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

Friday, March 28th, 2014


dance anywhere® is a public celebration of dance everywhere, around the world, simultaneously.

I took part in it.

In my basement.


With a teensy tiny foot dance.

While waiting for the washing machine to stop.

It was a break from report writing, invoicing, income tax prepping, household chore-ing.

Cause I *LOVE* to dance, any and every which way possible!
