Dear Movers & Shakers,
What powerful times to live in. So much changing fast. And so much coming to light that needs our attention if we are to find our way forward to a more just, sustainable and fulfilled world. So many deep feelings rising. So much needing to be acknowledged. And to find our way, we need safe spaces in which we can let the heart move and give everything back to the dance. We have put together a series of resources, many of them free for you to use and share. We are listening as deeply as we can to what is needed from us. And we know how important our own practice is to us in these times. Wishing you and your families good health, safety from harm, and all strength and creativity to move forward step by step.

Across the board, dancers discover empowerment, responsibility, creativity and healing they didn’t know was within them. The practice uncovers the resources we all have within us to discover resilience, accept our imperfections and that, nevertheless, we have gifts to bring life. Dancers remember what really matters to them, how to embody their dreams and how, over time, to bring them into the world as part of inter-connected community.
