Our Woman of the Week this week is our fabulous Artistic Director...BEKA ARTH!! There aren't words enough to embody the beauty and strength that define Beka. She is the depth and marrow that flow through Soul 2 Sole. Her creativity and leadership push all of us, both as dancers, and as women of faith operating within an artistic setting. (#chiseled) Beka's unique blend of artistry, humor, discipline, and gentle humility make her something special indeed. And I've never met someone who loves cookies more than her in all my life. :) Getting to know Beka over the last two years has been an unrivaled privilege and joy. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am better for knowing her. She could be dancing pretty much anywhere in the world, but she's chosen to invest her heart and her talent right here in S2S. We are so so grateful for our Beka!!
If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
I would love to be a bird! Just to be able to soar :)
What is one thing on your bucket list?
One thing on my bucket list would be to climb Mt Everest. I know it may seem very unrealistic, and it very well may be, but just to say that you were at the top of the world would be pretty cool!!
Why do you dance?
Dance for Jesus and LIVE!! Plus the poem by Albert Einstein pretty much sum it up too :) "We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams."
If you could sum up your life in a 6 word memoir, what would it say?
Jesus. Steven. Elijah. Isaiah. Dance. Cookies. :)
How have you seen God use dance in your life?
God has literally used dance to bring my son Isaiah to me! His birthmother is a dancer herself and if it were not for this, I'm pretty sure we would not be connected. From the moment I first stepped into a dance studio, God had this path set for me. :)
