Some of you may know Jolie as one of the welcoming faces at the Danceworks front desk or maybe as an art instructor for our youth camps and workshops. For this #WhyDanceWednesday, Jolie shares with us the reasons she began dancing, and how the art has allowed her to build connections and community. Keep on reading for more! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡โฃ
"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
