The Dancing Flowers for Peace are more than a performance dance troupe. Each member picks their flower persona based on what they want to explore about bringing peace in the world and into themselves. Honing our performance and dance chops sets the stage to literally and figuratively move and transform the elements that block peace.
I chose the dandelion and try to represent the disenfranchised flowers not wanted in most gardens. I am a survivor, and I’m street smart. Many parts of my flower are eatable and have medicinal purposes.
Any woman forty and over may join. Dance experience is not necessary, but an open heart and commitment are. We meet the first and third Saturdays of the month on Emory’s campus. Lori Teague is one of our leader & creative director and the Director of Dance at Emory University; we practice on a real dance floor. If you want to meet us and join our warmup session before rehearsal, please let me know.
