PRAISE FROM PARTICIPANTS
“We will be “moving it” long after the six day workshop, which is really one of the greatest benefits! Getting comfortable or less embarrassed about dancing was wonderful. I really enjoyed watching my child’s face. She continued dancing throughout her days after we left each day . . . she continued to experiment with her hew moves . . . I’m very grateful for her opportunity to learn the joy of creative movement.”
“Wonderful to see group come together with such kind and gentle facilitation”
“I wouldn’t change a thing! This has been a truly metamorphasizing week. All three of us have a new appreciation for movement and creative freedom . . . We have benefited as a family tremendously . . . Magic in the blending of the generations!”
“I really enjoyed experiencing the dance class with my granddaughter and I loved seeing the other children and their parents/grandparents enjoying this too”
“My children and I have truly enjoyed this program. It gave my children the opportunity to work with people from our community in a wonderful, new context. (The facilitators) created a warm and safe environment to express ourselves. I think my children and I will look fondly upon this experience for years to come.”
“It helps us to come out of our little box and establish confidence and self esteem”
“I very much enjoyed the intergenerational element and how accessible the experience was regardless of age, level of experience and income. I thought the kids were very skillfully integrated and engaged with creative alternatives.”
“With preschoolers and senior citizens whizzing past me, doing their own thing, I too felt I could do my own thing. It has been very freeing.”
“I loved the whole experience . . . I love it even more that I could share this experience with my children”
“It helped me to cheer up in a difficult moment I was facing (unemployed) After this performing, I’m starting a new job & I AM HAPPY. Thanx so much.”
“I felt privileged to participate in this excellent program which reaches out to the community in such a worthwhile way”
