Heart and Hustle : Visionary Healers, Movers, and Shakers,

with your Tribal Hostess, Paulette Rees-Denis

and guest dancing queen, Christine Haviland, from New Zealand!

So fun to talk with my dancer Christine Haviland, from  Auckland, New Zealand! She is also a dancer in my Gypsy Caravan Dance Company, a Master Teacher for GCTB, and a mom, nurse, workshop leader and working hard gal!

The dance, this Gypsy Caravan style, is so much about connection that we all crave, desire, need, and love, and for Christine, learning to thrive as a dancer, and a teacher, while balancing life as a mom, and a nursing career as well. The Heart and the Hustle, all in all a great life… join us as Christine shares her views on making it all work for her, and for all she touches!

Watch and listen here!

More about Christine:

My Gypsy Caravan journey started in 2002 meeting and dancing with Paulette and her husband and musician, Jeff Rees, in Auckland, New Zealand. I already knew I loved the dance but the feeling of Dance connection was intriguing and I wanted to know what else it had to offer.

In 2009 I made the decision to go to Adelaide, Australia, I gained Gypsy Caravan’s Collective Soul Certification Level 1 AND Teacher Training Level 1.

Since then I have continued my role in this Sisterhood. I’ve explored my passion for our Dance which has also fueled my creativity enabling me to create my own range of Tribal Head pieces and accessories.

I am proud to say I am part of GCDC, Int, Director of Caravan Project Auckland and NZ, a student at CS level #6, Certified teacher Tribal Grooves®  in Level 1, (first in NZ) and most recently GCTB Master Teacher Level 1. In this newest role, I am excited to be able to take the Dance across NZ!  

My life circle embraces Family, Friends, Dance, creativity, Health & Fitness, uniting life, work and dance balance which feeds my contentment. I enjoy the S
elf-awareness and healthy mind set that evolves.
Being involved and sharing with others as they bloom as women and dancers is so rewarding and I feel honored to be part of that.


GC is so much more than just a Dance. There is such an intense surge of energy created in the circle when we dance, that connection is palpable to both dancers and those watching, its raw and inviting, a special moment, recreated whenever we dance, however big or small the circle.

It’s definitely a lifestyle choice which weaves its way insidiously through your life embracing and uniting in all areas. That shared experience growing together on so many levels; learning more about ourselves as the woman, the student, teacher, mentor and dancer within, it’s nurturing and grounding.
We refill, refuel and reconnect each tim
e we gather.


We are forging Roots of the GC tree of Dance … sharing the knowledge and the connection, our growth, our individual journeys and the growth of this Sisterhood.

The energy we share is powerful and woven across the Globe, this Dance unites us, I am fortunate to say I have a GC global family and have danced with women all over the world.
