Animal Memory - Helen Glavin
" It is the most inspiring and evocative voice-music for the dances of the inner goddess/elements. Helen can make us move from the inner being, and when I dance she moves me as my breathing. She has put voice to my movement and new rhythm to my body, something that comes from the entrails of the earth and incarnates the intimate spirit of human nature........ Thankyou Helen !!!! "
