I received "Awakening to the Dance" as a gift. I found it to be a beautifully written and engaging memoir with honest and lively dialogue. Ms. Spruce's memoir paralleled my own life in many ways. I also grew up in a family that did not recognize the value of a creative life. As many young women growing up in that era, (myself included) she wanted it all; a job that fulfilled her, a loving respectful relationship, a meaningful spiritual life plus the freedom to explore and live an authentic life filled with creativity and self expression. Georganne Spruce takes us on her journey of a dancer, teacher and writer ...as each new location,  challenge, spiritual teaching or delight unfolds. Sometimes she was the student and sometimes she was the teacher. We are standing beside her as she reflects on past experiences and life lessons and noticing how fear can hold us back from following our dreams and keep us from living the life we desire. I feel grateful to have read Ms. Spruce's lovely memoir. Her book gave me wonderful insights and spiritual tools.  She inspired me to live a joyful life as I continue to overcome my own fears and follow my dreams. Donna Ensor, Asheville North Carolina USA
