My Irish friends might tell me I'm dead wrong, but I sure love the fiddle-playing, haunting melodies that I associate with Ireland, so BAM, here it is, a playlist that practically created itself.

Then one of my favorite Nia choreographers, Adelle Brownlee Brewer, was to lead a Nia FreeDance training at the Joy of Movement in Pittsboro NC (where I now teach) and I'd have done anything to spend a weekend dancing with her. And I told myself, maybe it would help me feel more comfortable teaching freedance and I'd learn some tips. I found so much more...
