Dance Performance:

Word Dances: Poetry in Motion

Sample performance: Katie Bruckbauer performs "Two Birds," one of the poems in Time to Soar.


Barb performs "Swans."


Barb and Katie dance to Backyard Birds and a Bard.

Word Dances: Poetry in Motion is a unique fusion of poetry, art, and modern dance using selections from Katie Bruckbauer's new book, Time to Soar: Word Dances and Bird Songs for Every Season. ​

The poetry and artistic interpretations in the performance provide meaningful and thought-provoking messages of healing and peace suitable for all ages.

The dances were choreographed and are performed by Katie and Barb Wieland, along with a small troupe of dancers. Katie and Barb were performing dancers and instructors for almost 30 years at two former Fargo dance studios, Mahkahta Dance Theater and 8th Street Studio of Dance, of which they were part owners.

The performance is an excellent alternative to a traditional speaker for many types of events,  ,such as conferences, retreats, banquets, senior living centers, library story times, churches, school presentations, Christmas parties, art galleries, and many more.
