Whitney Leavitt: Dancer
What Moves You?
“An internal force that drives my creativity and desire to simply, move. There’s a stirring feeling that continues to develop when invited to get up and do what brings me eternal bliss and great joy. This being brought to me, knowing how much happiness it brings me, how could anyone pass up that feeling? And that is why I move.”
