Founder/Artistic Director

Deepali Lindblom

In India, I didn't dance. In Sweden, I realized that I would like to dance. In Canada, I became a successful professional dancer. But it was in the US, I realized the power of dance. When I held my newborn and wondered what kind of world he would grow up in.

Art Promotes Empathy

Dance, besides promoting health and wellbeing, is a delightful medium to come together. It is specifically effective when people come diverse and cultural backgrounds.

Given time, it provides the right stimulus and setting for a better understanding of self and others in the group. It fosters confidence and encourages dialogue. An opportunity to learn, share information, and show, that in spite of our differences, we are inextricably connected.
