“I felt very inspired by you and your work. It was an opening and freeing experience to hear your story to see how I could create my own way of living/dancing. I became much more aware of how dance can make a difference ( a huge difference) in our world. It changes our experience of life, of living.  It can be like being born again. It can be like dying too. Yes! I would like to do this again.” – Alicia Pugh, San Francisco Lines Ballet student

“I feel that these last two days have reminded me how healing [movement+music=dance] is and how it is a naturally fun thing—which, if used properly can help the world. I always feel like my interests in helping the world and my interests in dance are conflicted, but your project and philosophy about bringing the two together have opened up my mind and inspired me that you can always turn love into healing for others in someway. I want to delve into the ancient arts and philosophies as you have because I find it very interesting. Thank you for revitalizing dance for me!” — Sierra Stockton, San Francisco Lines Ballet student
