We are thrilled to announce that that Daleep Kaur, DFBT is the recipient of the Dancing For Birth™ Instructor of the Year Award for 2016!
Instructor of the Year is an honor given annually to one outstanding Certified Dancing For Birth™ Instructor. Nominations for the award come from Dancing For Birth™ students all over the world. In their nominations they describe what they love about their instructors and about Dancing For Birth™ classes. It is no easy task to choose only one recipient, given how many dedicated and talented Certified Instructors there are worldwide!
She was a natural from the beginning…
I first met Daleep in 2012 when I traveled to Amsterdam from the USA to lead Amsterdam’s first Dancing For Birth™ Certification Training. Her face was bright with inspiration and passion and she contributed so much to the wonderful group dynamic. She became certified and started teaching soon after the training and never looked back. It is noteworthy to mention that Daleep is now both a Certified Instructor and a Trainer of aspiring Dancing For Birth™ Instructors. This is a huge accomplishment in a short amount of time. Daleep speaks multiple languages and has been instrumental in introducing Dancing For Birth™ to Russia, Ukraine and Israel, teaching several instructor trainings each year. What a wonderful ambassador she has been!
Her passion is infectious!
Daleep has a deep love for Dancing For Birth™ classes and their power to help families have great pregnancy, birth and postnatal experiences. Participants connect with their bodies and their babies, develop trust and confidence in the natural birthing process, and become powerful birthers by attending her DFB™ classes. Daleep values the Dancing For Birth™ community and continues to mentor and foster relationships within the Dancing For Birth™ sisterhood. She is a true leader.
When I surprised her in Moscow with the news that she had received this honor, Daleep did a happy dance.
Her class participants and instructor trainees are grateful for her dedication
In Daleep’s own words, accepting her award:
“Every time as I look forward to meet new participants and future instructors I actually know that I don’t just come to teach Dancing For Birth™ training but to learn from them too, share, connect and empower each other. Circle of women is a powerful place where throughout ages birth wisdom was passed on. Dance was always a natural way of communication, expression of emotions, feelings and conscious honoring of life transitions.
Dancing with mothers is not my job, it is my joy, my passion, my realization of life purpose. What can be more precious than to see the happy shining faces of mothers after dancing class! Or babies moving in rhythm with music! Happy mothers create happy children. Happy children create a happy planet. May we all through “dancing for birth” be architects of future life for next generations that they will build with lots of love, peace and respect to their mothers and Mother Earth.
Congratulations Daleep! You truly deserve this recognition!
