Dancers around the world are giving the gift of dance, offering inspiring ideas to help us get involved in our communities. Working with underserved populations like prison inmates, low-income women, and the elderly, these movement devotees present opportunity to share movement and artistic expression for the greater good. Simultaneously giving and receiving, dancers create a spiritual currency that grows the more it is spent.
