches the energy of the little girl in tap-dancing classes and gives her the sophistication of a sensuous woman. Holly models the happiness that dancing is meant to be while infecting those in her class with the spirit she deeply feels!"
