"When I first began dance lessons 56 years ago I was really captivated by the power of movement and music to lighten my spirit. Now, with the DVD, that original deep resonance of bliss has been re-enlivened! Thank You! "

Pat Riker, teacher of ballet, modern, jazz, tap, improvisation

"The Women of Monday Morning,' is a wonderful vision into community and connection established through the simplest of human skills, movement and breath. I enjoyed this new DVD because it captured the deep connection and friendship which has grown from the simple desire to move. The DVD has deep talk and beautiful movement. I watched it twice in my first sitting as I had the biggest smile on my face. Thanks for capturing this Hill Country community and sharing the vision of healing and growth available to all of us with simple movement and loving connection."

Tony Godwin, Kirtan leader and computer guy

"I love the well-crafted and unpretentious approach of this documentary of creative movement and the process of a group-body secure in their long experience with each other. It was recorded in a beautiful studio created by Lauren Robins in a rural pine forested setting which significantly contributes to the aesthetic sensibility of the group."

C. Sue Pfaffl is retired from teaching but definitely still dancing in Tucson studios, desert and her home, with both children and adults

"This is a wonderful example of the power of movement and the healing potential of art. The longevity of this groups commitment to dancing and each other is inspirational. The range of ages of the women dancing is so lovely and important. I feel honored to have danced with Lauren and others in the group."

Darla Johnson, independent choreographer, adjunct dance professor at Austin Community College, assistant director for the Arts & Humanities, Publicity/Marketing at ACC.

"I found the video to be helpful and inspiring for my dance students wishing to go into the Healing Arts/ Dance Therapy."
