Our well-being is at stake

Dear Editor,

Wednesday is an important day for the Aspen Club – and for those of us here who study to advance our mind-body well-being. Aspen has been my home for more than three decades. I am an international dance/theatre artist and have studied the movement arts in many countries for five decades. In all the changes that have occurred in my valley (many of which I have fought for and lost) – the classes at the Aspen Club are the one, lasting, professional/performance experience that I still have.

In the past two weeks I have studied with three teachers who have each taught me something I never learned before. Through the most challenging times in all my years here (I direct a nonprofit), these classes are my one saving grace.

To be very honest, I have not studied the impact of what they are asking to build, but the circumstances of the Club are such that they need a form of expansion to sustain their remarkable commitment to this community. I urge all involved to work with the Aspen Club to make something work for us all.

Sarah Pletts
