What Moves You? @ Natalie Connor

There aren’t enough words to describe the love I feel for our featured artist this week. She is one of my closest friends and has been my day one since I started considering dance as a profession. We have so many memories dancing, choreographing, and teaching together. Her love and skill with children’s dance education has been inspiring and heart-filling to watch over the years. We should all thank the universe that there teachers like her in this world. So all that said, let’s find out what moves Natalie!

What moves you?

Being able to help children discover how amazing and powerful dance can be as an outlet for self-expression. Also the children’s joy and sense of freedom when they dance never ceases to inspire me!
