Pictures of the Possible as the Golden Bridge and Golden Girls Global Leaders Move the World

Performance. Film. Fundraising. The MUSE.

Dairy Arts Center, Boulder, CO, USA.

Golden Bridge is dedicated to our collective liberation through the birthing of embodied, global leaders and the bridging of peoples from diverse walks and ways.

After 35 years, our work within Golden Bridge has come full circle. Babies that were once dancing in their mother's womb are now epic leaders inspiring individuals and communities to creatively rise up in these radically challenging times. Five generations of this work ripple out into the world.

This beloved community event, Full Circle, shares the inspiring cross cultural, real life stories of resilience and peacemaking of our leaders. Through dance, film, song, and poetry, their vibrant energy will fill the stage and stir your soul. Heart opening. A picture of what is possible when we unwind our trauma and move into collaboration and innovation across inner and outer conflict zones. Meet these leaders who came of age on our dance floors and are now adult pillars in their own communities.  

Produced by Golden Bridge in collaboration with Golden Girls Global and Melissa Michaels Movement.

move

Using dance and movement as method, we invite girls to explore, experience, and express the vast landscapes of their changing bodies, hearts, and souls.

feel

We provide young people with tools to unpack, harness, and liberate their feelings, along with giving them a pathway to empathically and compassionately connect with others.

express

Artistic activities that include the head, the heart, and the body are imbedded in every girl’s group, opening the channel for the creative life force to move through each girl.

cycle

Girls learn about the creative potential of their fertility and the sacred and science of self-care through culturally sensitive, inclusive, and empowering educational experiences.

emerge

Girls are celebrated as they come home to themselves in creative confidence and vision through the time-honoring rite of passage that puberty heralds and young adulthood completes.

connect

Girls ask questions and learn about healthy intimacy and sexuality with skillful mentors, as friendships are cultivated and tended with care and devotion.

act

Girls are inspired to dream and mobilized to collaborate in innovative and soulful ways with respect for their environment and the world inside and around them.

Meet Our Global Leaders

Liberating the creative life force is, in fact, revolutionary. If a young person can dream something and know that they have the capacity to create something from nothing, they have both the awareness and internal muscle to do what their soul calls them to do.

Golden Girls Global Founder

I relate to my training as one would relate to a compass and a map. One requires a lifelong practice of orienting to what is true through my own embodiment. The other guides me in ever-changing terrain by providing a lineage of wisdom, tools, practices, and principles to reference when I need council.

Golden Girls Global Leader

The dance is a way for me to explore my inner landscape: processing emotions, reconnecting to my needs, learning my boundaries, developing self awareness, and deepening my connection to the environment. The dance constantly helps me to create inner space, and it provides a safe and sacred container for myself and others which allows us to move through challenging situations and processes.

Rites of Passage Ancestor

I am on a mission to create the best form of myself, actualized into being the wildest dreams of my ancestors. I have become, and I will never stop becoming. I am thankful for this community of global sisterhood and the work that bridges our very different practices and communities. May we all continue to rise up.

I identify as gender fluid. Sometimes I feel very feminine, sometimes very masculine, and sometimes I feel neutral.

15 year old Golden Girls Global participant

I find working ongoing with the girls has allowed the opportunity to stretch their capacity to speak authentically and listen from the heart. Over the years, I have seen a softening and a welcoming in that space.
