Featured Instructor of the Month: Krystal Bryce

21 Aug 19

Krystal Bryce is a Liquid Motion addict with a love for seduction and expressive release through movement. She has been a teacher of sensual dance since 2009 and has no plans of stopping anytime soon. You can find Krystal’s classes in Houston, Texas.

1. You’re a very active member of the Liquid Motion family, and we love your passion! Tell us how you got started with Liquid Motion.
Actually, this is an interesting story. It was 2015, and I was teaching at S Factor in Houston, Texas. The Annual Melee on the Bayou competition had just finished taking place. My students were all abuzz and could not stop talking about this amazing dancer who did all this stunning, smoldering floor work. They mentioned this new thing this dancer was doing was called “Liquid Motion®.” Since my students seemed to be completely enamored by this beautiful dancer, I decided I should check into her a little more. I signed up for the Level 1 Certification in 2016 and I haven’t turned back since.

2. You have quite a few different certifications under your belt. Why did you choose to get Liquid Motion certified?
Liquid Motion gave me more vocabulary for my body. The way it was (and is) broken down and explained was something I could get. I’m an adult learner of dance. I never had professional dance training as a child or young adult, so learning to dance is a little more challenging for people like me. I also found that since my body loved it so much, I wanted to share it. Therefore the certification just made total sense.

3. What is your teaching philosophy? Do you have a motto or mantra?
Be present in all that you do. If you are present when you move, you will find your zone. Finding your zone is the ultimate bliss. BE PRESENT.

4. What has been your most rewarding teaching experience?
Having a student tell me I saved her life. I gave her confidence. She found a reason to live again. Nothing can ever beat that.

5. What has been your biggest hurdle or learning experience?
Allowing myself to make mistakes. Nobody is perfect.

6. You’ve been teaching for a while and have extensive experience. Do you have any tips for others who might be thinking about teaching in the future?
I think one of the biggest things is to listen to your students. Not just what they are saying with their mouths, but what they are saying with their bodies. Are they scared, are they embarrassed, are they angry, confused, happy, or just plain done? When you are concerned about whether you’re “the best” teacher, you aren’t paying attention to your students’ needs. Furthermore, you aren’t allowing your personality to come through your teaching. Relax and enjoy your teaching journey. If you do that, your students will stick with you through thick and thin.

7. Where do you see yourself going in your movement journey? What are your goals?
I always feel like a beginner. I never feel like I have mastered anything. I don’t think that is a bad thing. I mean if we master something, then does that mean it can never change? Because I think change is important. Change helps us grow. My goals are to continue to move and continue to seek knowledge in how to share movement. I don’t care to be the best. I just want to always inspire people to live to the fullest.

8. What’s your all-time favorite song that makes you want to get Liquid?
There isn’t just one. There’s about a million. However I can always sink into “IDGAF” by Diamond Saints (feat Yaarrohs). I tend to love the naughty genre. If there’s such a thing…I’m all about it.

9. Do you have any hidden talents?
I can bake cakes from scratch like a mofo.

10. You often post on your social media about personal growth and development. What one piece of advice would you give to someone to step out of their comfort zone and try Liquid Motion?
You will open up a door to magic. That door will lead to another door, and that door to another. Don’t pass up an opportunity to be a part of something magical. Make it happen for yourself.

    I LOVE this!!! Krystal has been my instructor for several years…..most recently it’s been exclusively for Liquid Motion and floorwork. She gives me the encouragement to explore the way my body interprets LM movement and to own my style and flow. I am better, stronger and more fierce and my weekly sessions with Krystal on those smooth wood floors are a big part of the reason why. Love you, KB!!!! 💙💚💛💜
