Ballet After Dark: Healing through movement
When a person’s stress system is activated by trauma or crisis it can be life saving. It’s where fight or flight response comes from - and that allows us to get to safety.
But even when safety has been achieved, trauma can take a lasting toll on our physical, mental and emotional health. Research points to how trauma can remain in a body even on a cellular level.
Our guest today helps people who have experienced violence or trauma to release it and get beyond it -- through movement programs offered by Ballet After Dark. We spoke with founder and accomplished dancer/choreographer Tyde-Courtney Edwards.
