Music & Other Gems Oct 15-18, 2018 – Driver’s Seat


Taking the wheel in our movement and in our days can sometimes be scary and can also be empowering and freeing. We danced in the driver’s seat to the Inspired routine this week – with some songs about driving both old and new. You can find all the playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are some things I know you want to know about:
