In March of 2015, Lucy founded Dance To Be Free and formed a 501c3 along with her board of Directors. Dance To Be Free’s mission is to share the healing power of dance with women in prison nationwide.
Lucy‘s Psychological background led to the birth of Dance To Be Free due to the therapeutic and cathartic quality of her teaching style.
Their program launched at the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility in July of 2015 and has grown into weekly classes and a teacher-training program in Pueblo, CO, NE, WA and AR. Over 150 inmates have been trained as dance teachers giving them a tangible skill as they complete their sentences and return to their communities!
