    Leslie has very well broken down her dance course into digestible information along with practical exercises that are fun and reflective. It's about dancing with depth and accessing one's multidimensional aspects (Physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) with curiosity and non-judgment. It is a wonderful practice useful for those who want to explore personal and spiritual growth through movement. I really enjoyed both the live and online workshop versions!
