There’s a sweet anticipation in the room. Some people are chatting; others are stretching. Before the music starts, a focus is presented. It might be feeling the connection of our bare feet on the floor, the movement of our spines, or the blending of martial arts precision with the flow of dance movements. As the music begins, we take two steps into a new spot, it’s a place where we leave behind any distractions and allow ourselves to center.
