Dance devised in early 2016 ...

Dance devised in early 2016, for Kathleen, Glenna, Joan, & Ruth. Butterfly was named by two of these women.

When I was devising it my thoughts were on four women who had gone through changes in their lives and seemed to have come out the other side stronger and ready to enjoy their new path in life. I think the name they chose was very thoughtful and I love the beauty and grace of the Butterfly.
