“There’s no denying it - the tough times continue. Though life presents challenge, after challenge, I see remarkable growth and compassion all around. Resilience is a word heard daily and our ability to adapt is stretched in all directions. I am awed by the senior artists who find ways to make a difference, who innovate before our eyes, who reach out through dance to lift our hearts. Dancing keeps our spirits up, bolsters our courage and moves us on a path toward the light.
I am so excited to share our 2nd online Older & Reckless- now more than ever. Now more than ever we need to play, to learn, to listen, to share, to love and to dance!"
