that thrives because of you,
you dancers with energy and passion, commitment and desire,
a need for a creative outlet and a need for community connection.
A desire to feel alive, in the moment,
and to know that you matter, all of us in the circle, whether it be the circle in the dance studio, the circle at the hafla, or the circle of life…
we all count, we are all important, no matter what stage of life we are in….
think of the wisdom of the older dancers, the naivety of the younger, the curiosity of the newbies,
the skills of the trained, the stumbles of the fresh,
the pleasure of all….
