Emory sophomore and dance student Emma Neish attended class and now shares with us what she learned from her encounter with Noa.
I have so much respect for the talented individuals who not only make art, but also incorporate it into their life. Noa’s movement and teaching immediately identified her as one of those gifted artists.

Her advice resonated with me because after an hour of experimenting with weight transfer, rolling and falling I felt a new ease to my dancing. The feeling of effortlessness in dance is freeing and this inspired new movement and experimentation. Her suggestion to continue with a movement became clearer and instead of returning to my familiar affinities, I began to push the limits of weight transfer and balance.
This class definitely inspired "aha!" moments and improved my self-awareness, creativity, and attention to connectivity.
What great insight!
