Thank you,


Here at Art Studio World in Asheville we are have been hard at work creating a studio space and offices for Holistic Dance and other SoulMovement Project development and Art Studio programing. This studio space is a platform spearheaded by Art Studio and SoulMovement Project to bring teaching artists together for program and curriculum development/ expansion of the "Holistic Dance" programs incorporating a music aspect to the program . This is a fun collaboration that will progress from the " I am " platform of our curriculum to the " We are" curriculum which builds on teamwork, communication, collaboration, connection. Thank you and stay tuned for more updates from SoulMovement Project and Art Studio World.

Thank you for you support,

Holistic Dance at the YWCA in Asheville! We participated in the YWCA Asheville 2014 summer camp twice a week, for 8 weeks, serving 60 youth ages 8 to 13. With 4 volunteers including myself, we were able to dance, sing, learn flow arts, meditate and talk about our gratitudes and breakthroughs in our own lives. Our focus with this group was listening skills and speaklng from a place of empowerment and innner truth! Our yoga and meditation section of the program, had the best response as I feel these youth are in need of focused quiet in their lives. A challange at first by the end of the 8 weeks, the kids were eager to raise their hands and talk about their experiance in meditation. Poetic and personal experiences left our group of teachers in awe of  the wisdom in the heart and minds of the youth. One particular comment was " listening from the heart, rather then the ears", also many of the youth shared active experiences of coming to their breathing techniques learned in the program to handle stress in their lives at school and at home.

Thank you for all your support,


Your Funds helped Art Studio bring Holistic Dance to Miami! We spent a day with youth ages 9 to 12, in the Little Haiti community exploring dance, movement, self awareness skills, mindful breathing and indepth conversation with the children about their experiance. This video talks about the project thus far in its creation and is in collaboration with Art Studio's film program.  This video was filmed and edited by Art Studio's youth with the assistence of mentorship. All interview questions where written by Art Studio youth.  After our workshop we all enjoyed lunch on site at Art Studio Miami. After lunch we chartered a bus to Miami's art district, and with volunteers spent the later part of the day roaming art studio's and galleries, observing and talking with local artists about the creative process.

 We hope you enjoy!
