Inviting people to use and experience their bodies in new ways is crucial to my work in community settings. Whether the focus is on communication, cohesion, health, expression, celebration or skill development, we are all the time increasing our understanding of what movement and dance might mean. The privilege of working with new groups never tires. I am, each time, inspired by our collective desire to communicate and play through movement. I love working with people; dancing with people.
