Next 3 classes, Sebastopol, CA

My greatest lessons from expandance have ultimately been about fearlessness. The meditative technique goes beyond other types of sitting or moving meditation I've practiced. That is, it accesses deep awareness, calm acceptance, and loving-kindness...and also manages to make me feel like a better communicator and more confident in general. This technique has allowed me to give myself permission to take risks...at work, at play, and in my relationships with other people.

Rivertown Revival - thank you

Thank you, everyone who came out to see us perform on Saturday at the Rivertown Revival in Petaluma. It was a super fun day, and quite the honor to perform in front of such huge crowds! Thank you to everyone involved in the Butterfly Ship, from the musicians to the dancers, and to Rivertown Revival for looking after everyone so well. We had a great day.

We even made it into the Press Democrat!

Performance this Saturday at Rivertown Revival

This Saturday: The Rivertown Revival festival in Petaluma!

Saturday July 16th 2016
McNear Peninsula, Petaluma, California
Festival runs 11am - 8pm

The Butterfly Ship, which comprises an incredibly talented group of Petaluma-based musicians, asked me to choreograph a couple of pieces for them for this festival, and we've been working on them for the last month. It's a nice festival, family friendly; there's music, food, an adult-sized see saw, art boats ... and us! It supports the work of the non-profit Friends of Petaluma River.
We're performing at the Aerial Rig at these times:

Our 20 minute sets will include dance, live original music, aerial silks, and spoken word poetry. 

How to get there:
The Rivertown Revival will take place on the McNear Peninsula, through the entrance of Steamer Landing Park, at D Street & Copeland St near the Petaluma River in beautiful Petaluma.

See you there!
