JOELLE BARKER

Joëlle studied dance at an early age and continued her love for movement throughout her adult life, studying Yoga, Capoeira and other forms of bodywork and dance styles. As her musical career progressed, Joëlle felt the need to continue with bodywork. Being a drummer – although a more physical discipline – she felt the amount of sitting, be it in the theatre pit, long rehearsals or just the many hours of travelling on the tour bus, to remain an imbalanced amount compared to the actual performance.
