The Path

Go Deeper with Movement Medicine

The Movement Medicine Path is a dancing path. A path where movement is your medicine, where you are both respected as the one you are and challenged to become all you can be. A path where community and individuality are mutually enhancing and you learn to alchemise the past, be present, and play your role in creating the future. Do you hear the drums calling you?
