“What is it that you really want to do?”
“Ummm… Well… I want to travel, I want to dance, I want to teach, I want to learn, I want to give back, and I want to inspire others.”
“So do that.”
“No ‘buts’. Do what makes you happy. Do what you feel you are called to do. Do what inspires you. It doesn’t matter what other people think or want you to do.”
That was exactly what I needed to hear. From that moment on I knew what I wanted to accomplish. I also knew it would take a lot to make it happen, but I was and am willing to put the work into it. It’s out now anyway. There’s no going back now. I put it out there and I am going to dive in, full force and without abandon, to make a difference with this life of mine.
So what is it, exactly, that I am setting out to do? It’s simple, really… CREATE, COLLABORATE, COMMUNICATE, and CONNECT. My goal is to circle the globe, bringing together communities, inspiring dancers, artists, and people to do the same using dance as a positive means to give back and do more. All the while learning how we are all different and unique, yet, we experience similar trials, struggles, heartbreaks, joys, celebrations, hopes, dreams.
Uniting the world through movement.
Dance is a universal language that transcends all borders, cultures, races, eras, beliefs, backgrounds, and histories. There is so much we can learn about ourselves and from each other through this expressive form of communication. I want to reinforce this incredible bond that ties us together. I want to put it to good use, to give back. I want it to bring families, communities, and countries together. Dance is storytelling, traditional, conversational, expressive, inspirational, artistic, and unique to each person. Let us all take A STEP AROUND THE WORLD together and see what can happen when we Create, Collaborate, Communicate, and Connect through movement.
