"I can't put into words how much you've impacted my life. You have brought this light to my light that Iacked. You truly inspire me so much, you are one the most amazing human beings I've had the pleasure of coming across. "
- Diana, Teen Dance Leader
"Working with Axé is always a transformative experience. We have collaborated on multiple projects from dance workshops to Shakespeare. Axé brings a creative light to all that she does. She meets each person “where they are” as an individual, performer and person. Her work is always organic, unique, and beautiful. It is and always has been clear to me that dance is Axé tool to empower. Students love her and her work!!! I would recommend her in any situation when working, playing, creating or connecting with people and communities. "
- Lee Lee, Summer Theatre Director, Kent High School
" A place you got to both learn new things and let go of your thoughts so that you’re capable of feeling free and stress free. Axé brought me back up and showed me what dance is really about. If it wasn't for the passionate, kind loving Axé, I wouldn't have ever danced again. She taught me to love dance on a completely different level and taught me that dance is something I need in my life."
- Keely, Dancer, 18
"I danced last night in my kitchen. I've been doing that a lot lately. Just getting into movement and freedom within my body. It started with you (Axé) and Sol Vida. Much Love!"
- Mamie, Grown A$$ Woman
"You (Axé) are one of the single most inspiring beings I ever known. You are so inspiring, it's kind of crazy. Thank you for pushing me. Thank you for all the support."
"Danced my heart out. You inspire me to be the person I am meant to be."
- Kameisha, Unwind + Grind Veteran
"I liked how the people were nice and it was a drama free zone. Because usually at dance classes there can be some drama."
"Unwind and Grind is something special-- the only dance class I have experienced that is not about how you appear, but rather how you feel in your body."
- U + G Veteran
"Ya girls going to (college) as a dance major for a BFA in Performing Arts. I want to thank you again for how much you inspired me to follow my dreams and make me feel like I could truly be a dancer and do what I manifest. I'm so proud to know that you are one of my mentors and friends."
