Why I Dance
because I need to.
To get back into my body. To create energy. To create awareness. Because music moves me. Because breath moves me.
To connect with others. To live in the now. To learn about myself.

Why I Dance
To feel and express the harmonies of music and movement that is inherent in all living things. To understand communication of the human body. To feel alive, strong, and sensitive towards the world around me. To give a voice to the unspeakable. To share the joy of people coming together over the understanding that we are all human.
