A dance studio in Georgia O'Keeffe Country with a fine sprung floor perfect for dance lessons, partner dancing, yoga classes, and other movement modalities

“There are short-cuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.” Martha Graham described dance as the “truthful expression of the psyche’s deepest feelings, revealing through the body’s movement the innermost impulses of the human soul.” Significantly, dancing improves the quality of life by increasing balance, enhances cardiovascular and muscular endurance, agility and coordination, and stimulates memory. Loss of equilibrium, agility, falls, and bone fracture are the leading cause of accidental death in the elderly. While certain declines with age are unavoidable, balance can be preserved and often restored through various exercise. Studies with patients with Parkinson’s disease show improvement in symptoms, such as mobility, balance, gait and quality of life, and Tango dancing has demonstrated one of the highest levels of evidence of efficacy. Moreover, stimulation of memory and the teaching social skills in general is beneficial for patients with Alzheimer’s or relate disorders. Our programs are focused to the population at large, tailored to each group, from children to seniors, whether healthy or restricted in their movements.

Dancing with the Fullness of Myself

"For all of us who pursue dance, I hope we can each come to know the difference between dancing with the fullness of ourselves versus executing steps in the hopes someone will decide we’re good enough. The difference is invaluable."
