#IDANCELIKEU

Dance Parade, NYC

Riverdale Riverfest, NYC

Mermaid Parade, NYC

We dance like you. You and your event guests have a great time being mirrored. You feel celebrated. It's fun on the surface, yet serious underneath. #IDANCELIKEU creates peace and understanding. Our shared dance conversation takes place below language, in our bodies, where fight or flight lives - because 80% of communication is non-verbal. There's an intimacy and unity to taking your moves into our bodies, and showing you to yourself. #IDANCELIKEU crosses over culture, gender, age, ability, language and economics. We simply dance like you to love you.

#IDanceLikeU in Dance Parade - fulfilling my artistic vision of a clown dance group that dances spon

"All those smiles and giggles - wily, silly, fun, funky juice. Lit-up eyes shining are still vibrating in my bones and radiating my heart-on, big time, on the max high-level joy-factor setting!"

- Rachel, New York City

"The intentions of joy we set came out in each of the dancers we engaged with. I saw a lot of happiness that crossed over age-race-language-economic barriers. Bravo & thank you, Barbara Ann."

- Suzanne, New York City

"I was so uplifted by the experience, seeing people, bringing them and those around them higher, creating more love and connection and leaving people with the gift that they made a positive experienceThank you, Barbara, for creating this beautiful idea, and for all of you to co-create." 

- Mari, New York City

"Thank you all so very much for being community stars. Our audience felt celebrated, loved, and energized by our true recognition of each other across the metal fence. I loved our songs and dances, how we took turns leading and supporting each other's intuition with people. Thank you again for showing up and sharing up."
