Kaeshi is a rarified artist, in deep possession of her humanity and integrity. She is generous, compassionate, intelligent, intensely creative, community minded, and perhaps what I admire most, ego balanced. Kaeshi Chai is a gift.

It is PURE delight to work with Kaeshi and her wonderful students. I entered the program as an elder needing to add more dancing and performing spirit in her life and have found the inspiration and support I needed in PURE programs. My highlight experience thus far was writing and performing “I Dare Red,” a monologue inspired by our PURE study of the book Daring Greatly. I look forward to future collaborations with PURE.

The workshop and performance were an emotional rescue. PURE is an experience in dance that should be seen around the world to help inspire self love, acceptance and growth in women.

The Reflections performance tonight was really powerful and moving. Thank you for what you are doing. Every young woman should see this program. It is transformative!

I look forward to going to PURE rehearsal every week because it relaxes me and is a nice break from the stress of my everyday life.

It is truly impressive what a positive impact this program has had on so many women’s lives. You are all an inspiration!
