Testimonial of the First Graduate from the Program:

"Studying with Donna deeply changed my understanding of my body and my teaching. The one-a-one structure of this teaching/mentorship program allowed for personal growth in a very unique way: I felt heard, supported, encouraged, and that I could ask what I really needed to support my learning, as a dance artist and a dance educator. My movement and my teachings are never going to be the same and I am excited to see what comes next!"
