About A*Diva

**Mission Statement** (extract courtesy of “Daughters of Rhea”)
These are some of our goals:
To encourage women’s unique expression of their wild, most ecstatic selves through the ancient art of oriental dance.

To celebrate life, creativity & community.
To couple technique and precision with enthusiasm and passion.

To be industrious in practice so we can be Dionysian in performance.

To be in our bodies with pride, awareness and open hearts.

To recognize and respect the power of feet, breath, knees, hips, bones, sinews, right & left brain, yin & yang, sky & earth, flesh & divinity.

To be, in just measure: relevant and irreverent, playful and profound.

To be thoughtful and wise in our self-presentation, dance choices & performance contexts.

To celebrate somatic diversity and salute individual strengths.

To flaunt convention & fearlessly innovate. To subvert stereotypes and transcend pre/mis-conceptions.

To be open to transformation and revelation at every stage of our dance career.

To be spontaneous, authentic, energetic, encouraging, limber, sexy, smart, precise, serious, trancelike, sinewy, professional, ecstatic, trembling, fully present, intelligently daring, proud, creative, brave.

TO LEAVE A TRACE, CAUSE A RIPPLE…TO RIP OPEN NEW SPACES TO BEAUTY.
