“I believe dance is both body empowerment as well as a form of freedom. When you dance, dance uninhibitedly. Lose yourself in the music and rhythms, freeing yourself from all the self-inflicted boundaries and consciousness we stress upon ourselves living in today’s society. When you dance, dance like no one is watching. Allowing yourself true freedom to move, will not only have you feel uplifted, but you will also feel your body strengthening and becoming more flexible.”
Heather Fay
