“We believe when you dance on the land, you're letting Mother Earth know you still care about her…this is about restoring the energy, dancing the spirit back into country, dancing the spirit back into ourselves” - Uncle Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner AM, Senior Elder of the Ngarrindjerri people
Brittany is a somatic ecologist and permaculturist who trained as a dancer since the age of 5. Yet on her path towards a professional dance career, she faced an overwhelming trauma that propelled her to leave Australia and live in North America.
