They dance in their head.
They dance in silence, ripples of movements inside.
And it works!
The energy, the joy, the connection, it's all there!

In teaching and learning dance, we are companions in a journey with...
- inner voice,
- inner movements,

And through our inner dance spirit, we learn to dance as a simple and natural energy flow.
