Leaps I've taken to initiate and lead programs include:
Nurture your art of being your self, trust your inspiration, heal your world by offering your gifts. Have faith...when you set out on a path with assured steps you can't see the end, or the end result.
"The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” ~ Agnes De Mille, American dancer and choreographer
At heart, I'm a dancer who began dancing and performing before learning to read. My long history as a professional performing artist (with PATH Dance, Room to Move, Ancient Rhythms,and AVAdance), and as a dance therapist, has given me an understanding of:
commitment; motivation; change; flexibility; partnering; nuance; expressiveness; presentation; connection; freedom; and an appreciation of beauty and excellence (my top VIA-IS signature strength). As a social worker and coach, I can add advocacy to this list. Yoga is a practice I dedicate to my students. Writing, particularly poetry, is a practice I dedicate to my muse (and my kind audience).
