Kyle 'TooTall' Strauts is a passionate, innovative adventurer. What he is most noted for is his ability to dance with character, and connect with music. He is proud of his ability to convey musical understanding through dance to people of all ages, as well as the ability to keep it fun
and enticing. Kyle has a natural gift for teaching people through physical understanding, and breaking things down.
This ability allows him to teach in a very adaptive format for all ages, sizes, and learning styles. He loves to teach because he feels that passing on knowledge is a prized possession he would like more people to engage in. Kyle's style of living focuses on engaging people to move their body and mind. TooTall believes in showing people through inspiration and happiness that connecting with movement through intention, you can live a healthier balanced life.
Belle Taneda & Sophia the Blissful Bunny, Non-Verbal Communication
Ever wonder what it would be like to be a super hero? What if the only thing holding you back is the fear of your own powers. Ever since Belle Taneda was a little girl, she has always fascinated by super heroes. Belle has a background of over 20 years in Martial Arts. Teaching it professionally for just under 10 years, she has been to 5 World Chito-Ryu Karate Championships, being awarded the female Jr. Cup and 2 female Adult Cups back to back.
As Belle continued her journey, she started to gravitate towards being more gentle on her body by infusing her Martial Arts with the balance and focus of Yoga. Her passion for teaching is as playful as her inner-
child's wisdom of love. Children inspire her to keep learning and teaching from the heart and to honour her gifts to share with the world. Belle's inspiration to find the super hero within yourself uplifts others to start activating their inner power.
