Last abunDANCE of the Year

Lastnight, I felt conflicted with showing all the love and joy that was created in class because of the disappointment the ‪#‎MikeBrown‬ verdict created. I was at a lost of words. Then I realized at that moment I was making it about me, I was being a taker. The possibility and ‪#‎choice‬ of ‪#‎joy‬ is necessary more than ever. So I get to still be ‪#‎disappointed‬‪#‎angry‬ and still use my ‪#‎love‬ and ‪#‎gift‬as a temporary relief. ‪#‎Self‬-love is a necessary form of activist, too. Thank you everyone who made it lastnight. Thank you for dancing for those who no longer can. I will see you Monday, January 5th at 8:30pm. New Year, New Possibilities. ‪#‎blackslivesmatter‬ ‪#‎abunDANCE‬‪#‎LOVEis‬ ‪#‎ferguson‬

What is abunDANCE?

abunDANCE is a reminder that there is plenty of love to go around. We do not need to fight, manipulate or beat down in order to get what is rightful ours. abunDANCE is an opportunity to use love and movement as vehicle to self-expression, healing and freedom. Through, workshops, dance classes, engaging and encouraging conversations and much more, abunDANCE will shift how we see and love ourselves and therefore shift the planet.

a glimpse of abunDANCE

While editing this video, I couldn't ignore all this joy and decided give you a glimpse of what abunDANCE is like.

I am fortune to do what I love.
I am grateful to be able to create a space for love, joy, healing and outrageousness.
I am the happiest when I am teaching.
See for yourself.
See you Monday!
