"Thank you for generosity of welcoming me and opening up and being vulnerable. It's so good to be here and have a place to come. Movement so feeds me, and nourishes me- and that we're dancing the heart! This is so nourishing, this is how I process. Getting the energy, on the ground through the body- it's my life's work! I can't wait for next week!" F.P.

"It was my first time here and I sat down and immediately felt so grateful, I love that things like this exist and that it's such a special circle and we can all open up and support each other." K.D.

"This is one of the spaces I can let my sexy self out without worrying about am I being seen, or threatening or threatened etc...I can just embody her." A.M.

"Thank you for holding such sacred space- I feel like myself again! Thank you dancers for being the community that I can fully open myself and allow all of me to be here!" S.P.F.

"Dancing with you I have found so much aliveness and fullness through being with all parts of myself." D.H.

"I feel like I am finally falling in love with myself! Your class and this circle of welcoming dancers has been the key." P.G.

"I'm so grateful I came, this is exactly what I needed! I'm enjoying the intelligence and wisdom of my body and there's so much permission to do that here. I'm coming back every week! I'm so grateful to be here with all of you." A.P.
