I am so happy I had the good fortune of dancing into Phoenix this year. Parvati and Shivadam were my most gracious hosts and I was happy to share some sweet time with them.
Amina, Parvati’s mom, had invited me to lead a Tara Dance class for a group she has been developing at the ABIL Center (Arizona Bridge to Indiependent Living). She is an Advocate for the “differently abled” and often heads off to the state capitol.
