Next Steps for Women

“I believe natural movement has many values for you. You can be yourself and discover your own style, rather than being like someone else or taking on some imposed style. You can learn about yourself. You can help heal yourself. You can increase your range of movement, and your range of feelings and experiences, and thus grow and develop on a personal level. You can use movement as a medium for creative expression. Natural movement is a life force.”
