Dance Educator Inspiration
As a dance educator, I have found great value in this series. Looking forward to many more episodes!
What a wonderful thing the Joyce does by giving us this podcast!
I’ve been truly impacted by these conversations. There is nothing else like this.
So glad I found these podcasts. Dancers point of view and an inside look at choreographer’s process.
