“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill
During these intense times we are reaching deeper into our dancing practice to connect with our essence and find the inner strength, the ground on which we can stand, breathe and meet whatever comes our way. Our resilience will be boosted by a Yoga warm up with Arielle Wortzel from Philly.
Join our full "dance floor" Sunday morning and connect with beloved community near and far. You're invited to write messages of encouragement and creativity to show in your video view while dancing! 💕
Open your 👁s, dance with friends, and get your weekly dose of bliss!
