Human Nature Studio is a collaborative movement arts school providing instruction in various forms of dance, yoga, and meditative movement techniques. We believe movement arts classes should be affordable and available to the general population. We strive to provide quality instruction at as low a cost as possible.
Located in the downtown region of Flagstaff, AZ, we are a collective, which means several independent small business owners have come together to collaborate and share the same space. Collaboration in art is like living in the wild. If you come across a wild animal in the free, you do not just walk up to it and say hello and slap it on the back like an old friend. You stop, stay still and witness with held breath. Approach Human Nature Dance Studio in the same way, for the wildness of these passions do not come easily and it's beauty can slip away in a heart beat. We encourage you to become a part of that beautiful, fleeting heartbeat -- the cherished collective heartbeat of the artists of Flagstaff, AZ.
"Great art takes work. Not just on the part of the artist, though. Every work of art has an audience. When the artist allows the audience to find its own experiences and its own heart in the art presented, when we see ourselves reflected, art becomes transformative."
—John Tannous on Human Nature Dance Theatre
Human Nature Studio, and its offshoot dance company which bears the same name, Human Nature Dance Theatre, was formed in 1994 by long-time collaborators Delisa Myles, Jayne Lee, and Paul Moore.
