Buy some joy for a stranger or friend!


We're all figuring this out as we go! My idea here is to provide an opportunity to connect people in two types of situations: those who are struggling during the shut-down and would like to take a joyful class but don't have disposable income, and those who have the means and would like to support a stranger, friend or family member by buying them a class with me. I know folks in all these situations, and for those who would like to connect in this way, I feel happy at the idea of connecting you.

With all my work being with people (teaching, coaching, facilitating, performing and hosting), my professional landscape has changed dramatically with the stay-at-home order, like it has for most. I am proud and grateful to live in a city where people are complying with protocols to flatten the curve of the spread. And though it's strange and sad not to gather, I am fully in support of these orders. As we are all making sacrifices to protect public health, I want to find a way to both contribute the best of what I can, and continue to support myself. That's where this idea comes from.
