Leben ist Bewegung by Gabrielle Roth

“When I was younger I struggled to express myself, I was very shy – many times I would hold back. Afraid to say the wrong thing. Afraid to not fit in. I did not have an outlet for my emotions. When I started to dance and find my own movement it was a blessing.

I found my channel of expression – translating my emotions into my body and releasing them through it. I built confidence within my body and trusted myself to develop my own voice.
