Our newest addition to Conversation and The Arts, is the new edition of Motivational Tuesdays! Visual Arts encompasses so much more than just dance, music and artistry of painting.
Today, we will look at how The Arts contributes to the development and growth of children that seem to be in dire situations. This all about motivating and uplifting the community through the expression of The Arts.
This week’s message is OVERCOMING.
Often times, when we think of dance, we think “limber and athletic.” However, anyone can fit the title of “Dancer,” as long as you’re driven and you consistently push towards that goal.
With the video shown below, we see just that, a man that beats all stereotypes of the “typical dancer.”
There is a lesson to be learned from the effort displayed by this trooper. Even though, in the physical sense, he may be confined to just his wheelchair, his mental has surpassed the ability of his physical.
He has reached a new height of his ability, all because he believed!
Come join us for a wonderful evening of dance, laughter, and fun.

A new week means new motivation! This week our theme is taking it to the Islands! Feel and Enjoy the drums, bass and vocals on this top hit! The dancers hit every beat and feel every emotion and it shows within their movements. These dancers take moves from the both the Islands and Africa to incorporate soul into their practice.
Everyone is in tune with one another; this is what happens when everyone moves in Harmony and Unison.
Dancing with your feet is one thing, but dancing with heart is another.
Dance comes in many different forms. Explore. Don’t conform.
Once Again, it’s Motivational Tuesday! Let’s get up and get moving!
This story shows how adversity will build strength and courage. Never give up!

Today in improvisation class; we learned about individual and contact improvisation. Contact improvisation, is being able to physically be in contact with one another while dancing. The girls were shy at first, but they quickly warmed up; we really had a break through during our class today! Our girls began to become emotionally entwined in their dance and technique.
We look forward to learning more improv techniques and applying them in the future!
