T E S T I M O N I A L S

"Jean-Pierre and Oshalla's method of demonstrating the energetic and visceral connection between dance partners is so wonderfully foundational. We understand now how to connect empathically. The definition of "leading" is forever changed in me. Dance is about inviting, awareness, protecting the connection. Beautiful!" ---Pia
