Michael Franti & Spearhead

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Attending the Michael Franti & Spearhead concert was undoubtedly one of the highlights of my summer so far!

Throughout the concert there were so many times that I held my heart – the lyrics, the love, the peacefulness, joy, respect and audience engagement made it such a precious experience. I COULD NOT STOP DANCING AND I COULD NOT STOP SMILING!

At one point I turned to Lorella (who got to dance on stage with Michael!) and said, “If I had to die right now, that would be ok.”

What a deeply fulfilling and supremely satisfying experience!

Michael sang some songs from his new album Soulrocker. One that caught my attention was called “We are all earthlings“.

These lyrics blew me away:

And I love this life we live
And I love to give this feeling away

When I heard these lyrics, I had a visceral reaction as they sum up the PURE JOY I experience when teaching Nia.

Below is a fun video of our time at the concert.

Dance Anywhere: Bus stop dancing!

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Today is Dance Anywhere Day.  I’ve participated over the years and have such fun dancing in all kinds of places.

I’m no stranger to dancing in public, so I celebrated today by dancing Nia at a bus stop!

I adore catching strangers attention and making them smile!
