Dance is the oldest language, more ancient than the spoken language, much wisdom and truth lies dormant within us, which can be awakened through the movement of dance as it awakens the memory that the body preserves, its in our DNA, our soul yearns to reconnect, traditional dances take us on that journey, a journey back to roots, where we discover new cultures, experience new movement, new emotions and new languages
