Lucy Wallace is a Boulder-based dance instructor who founded Dance to Be Free, a non-profit organization whose mission is to radically improve the lives of incarcerated women through the healing power of dance. With a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology as well, she designs her high energy classes to help women move and feel safe in their bodies again. To empower women and promote further healing, she also leads teacher trainings to keep prison programs sustainable.
In this episode, Lee and Lucy share an honest, heartfelt conversation about her journey, how to be a disruptive force for good and white privilege. She speaks to why she feels an even deeper calling to bring her work to the South and despite the steep learning curve of heading up a non-profit organization, her answer is always, “Why wouldn’t I do it?” Her wit, big heart, and advocacy for this traumatized population will leave you inspired and reminded that when we become activated by our passion and purpose, there is no reason NOT to do it!
