- Dance is a radical and vital art.
- The movements we make matter.
- is at the essence of all life;
- connects us to the mystery, wonder, beauty, and joy in our complex existence;
- provides humor, healing, and play that is vital to our well-being;
- gives us a connection to ourselves, and a connectedness toward others;
- is a returning of the mind to the body and a respite from a tethered life to our ever increasing disembodied technological world.
- The power of transformation through movement can be experienced both in the practice, performance, and viewing of dance.
- We are all dancers.
- Karin Stevens Dance is more than a dance company; this is a way of life.
