Born and raised in the heart of New York City, Courtney Ramm has followed her passion for dance since childhood, which led to a career as a professional dancer, choreographer, and teacher. She’s directed dance schools, performed, and taught all over the world, from Singapore to Thailand to Manhattan.
Since 2014, Courtney has led wellness retreats in Hawaii, focusing on empowerment and transformation. Courtney is the founder and artistic director of RammDance, a non-profit dance company. Courtney blends her love of dance with holistic healing, and is a certified Pilates instructor, Yoga teacher, Ayurvedic consultant, Theta healer, Master Detox Chef, and Reiki practitioner.
Alongside her focused training and career in dance, writing has always been one of Courtney’s passions. She knew she would write a book—although she never imagined her memoir would take such a twisted turn.
Courtney holds a Master’s degree from New York University in partnership with American Ballet Theater in Dance Education: Ballet Pedagogy. When she’s not dancing, choreographing, rehearsing, or nursing, Courtney loves to sing and play with her kids, hike in the forest, and drink fresh celery juice.
Eris Rising is her first book and was released in Fall 2020.
