About Liz Legrande
CREATOR | ACTIVE CONCIOUSNESS
Liz reached the very pinnacle of the professional dance world, having worked as a dancer with artists, including Katy Perry, Beyonce, Usher, Thomas Rhett, & Ciara. Her work has taken her to a wide variety of outlets including films & television shows such as Glee, Dancing With The Stars, Shake It Up, America’s Best Dance Crew, Empire, Step Up Highwater, Genius & Behind The Candelabra.
Her expertise in dance and familiarity with trauma allowed her to truly understand the dance world & the wellness world - especially the problems and synergies within both. Her desire to heal led her on a journey of self discovery and scientific research, guiding Liz to live abroad to study a rare, ancient meditation technique. After integrating those modalities into her personal practice, she began sharing with others.
Additionally, Liz has always held a strong passion for social justice, inclusivity and issues of equality, especially in education, touring well over 100 schools as a mentor and leader. She taught thousands of kids mindfulness techniques to deal with the circumstances facing their everyday lives. This experience cracked her heart right open leading her to found and executive direct The Global Village, a nonprofit that breaks from the traditional mould. The Global Village embraces cutting edge techniques to create life-defining assemblies and support networks from world renowned artists, public figures, professionals and academics for children attending schools within underfunded public school districts in the USA. The Global Village is a mission to eradicate the effects of racial segregation in The American Education System.
Further, LeGrande has delved into the world of Neuroscience to discover the neural correlates of wellness, and incorporate them into her practice. Her methodology has a full time scientific advisor, including dual qualified MD and Neuroscience PhD, who helped Liz design a powerful evidence based breathing and dance technique designed to release traumatic memory from the body.
