A Note From Palo Alto and San Mateo, CA

By: Deborah Walker, Event Producer  |  March 7, 2009

The dictionary had it right when it described joy... the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation. The Spirit of Nia Tour in the SF Bay Area was pure joy. Thank you Debbie and Carlos for visioning and creating the Spirit of Nia Tour to celebrate Nia’s 25th birthday and to Nia HQ for providing the support necessary to make it happen. It was a magical event from start to finish. And in the San Francisco Bay Area, many Nia teachers had the opportunity to meet Debbie and Carlos for the very first time! Following the event, the Nia teachers in the room were invited to step forward... I was amazed to see 25-30 people step forward! The feeling of community was palpable. I am looking forward to the next 25 years...dancing through life with Nia!
