Alexandra Clancy - Sometimes small steps create not so small noises

Cazzwell Van Dyke + Dezi Desire - Between drag and burlesque artists Cazzwell van Dyke and Dezi Desire, Dezi might be the small one. But they both have big presence on stage.

Desirée Dunbar - “Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart”. - A.A. Milne

Jacq Smith - Jacq’s love of movement is no small matter

Jessica Keeling- Jessica Keeling makes no small moves. Whether she's gracing television screens or travelling the world to expand her knowledge and practice - each adventure is a connection to self and source. 

Lisa Metz + Ana Sosa - “Let’s cut the small talk, tell us what feeds your soul”

Livona Ellis - Took a small amount of time, To write this “Haiku”

Makadi - Even the smallest reveal of authentic expression can awaken and inspire the largest amount of people- the world

Mark Atherton - “See simplicity in the complicated, seek greatness in small things. In the Universe, the difficult things are done as if they were easy.” ~Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching

Susan Nase - Susan performs both Scottish Highland dance and American Rhythm Tap dance. It is a small world after all. 

Tonye Aganaba - is a visual artist, singer/songwriter and storyteller with a small obsession with dance. An MS diagnosis left her unable to dance, but she lives vicariously through the vibrant and colourful dance community.
