My Philosophy

My name is Jesus S. Acosta and I dance to connect with myself and others. When I move my body to the rhythms of music and nature, I find truth, joy and community.

I believe

Dropping into my body –through breathing, movement, feelings and sensations– is fundamental for being a whole, grounded and joyful human being.

Welcoming all aspects of ourselves, the parts that thrive and the parts that ache is the foundation of our relational lives.

Dancing from inside, listening and following our primal rhythms, is the way for sweet attunement and flows in our tango.

An environment of heartfelt embracing heals everyone.

Silence and pauses are essential to know what’s true, breathe into the moment and know where you are.

How did I get here?

One threshold at a time

I woke up one morning with a nagging voice inside, a desire to start a new creative project. It was November 2019 and I was hungry for expression.

At the time, I was attending a weekly 5Rhythms practice in London and feeling compelled to share findings and thoughts triggered by freely moving my body in a collective of dancers.

Creating a new website/blog about dance and movement resonated strongly inside.

Very soon, in collaboration with Ieva Kelpsaite, Dance in Conversation was born, a confluence of perspectives, a community engaged in understanding how dancing transforms our lives.

My wells

The Moon and its magic, and being close to nature and its teachings is the current state of affairs I thank Tilda Storm for. She always brings depth and inspiration to my days.

Magic and devotion are central in the world I’ve witnessed with Vaishnavi Brassey. She introduced me to kirtans, spiritual singing, improv circles, and the forest. She has challenged me to walk the path of full and honest expression of my needs and desires.

In the last few years, the Embodied Intimacy community has become my nook for learning to be a real, loving, and open man.

I crave solitude with the same intensity as I long for a hug. There is beauty in connecting to oneself while expecting a rain of others’ love. It’s where I am today: Into me seeing, and finding others.
