Building Dance Audiences

Dance lessons are always an investment into the joy of living and a way to express sentiments that otherwise could not be expressed with words alone.  Thank you to this wonderful family for opening up their community to the world of partner dancing. From wedding celebrations to anniversary parties and professional development, dance always serves a purpose-to unify. This weekend I will be presenting a special workshop entitled Dance for Community Engagement hoping to share a little insight into my dance world and the various communities that have benefitted from including dance tools into their community building strategies.
Share more dance in your community!
