There are group of dancers in the USA who have been meeting regularly for over 40 years called “Dance New England” (DNE).
Land has been purchased by the ‘Friends of DNE’, and DNE get to use the facilities as and when required. DNE is a not for profit organisation, who’s aim is to provide services that uplift the communities for which they serve-providing a positive example for the world at large.
Carolina and I dived into these extraordinary people’s lives for 11 days.
It was a rare opportunity and privilege to have been able to experience the camp and assist Carolina. I personally have never experienced such a diverse community, in terms of age, race and abilities. I met many people who had special needs who were treated completely “normally” being fully accepted and supported by all of the community in ways that I found very moving. A generous listening was provided for all attending the camp. I felt the reverence they felt for not just each other but the Land too and it was heart opening and inspiring.
