Dance-Sweat-Movement transforms parking lots into collective healing space as it draws you out of your daily routine to experience a social togetherness with neighbors you never knew. Imagine you’re walking by and feel yourself pulled by the sounds. You see people of all different ages, cultures and bodies dancing. They’re sweating, laughing, and doing that old dance you used to love. Wow, you forgot you used to dance. As you join the back line, you feel your body relax as Smallie Michelle a Dorchester-based dance artist, welcomes you into Dance-Sweat-Movement.
