My sister Joelle and I are headed off to Poland for World Youth Day, where will be dancing in the Youth Festival in Kraków! First off, let me say that I can’t believe it’s been three years since my last World Youth Day, a life-changing experience that I’ll never forget. It was a dream come true that turned into a calling, and while I’m not sure what this new adventure will bring, I am pretty excited to be sharing this moment with my sister.
As I was preparing for our pilgrimage, packing and rehearsing, I stumbled upon this quote and picture on Facebook. This here- this! This is why we dance! This quote sums up perfectly our belief in the power of dance. Dance as a way to connect to our communities, as a way to pray with our communities. Dance to bridge the past and our future by being present in the moment. Dance for healing and for justice. And dance as a way to give thanks to our Creator. Dance to nurture the mind, body, and spirit.
