About Jamila

Jamila Kekulah is ever evolving in this space time continuum. Jamila is the creator of The Moving Soul, a holistic somatic movement practice that bridges the gap between soma, psyche and soul. They cultivate practices of awareness, sensing and feeling the potency of the bodymind connection. Their studies as a dancer, dance/movement therapist, Gyrokinesis teacher, zen shiatsu, and mindfulness guide ground their work. Jamila received their MA from Columbia College Chicago and BFA from Kent State University. As a movement artist, Jamila creates performances rooted in spirit, exploring the inner landscape of self, others, and nature. They are currently a 23/24 Co-MISSION artist in residence at Links Hall. In 2023 they were a New Works artist with Synapse Arts. It is their mission to guide folks into relationship with themselves and to be at home in their body. They envision a world where folks live, love, and relate with each other from an embodied and mindful place.
