Does Your Mother Know?

I am still smiling thinking about all the delightful stories shared at our Dancing Heart™ sites last week. Our storytelling prompt was: Tell us about something you did or wanted to do that your mother didn’t allow.

I watched as participants began to wiggle in their chairs, smile and blush. At Deer Crest Assisted Living, Bill shared that he skipped school and went down to the river during the winter and dangerously rode the floating ice. We heard wonderful stories of bikini bathing suits that were banned (but worn in secret), talking late at night to new boyfriends, sneaking the car out to go dancing and not finishing everything on the dinner plate.

We honored our mothers that week and we also celebrated our spunky, wild youthful selves!



The mission of Kairos Dance Theatre is to transform and revitalize individuals and communities. We work with older adults in intergenerational settings to liberate the healing power of interactive dance and story. We achieve our mission by engaging the skills of professional teaching artists.
