"For me, the reason why I danced was because I enjoyed worship dancing for God. I was a part of my church dance ministry for 17 years. I loved learning movement vocabulary with which I could story tell and express my joy, gratitude, love and worship through movement. The pleasure it brought me was why I danced.โฃ
Another reason why I dance is because it creates connections and builds community. Danceworks community dances allow me to dance with people of all ages, backgrounds and โฃexperiences. It is a wonderful feeling to dance among and learn from those I admire. Lastly, the new virtual classesโ€™ traverse distance and allow me to take classes with my sister and sister-in-law who both live in different states. I get a huge emotional kick out of dancing with my family. And that is why I dance." -Jolie Collins, Artist & DW's Office Administratorโฃ
