[Words by Hannah]
"To suggest where a creation or community might have etched its beginning could be an endless search.
It might have ignited within the spark of a fleeting thought or it might have laid as a song in a stone since time began, caught for what feels like eternity - waiting, waiting, until someone, somewhere awakened to it.
As we stand at the closing of the year, it is such a potent time for me to reflect on what has taken place and taken form within our amazing dance community.
It is this I knew I needed to share..."
ARTIST OF THE MONTH
A huge source of musical inspiration for the dance has come from the exquisite artistry of Rising Appalachia.
Somehow they sing language of depth, spirit and community and give a lyrical mirror to all that we stand for.
To choose one single track or album is almost impossible so go ahead and just take a wonderful journey into their musical tales.
Stories are what feed the human soul.
They can help us make sense of life.
Many people may be familiar with the book Women Who Run with the Wolves and how groundbreaking it was. Following that, Clarissa Pinkola Estes gave audiences extended versions of her work in the spoken word. These recordings eventually became available in audiobooks as 'Theatre of the Imagination' and 'The Joyous Body'.
Her lilting, soft spoken word takes you into worlds you knew of once before, grabs the imagination and says “Walk with me, now!”.

We are a community driven organisation celebrating movement, music and the medicine of life.
Our purpose for being and the fuel behind our creation is to share the wonder that can be tapped into when we awaken the medicine inside the self.
This medicine is based on free movement and exploration through dance; not working to an audience or a set routine but discovering the dance that is waiting inside of you at that very moment.
Grab a cuppa, we've got some juicy words for you to read!
Our community of dancers have been sharing reflections of their Elements Of Dance experiences, and what the dance means to them.

"I have so much to say, it was magical, powerful, a joy to move this body to such carefully chosen tracks, The witnessing is as powerful as the dancing, to dance outside safely in a held community is healing and affirming . So many insights during the dance and dialogue . The building of trust and community flows outwards from the dance space."
