Denise says, "After experiencing my first JourneyDance at a yoga studio in New York City in November of 2011, I immediately knew I wanted to bring this modality and all of its gifts to as many people as possible. When I dance, I feel simultaneously grounded yet airy; safely held yet free. Nothing brings me more joy than helping others feel the same, and I look forward to dancing with you soon!
