One sweet woman came up to us afterward with tears coming down her face and thanked us for performing for them, telling us: "I have never been so moved by dance before." She asked what the music was from and I gave her the composer and title. This is exactly what I wanted-- to bring comfort and healing to those suffering through loss. It was one of the most rewarding things I have used my gift of dance for. It has turned my own personal grief into a vessel that others might, because they have seen the piece, heal and move on just a bit faster than they would have. These opportunities to perform have turned my sorrow into joy-- I am so grateful to be able to use such a difficult experience to reach out to others and help even just a little bit.
