A Postcard from The Dance Enthusiast: #MyDancEmpowers Photo Contest
The Dance Enthusiast's NEW Enthusiastic Event! Series offers audiences an extraordinary entrée to dance, creation, passion, and connection, and our theme this past Winter/into early Spring was DANCE AS EMPOWERMENT.
We asked: How does dance empower you? How do dancers empower themselves and strengthen their souls through movement? How has movement inspired others to empower themselves? WE BELIEVED YOU COULD SHOW US BETTER THAN TELLING US.
Participants posted their photos using the hashtag #MyDancEmpowers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Check out the contest participants' #MyDancEmpowers photos and their responses below.
And don't forget to SAVE-THE-DATE: June 30, 2015. Join us for our final Enthusiastic Event! of the dance season, a DANCE-ART-FUSION Party to welcome summer. Stay tuned for details.
Congratulations to #MyDancEmpowers Contest winner, Boomerang Dance. They will receive one complimentary ticket to our Enthusiast Event! DANCE-ART-FUSION and swag from Brooklyn-based fashion label VOODA!

Cheryl: Here I am as The Bear in Dances Patrelle's "The Nutcracker." I had a great time. I was so scared. And doing the 30-second little piece did really empower me.
Lindsay: I move as if every breath is a dance. I dance because it is natural. I am a dancer in every moment of my day as mother, as wife, as artist, and as part of this beautiful life I was given. I can’t imagine a day without my heart asking for movement and for my dance. www.artistsinunity.com This excerpt is from The Process~ The Practice~ The Artist written by AIU Artistic Director Lindsay Schaefer in Collaboration with Photography from AIU company members Michael Kubel, Andy To, and Kendra Brisco
