"What's the F***ing Point?" — ep 31 — Travis Cooper on the power of authentic movement

Travis Cooper is one of those people you can tell is a dancer just be seeing him walk down the street.

He carries himself with such presence, grace, and fierceness — and as I mention on the intro, has a truly magnetic (except LOL I said infectious because I couldn't think of the right word, ehhh #getvaccinated and use “magnetic” instead 😜) personality to match.

I was delighted to get to know Travis in this interview, and I know you'll feel the same way! We talk about his spiritual path from Christianity to atheism to seeking out what a more authentic spirituality, and how his emotional and spiritual growth have impacted the way he views his dharma as a dancer and choreographer.
