The 2016 show is dedicated to powerful women, in dance and beyond. Throughout our performance, Palmetto Oasis will share stories of powerful women in dance. I’d nominate our troupe founder and my mentor/teacher, from whom I learned to dance –Sybil Yocum– who I wrote about in Ameera Unveiled. Based on actual events and the tribe I became part of, Sybil challenged each of us to allow dance to “…encourage women’s self-esteem and wellness, inspiring them to bring forth their creativity and passion for life.” ages women’s self-esteem and wellness, inspiring them to bring forth their creativity and passion for life
