Dancer: Ashley Smith
Choreographer: Indya Childs

"I dance for connection. When I dance I am connected to the light inside me. The light that I try to hide because I am afraid that it can never be accepted. It's too bright, it's not bright enough, it's too quiet, it's too loud, it's too crazy, it's too boring. I'm tired of hiding. I dance for liberation."

" Dance is a language that connects us all, I think because it allows the stuff that is deep within us to speak out. I dance for unity. I dance for the light in all of us. I dance for that true freedom. Let's spread peace, love, and dance. "

Dancer/ Creator of Peace, Love, and Dance Project: Indya Childs 

"I dance for healing and unity. I dance for my ancestors. I dance for change and for peace. I dance for civil rights for all humans. I dance for conversation. I dance for us all having a seat at the table. I dance for what's next. I dance for 'where do we go from here.' I dance for being a part of what's next. I dance for keeping this same energy years from now. "
