Natalie Makardish, M.A., RYT I encourage my students to invite compassion within the parts of themselves that usually welcome self-criticism, self-sabotage and self-hate. One of my dancers approached me regarding the ACE Awards this year and I replied with, 'gather the dancers.' It was very moving for me to be on the other side of encouragement, especially from former and current students. Some I have worked with for many years and others the first time. Every individual in this piece volunteered their time to share their voice through my movement vocabulary. They have an understanding that sharing our stories, uncomfortable or not, is a very powerful invitation to relate and connect with others. This piece offers a space for the dancers to move through discomfort and challenges within their individual lives. As I empower them to love themselves in their darkest spaces, they empower me to do the same. We present: 'Revolt'

The emotion, technique and art jumped out of the screen and into my heart! Tells a story without words and leaves the details to the viewer to decide. Artistry and humanity expressed through movement, absolutely beautiful.

No word from our dictionary can describe my intention– or feelings– behind movement, but my movement can describe those feelings that are isolated from any word. This rhetorical chiasmus is totally cliché, but it is the unvarnished truth. Love, A Fidgety Soul PS. Natalie is my Poobah

This is a powerful piece of Art! Different and yet Familiar in the sense of Motion. By all my Favorite!
