Hannah Beach is the founding director of Dandelion Dance. Combining her dance training with her background in social work, Ms. Beach facilitates in a manner that embraces all abilities and supports children and youth in exploring their feelings, ideas, and experiences through movement — and in extracting dance from within.
Her work also focuses on how dance can be a tool for encouraging inclusion and supporting self-expression, as well as a means for youth to connect with their communities about issues that are important to them. She is an award-winning educator and the author of seven books on movement and expression. Her books have been adopted by multiple school boards across Canada. A highly sought-after speaker and workshop presenter, Ms. Beach presents at numerous national and international conferences.
She is married with three children.
