"We are always in motion; our blood flows, our lungs expand and contract and our hearts beat like a drum keeping time. All around us the world is in motion; leaves flutter, waves roll and crash, cars zip by. Inside of this wonderful life-song our minds and spirits swirl, connecting us to our inner and outer worlds and to each other. Dance is inside and all around us; all we have to do is open to it." - from Canada's International Dance Day Message by Susanne Chui (our 2002 graduate!)
Happy International Dance Day! We're gonna celebrate by doing some dancing tonight. ... See MoreSee Less
