Dani Nobrega – Canada – Director of Education

I am very passionate about spreading truth, love, community and authenticity through GROOVE. From my own experience, I gained a greater sense of autonomy and clarity on my life’s purpose through simply grooving. It was a transformative experience and grooving continues to be my practice for mind, body, heart connection.
I feel very blessed that now I can combine my work as a radical/critical educator and researcher with GROOVE. Currently, I am researching how GROOVE improves the school climate while inspiring independent, critical and divergent thinking – both things necessary for revolutionizing education systems. I also have a deep desire to bring GROOVE to distressed communities around the world. Over the past ten years, I have done extensive development work in the Caribbean and Latin America. As I have experienced the healing and therapeutic effects of GROOVE firsthand, I see how beneficial our programming could be in socially marginalized and economically stressed places. I can’t wait to see what we will create as a community.
I am so honoured to be part of such a powerful movement and work with the most inspiring, loving and awesome people!
