As always, the intent would be to bring people out of spectator mode, connect as a group, and strengthen our sense of community with a shared positive vibe. Ultimately, I'd like people to consider that at a fundamental level we are all dancers regardless of our level of experience or whether or not we have been developing dance as an art/craft.
