Perfect ending to the perfect week. Day 7 in Panama!!

We started off the day bright and early again with another flying low class. We did some energy work and explored the idea of gathering and sending your energy again. He also talked a lot about being aware of your body, especially your feet and your focus. One of the great things that we did... Continue Reading →


Exchange. Day 6 in Panama!!

(Slightly late post.)Today was all about the exchange. With everything that happened today, I now really understand the importance of both taking and giving.

Wonderful 2nd day!

Today we began the day with a Jazz class taught by one of our SMU students at the Univeristy in Panama. It was a great experience to be able to dance with other University dance majors, and just reaffirmed that dance is universal in our world. Though our cultures are so different, and the language...
