Always Be Dancing Expressive Arts: Yoga and Flamenco for Every/body

Eve Costarelli, AdamAnt_Eve@hotmail.com & 617-216-1643

For over 20 years, I have been a teacher of flamenco, tap dance and yoga specializing in working with children of all ages and abilities; I practice a therapeutic and body-centric approach to give my students physiological and psychological benefits from these art forms. Through my accessible flamenco dance program and my educational and experiential flamenco performance/workshop ¡Olé Flamenco! along with guitar player, Antonio “Tiriti” Tran, brings the fiery art and history of flamenco to schools (K-12), colleges and universities, senior living facilities and many other community events. All programs are accessible, inclusive and adaptive.

As the lead youth yoga and mindfulness teacher for the Nourishing Teachers, Strengthening Classrooms project, I thematically integrate yoga and mindfulness strategies into academic curriculum in the Framingham Public School system and at Hoops and Homework, an award winning after-school program that offers academic and enrichment services to youth residing around the Beaver and Waverly Street areas.

I am available for private lessons, site specific work and parties.

Programs:

Performances and workshops are available for all ages, all abilities.

  • Educating about the history of the Spanish Gypsies and their contribution to the art of flamenco.
  • Helping students find their inner “dancer” though confidence building activities
  • Engaging families, children, adults, seniors and veterans by bringing stress relief and fun through dance, yoga, breath-work and meditation.
  • Specialty in creating Youth Development programs, inclusion programs for children on the Autism spectrum and other varied abilities, and programs that support Social Justice.
  • I perform flamenco with live guitar and singing.
  • I also offer flamenco and yoga parties, Wedding Yoga and Corporate events. Fees surprisingly affordable. Contact me Eve Costarelli at AdamAnt_Eve@hotmail.com or 617-216-1643

  1. Eve, I cannot believe that I have found your website on accident. Not sure if you remember who I am but I worked with you last year during an IvyChild event. I have never forgotten your style of yoga and your ability to connect with the children. Yet most of all I will never forget the encouragement you gave me as I was nervous (being my first yogathon) and you encouraged me to do my own thing, teach my way. You were right and I continue to pass that to children and adults alike!
    NAMASATE!

      • yes i did just like your site and i havea website with wordpress as well https://kerryglasier.wordpress.com/ and my facebook is https://www.facebook.com/kglasieryoga/. I am teaching I believe it s the first Wednesdy Yoga In the Park and I am also doing my second session of mindful based yoga in Worcester starting at the end of April. I have a chilren’s Yoga program mostly written up with a special needs part as well. It fits all th requirements for the yoga alliance but I am not a school nor am I a 599 hour RYT. So I will just have to plug away at thatbefore I unleash it. I keep fine tuning adding more information to it anyway. It most likely will have a core program (100 hour) then additional modules that one could take to suit their own needs. Do you traing teachers to teach children? Also do you have a home base or do you travel? I needto look at your site ome more these questions may already be answered. I like to talk to people who really teach children professionally and pick their brain if you dont mind!

      • Kerry, We can talk any time. I do not travel as I have a family and spend my time at home with them. All my work is based in Massachusetts. I do not teach at studios as I am not a fan of the yoga culture at large and prefer working in schools and community settings. I have private students also. I work with a non-profit in Framingham that has opened many doors for me to bring my program (Always Be Dancing Mindful Movement) into the Framingham school district and was invited to the Framingham Teachers Professional Development days and taught 4 sessions on bringing yoga and mindfulness into the school community. I am also working with the Natick Wellness summit and have a few workshops in the making. I am 500 hour certified but I am not RYT as I have not had the need to be registered through yoga alliance to do my work. I have my own unique offering and do not feel I fall completely in the yoga genre as I incorporate dance and rhythm into my work and do not feel I need anyone to certify me for that. When I do begin offering trainings that might rove to be different as people will want to be able to apply my offering to their needs and then I might need a verification form YA, but I am not sold on that. Right now I am working with other professionals who can apply PDP’s to their programs, so I am umbrellaed in with them.

      • Thank you for your support once again. I am currently in the middle of deciding on where i want to go with my yoga. I am 200 hour certified, RYT. Yet i wanted to start a non profit myself that works with children on the spectrum. I have a son on the on the spectrum. I also work with essential oils and find that they work well with children on the spectrum. So i am not sure what to do. I am think i may reach out to the local autism resource center. Ivy child has a spot for me to tech free of charge if i teach a class free of charge for special needs. Its on my to do list today to call and try to set it up. You are an inspiration. Namaste….Kerry
