My heart breaks watching this video💔 Thank you @rosannadianemua_ for sending this to me and stating so beautifully: “dance is an art that involves love and passion. The beauty of what dance can be is being stripped from her, it’s infuriating and heart wrenching to watch.” Dance is about freedom, about love, connection and passion. There is a difference between coaching and having discipline in your craft and then there is THIS! Using a stick to demonstrate is never necessary. That is a tool used to evoke FEAR!! It’s a disgusting act of power and control that we must shed light on. I pray in my heart and soul that this little angel has people or a place where she feels safe and free to dance with joy and to just be a little girl!
