Beacon Hill dance studio fosters safe space for diversity

I covered a local Seattle dance studio, Culture Shakti, that promotes diversity and inclusivity in all forms—be it through race, age, body type, etc. Because dance is such a visual topic, I challenged myself not only to write an article for the South Seattle Emerald but to also produce a video highlighting the interviews I conducted and classes I watched at Culture Shakti.
