Letter from the Editor Dear Salysians, I love dance. Although sometimes I seem to have two left feet, there is nothing more empowering than the freedom of movement. The April issues are a celebration of movement in various forms and styles. It was such a pleasure putting this issue together. Enjoy the April issue! As always, I hope you enjoy your escape! Hugs and Love, Sonya Alyse Lawyer SALYSĂ‰, Founder and Editor in Chief
