The Dance
The Dance is a way
of working with children...
Creativity...the silent rhythm...
The child leads...
The adult follows...
The adult listening...attentive...silent....

From the dance...
Something new emerges from within the child...
The child becomes more than he was…
The child becomes more than he knew he
could be…
This is the Dance...
This is Dances With Wood...
the Leader of the Dance
Who has
the big brush?
The leader of the Dance...
Of course...

After 6 months of treatment...
at last...
the last day of treatment arrives...
so does the Coast Guard...
with gifts...
to wish bon voyage....

The plaque was made and donated by the Connecticut Department of Corrections...

The final phase...
Emergence...
The adult becomes invisible...
The time to celebrate arrives...
This moment belongs to...
And is the birthright of...
the child...
Powerful, magic filled moments...
That will empower and inform...
The full, healthy and
creative life that awaits...
