Flesh and Conflict

Our Mission❗


Heart & Soul Dance Company is dedicated to touching hearts, changing lives, and improving the health of

others through music, dance and fine arts. We believe in getting involved in our communities

and asking questions that others overlook, in order to improve the culture and quality of our local

communities! Ranging from refining and delivering more educational outlets, to helping solve

the issues of hunger, natural disaster relief, homelessness, cancer research, and so many others,

 Heart & Soul Dance Company is dedicated to building up the community and bringing everyone

together because we are greater together, then we are separate.

     At Heart & Soul Dance Company, we are currently working on a project that raises awareness

and educates on very real everyday adversities that negatively affect ourselves, our communities, and our loved ones. We are putting on a production, called Flesh And Conflict, which touches at

the heart of some very important topics and adversities, exemplifying their effect on individuals inside and

outside of our communities, by way of dance.

     Flesh And Conflict is created and designed to build up productive discussions and pull us all closer together rather than divide us up into toxic cliques and factions. WHY?! Because divided we are like wet notebook paper, easily torn apart and mangled....but together we are a raging ocean flooding our communities, and ultimately our world, with UNITY one production and act of genuine kindness at a time. WE ARE GREATER TOGETHER THAN WE ARE SEPARATELY!

     We Thank You in advance for your time, kindness, and genuine consideration,

Melvin A.C Howell

   Thank You in advance,
