Don't You Feel It Too? & Grace Minnesota 2016
Fundraiser for Springboard for the Arts

Grace raising money for Springboard for the Arts

Support brave dancing in the streets--a daring and imaginative exploration of art, healing, and activism.

Don't You Feel It Too? is a new contemplative and behavioral form. It is the practice of freeing your spirit through dancing your inner life in public places.

Everyone can do this simple and beautiful practice. Participants feel stress relief, compassion, confidence, joy, and liberation. Many have called it the most liberating activity they have experienced.

Grab headphones, pick music you love, go to the streets, and dare to dance!

Since its creation in 2008, Don't You Feel It Too? has developed from more than 300 public sessions serving thousands including students from elementary through graduate school, professional dancers, youth experiencing homelessness, spiritual retreatants, racial equity activists, and the general public.

“No activity up to this moment in life has been more refreshing, more uplifting, or more liberating than what I experienced today.”  

– Hannah, University of MN student

Your support will help us to continue to develop this unique practice of public dancing for personal liberation and social healing.
