My name is Michenoelle Provence, the founder of Limitless Movement.

I’m a professional dancer for over 19 years in Salsa, Afro and Contemporary Dance. I’ve shared my passion of dance in over 45 countries, teaching in over 175 salsa congresses worldwide. I was living the dream of an artist you can say. No, I wasn’t. But I didn’t know that yet. In 2014 I hit “rock bottom”. I lost my purpose as a dancer. Arts, what always have been a safe haven for me became a burden. I felt stuck. I operated in an entertainment scene but I wasn’t interested in making someone laugh. I want a dialog with the audience and with my students, an emotional connection. I am very grateful for all the chances received all these years from promoters to expose my arts, for students for their trust, but nonetheless, I felt stuck. What I was practicing, what I was perceiving, wasn’t me anymore.

With help of great mentors, I somehow got back on track, that’s what I thought at least. Getting new perceptions but still exercising them in the same place (Salsa -Congresses) became even more of a burden. It tore my soul apart. While being in this dark place, still traveling, performing and teaching all over the world, I got exposed.


I was in Cape Town, South Africa at that time, teaching an Afro Movement Workshop at the MZansi Cape Town Salsa Festival and almost at the end of the workshop a student asked me a question which made me feel naked! Exposed. She asked: Can you move instinctively for us? BOOM! At that moment I got confronted with the fact that everything that I was doing up till this very moment was a lie. I put a song on and started moving. I felt fear in Motion for the first minute, and then all of a sudden, I felt a warmth, I felt a connection, I felt safe. I couldn’t identify this moment. 4 months after this I watched a documentary on IDO Portal - Just Move, which changed my life.

The 19 years of experience in all of these techniques in dance got me stuck in just one perception of dance or movement and it made me realize that there is so much more. I had to de-attach myself from all the knowledge and the image that was attached to that knowledge and completely rewire myself to focus on what truly really amazed me: Movement.

I had to explore. I had to accept, that I had all this knowledge of all these techniques, but I had not much of a clue of movement. And therefore I could never connect to my own identity. Then I founded Limitless Movement, a method that fuses all the techniques that I’ve trained, but shapeless, borderless to have a much greater purpose: connect people to their inner landscape, to their best version through movement.

Movement saved my life. I turned my back to my old career in the salsa scene, where I was very successful with a dance studio and all of that. It wasn’t my dream and purpose anymore. So I moved to a different country, clueless, without a plan. But re-energized after being depressed for over 3 years.


Now I’m still living on my friend's sofa but this friend is also my partner in Limitless Movement. Her name is Meike Portegies. She’s a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague as a Musician and is a passionate community leader, she brings arts back to the people. Our purposes linked and we started making plans. I had to relearn to dream again, as a Mover, as a Dancer, as a Choreographer, as an Educator. After introspection I came out with this clarity:
My dream is to be fully in my creativity and connect people with their utmost best versions. Therefore, I use these outlets of creativity:

  • Educator/Teacher of Weekly Regular "Be Your Mambo" Classes in Amsterdam

I use my 19 years of experience in various dance techniques such as Mambo/Salsa, Afro, Afro-Cuban, Cuban Contemporary, Modern Dance and fuse them together in a weekly class open for everyone to reach an even greater purpose: more awareness and exploration of the human body and its possibilities in arts.


  • Connecter
We organize Limitless Movement Retreats where movers of all over the world can come together and have Bootcamp style training in the physical and mental aspect, such as Yoga, Afro (with Live Percussion), Salsa, Body Conditioning, Hiking, and Excursions. Together we grow!

The Next Limitless Movement Retreat is in South Africa from January 06th - 13th 2019.

  • Choreographer:
I love to create. I love to tell stories. I’m a music lover. I love putting together theatre productions with live music to express different genres in movement and send a message of joy and peace. Starting from the bottom, I invested every single dime I had into our latest production
"THE SPIRAL" which was such an amazing process. I had attendees of 25 - 55 of age.

A group of movers, dedicated to breaking their own personal boundaries. Some of them never stood on a stage before and were super thankful to be able to experience such a journey. I was left completely broke, but it was 100% aligned with my purpose. I love the process of the build-up, the community building through members, the joy, the serious moments, the rehearsals, the panic attacks before execution lol, working with engineers for lights, Meike having the complete responsibility for sound, from the mood when attendees enter the Theatre to the live music during the production. It makes me smile like a little boy.

Musician:
Having met Meike Portegies made me feel more confident and determined about our goal, to bring arts back to the people, cause it came from the people. -Alvin Ailey. Being in creation mode to have an impact in sound and movement is so fulfilling but a struggle, as well as the bills, have to be paid as well. Creating music that goes together with the emotions we (limitless movement team) want to express is such an important aspect for me. 

I’m all of this above! I want to create a platform of limitless movers, by exposing them to my inner landscape and giving them the confidence to pursue it as well. Movement is what makes us feel alive.
