Following a 20-year career in the corporate high tech world, Byrne rediscovered her roots and a lifelong passion for dance. Raised in a world of rhythm and movement with a jazz drummer father and figure skater mother, she became a professional modern dancer. After giving up dance for many years, she returned to find her calling as a movement teacher and is now the owner and director of SomaSpace -- Studio of Movement Arts in Portland, Oregon. She also leads Wild Grace and DanceQuest transformational dance classes, workshops and retreats worldwide. Byrne believes the body is a source of wisdom, pleasure and joy in the present moment.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
