Feminine Fusion

S08 Ep15: Invitation to the Dance


“Music and dance are so deeply embedded in the human experience that we almost take them for granted.”  – Dan Falk, This Is Your Brain On Music


It’s an hour filled with dance music, and the inspiration has come from heritage, paintings, and reflection.  Let’s all join in the dance…
