This mixed media drawing was completed this week. It is the culmination of a nine month process of imagining dance through an intuitive technique that readily allows anyone to dance with grace and confidence at any time, The Niwa Dance Alchemy.

Niwa Dance Alchemy is a space of balance and harmony for body, mind, spirit and soul....Through Niwa, form, rhythm, feelings, energy and ether--synchronize. Niwa is an alchemy that inspires one's creativity towards a new possibility for dance, for life, for living, and for breathing in intimate harmony with the world within and the universe that surrounds us. Niwa is a circular dance that journeys one back to our origin--Spirit. Niwa is a technique that utilizes an ancient form to evoke an intimate connection with the dance and dancer within ourselves.
