What is OSA Dance?
Open Space Activation Dance: I energize and am energized by the space around me. I connect with myself and with the global family in public spaces around the world by dancing. I find an inner music most time, or move to the rhythms around me. I abandon ego and dive into the curious now of the space, whether a subway train, a museum, a bus stop, a playground...whatever it is. This is my life's work. I am also embarking on a self-healing. Everything in my life is shifting rapidly. Or everything has always been shifting and now I am surrendering to the flow. The movement keeps my mind in more present places.

What is OSA Dance 600?
For the next 600 days I will be dancing for at least 60 minutes a day in public space, wherever I am in the world. This blog will record the experiences of my my journey and be the roots of a website forthcoming where the whole world can participate in my journey and of course...DANCE WITH ME!
