Thank you all for your kindness, texts, calls and coming by checking on me. I’m not ok but will be. @sunksauce was so instrumental in helping me with my business. He was very scared to social dance but jumped in to help me every time. He had no experience and was terrified to learn salsa, merengue and bachata! But he excelled and wouldn’t let me rest until he was a pro. We’d go out salsa and bachata dancing, and he was like “Omg this is so fun, I love this!” He met so many of my dance ladies and trainers they told me he was so amazing to dance with because he made you feel secure and had a strong and gentle lead. Even on tough days where I felt like giving up on training or going to continuing education classes he was always there to say, “Nope not letting you give up or be lazy Nic!” I was going through some major challenges and was doubting myself. But he never let me quit. So today I’m going to get back up and resume classes and going out dancing this weekend. Can’t promise you if it will be any good, I appreciate your all’s love and support and thank you for your prayers.

We lost our @sunksauce and two other family members in a car accident yesterday. And another is in the hospital. I can’t breathe or think or feel anything. @sunksauce was the co teacher in my classes. He always brought fun and silliness to my class. We together helped create the dance business to reach out to Native youth, adults and elders. I’m lost and utterly beyond help. I mourn this loss immensely. I can’t dance anymore.

Emotions in motion

Dancing is a great way to get in touch with your kinetic energy and release a healthy expression into the world! Our goal is to introduce the positive awareness and increase the level of joy one experiences when learning something new. Our connection and response to music is dance! Learning the feel and rhythms as a human race keep us all connected and empowered to dance some more! Come out and learn not just to dance but to learn the simple steps to connect on many levels with yourself through dance! -Nichole
