Who am I? And why should you work with me?
My name is Rashida KhanBey Miller. I am an artist. I love storytelling. I love to dance. I am passionate about using my training and experience in the arts to help women heal their body,mind and spirit. I’ve been teaching and creating brave spaces for women to reclaim sovereignty of the power for over ten years. I started teaching small dance classes on my University campus in Chicago guiding women to love their bodies into change. That work over the last decade has expanded in ways that I could never have imagined possible. And the women that I have encountered have truly changed my life. We are holding onto so much in our bodies as women. The pain, the heartbreak, the frustration, the systemic experiences of oppression, grief, desire and longing and it all lives in the muscle memory of our bodies - often going unexpressed. I help women articulate their stories through different art forms so they can reclaim themselves. When I talk about sexy in my work- I am speaking beyond this idea of physical aesthetic and talking about our joy, our peace, our wellbeing, our aliveness and the way we show up in the world. These things combined created our sexy. Reclaiming our sexy is the act of reclaiming our strength to not just survive but thrive in our day to day lives.
