Flow into the summer with ease and let yourself play! Come and be rejuvenated over a cup of tea with women who care. Rekindle your creative spirit!
In a safe relaxing environment we will use music, discussion and a creative visual exercise to help restore the creative spirit within each of us. We all need the time and space to relax into our true authentic self. Think of it as a massage to the spirit!

Liz Derecktor (sister to RI's dancing spirit, Barbara) creates gorgeous one of a kind wearable art pieces of hand painted silk chiffon. Barbara relates, "She made a skirt for me a few years ago which is my best teaching outfit. Why? - because it is so flatttering/comfortable,unique and dramatic - plus I can wear it after class around town - to the grocery store or out to dinner and feel perfect - what could be better?. It is black with white dancers painted along the bottom."
Liz also paints veils to match skirts as well as many other delightful and comfortable designs. She is a wonderful artist and can use your colors and ideas - animals, goddesses etc to be incorporated in your designs.
