Lucy bought Alchemy of Movement (AOM) in 2010, a dance studio in Boulder, CO, after receiving her master’s degree in Psychology from Naropa University. Her Psychological background led to the birth of Dance To Be Free (DTBF) due to the therapeutic and cathartic quality of her teaching style.
In March of 2015, Lucy founded DTBF along with her Board of Directors. Dance To Be Free’s mission is to share the healing power of dance with women in prison nationwide. The cathartic choreography and passionate music leads to physical, spiritual and emotional healing without the burden of talking!
Their program launched at the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility in July of 2015 and has grown into weekly classes and a teacher-training program. Since their inception, DTBF has expanded to 8 states (NE, WA, HI, MS, FL, VA, TN and AR) with our Teacher-Training program, certifying over 400 prisoners as dance teachers.
