Twilight Dance

“My dance speaks my heart.”

In Kerka’s story, the Kalis Dance is a powerful form of self-expression, made up of symbolic movements that hold special meaning for the dancer.

Your dance may change from moment to moment or day to day. One thing you can always count on–it will be as unique as you are!
