Sandra Joy Agustin, guest practitioner
Sandy grew up in South Minneapolis, the youngest of 8 children born to a Pinoy immigrant and Euro-mix mother. Her first language was movement; studying Hawaiian dance at the age of 9 and teaching it by the age of 10. She grew up surrounded by animals, siblings, neighbors, gardens, Filipino dance, and the sounds of Motown. She is a lifelong dancer, creative activist and lover of all sentient and living things. She has collaborated with children as a teaching artist, with adults through teaching dance and exercise and is a longtime volunteer for animals and considers herself a “cre8tive navigator”, helping individuals and groups move from where they are to where they need to be, whether a nonprofit or a family experiencing a loved one’s transition into death. She is a master facilitator, using artistic tools to help shift energy, embody ideas and build understanding among people.  Her artistic work has been shown on the stages of the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, The Southern Theater, Ballet Folklorico de Amalia Hernandez, Madison Civic Center, Mixed Blood Theater, the University of Minnesota, Macalester College, Augsburg College and Caponi Art Park as well as others. She has been a panelist for the McKnight and Jerome Foundations and has consulted groups of spiritual leaders to those using funding to make radical shift in the philanthropic landscape.
