CHRISTAL BROWN (Mother | Artist | Educator | Disciple | Coach) is the Founder of INSPIRIT, Project: BECOMING, the creator of the Liquid Strength training module for dance an Associate Professor of Dance at Middlebury College and the CVO of Steps and Stages Coaching. LLC. Brown received a BFA in Dance and a minor in Business from UNCG and her MFA in New Media Art and Technology from LIU. Brown is a native of Kinston, North Carolina, where she remembers cleaning up on Saturday mornings as a child to the music of the Chi-Lites, Marvin Gaye, and Shirley Caesar. These rituals innately produced a strong desire in her to make all work melodic, sensual, meaningful and set to music. Brown has danced since she was released from the confines of piano lessons at age 9. By navigating her way through narrow corridors of segregated understandings onto the stages of beautiful theaters, community centers, churches, classrooms, and cultural epiphanies, Brown has found the true meaning of grace. She is a mover, a warrior of change and transformation, living out experiences her double amputee father recounted from his war-ridden dreams. The melodies in her body are melancholic and brought to life through the music; seen rather than heard through her choreography. Brown 20 plus years as an artist and educator have been combined in her work as a Life Mastery Consultant, certified by the Brave Thinking Institute. Browns transformational approach to coaching, facilitation and consulting has been the catalyst for personal and organizational growth. For more information visit www.christalbrown.com
