The Gift of Story

Working with the elders in The Dancing Heart sites has been a gift to me. Every time I connect with an elder through movement, I learn a little bit about their life story. Whether it’s Sandra’s shimmy, Tim’s fighter fists, Sarah’s steady step-together or Bob’s upward spiraling hand – each movement is loaded with expression and communication. My job is to receive their story as a gift. Thank you, elders!
