art to inspiration | bit of life : the meaning of dance with Art Feeds

Love Naively. Give Generously. Be Foolishly Compassionate.
Dance has provided me with the chance to understand my culture and heritage. As an art form it is a language that translates not only into beauty, but also communication. I share stories through hand gestures and exude emotions like aggression, passion, love and adoration. In times of stress, it has brought hope and peace. Bharatha Natyam, the Indian classical dance of southern India, has been my escape to utopia for many years. For me, dance feeds artistry. Art feeds the heart.
Art Feeds exists to feed creative development and facilitate emotional expression in children. An organization that I am truly passionate for, as it enables children to express themselves and share their beliefs and opinions creatively. Art is so powerful, one of the only concepts in our society that blends the human creative skill with imagination producing work that are powerful beyond measure.

Art, through dance, has brought me serenity in troubled times. In moments of angst and tears, I was able to dance to release emotionally. Dance has allowed me to share, understand and also grow.

    Beautiful! I remember you teaching some of us a few hand gestures and the positioning of your arms/hands/self to represent different things… Sadly… I think I only really remember cow… and I can promise you I'm doing it wrong, but the memory has always stuck with me!

  • szoutenbier

    Not only that…. I'm having flashbacks at how long ago that was… but how vivid the memory tied to it is! And how beautiful the colors in your outfit were 🙂

  • Thank you so much, Alina! I am so thrilled you enjoyed it. It is something I hope to carry on to my (very far in the future) children 🙂 x

  • Aw these comments made my day. I definitely miss multi-cultural fair and all the stress, fun, craziness it encompassed. And dancing in Mrs. Funk's world history class was always such a treat. <3

  • These photos are stunning. I'm always happy to hear of the arts enriching lives in tangible ways. I'm headed over to check on the Art Feeds website right now.

  • Awesome! <3
