Lineage Offerings
Celebrate life through dance, and experience the kindred movement spirit between humans and nature.

Patricia W. Ward, MA, IDMA, Artistic Director of Moving Voices Incorporated, typifies the Isadora Duncan philosophy within her own life as well as the Isadora Duncan curriculum she offers. Through the sublimity of Duncan Dance and Expressive Movement, children through adults explore, discover, create, and invent new possibilities for themselves as they respond to movement evolving from the natural world. A harmonious synergistic flourishing of energy-rhythm-movement is the quintessence for their dance.
