Peggy Baker

Artistic Director, Choreographer, Dancer


“A week at Valleyview, slipped in between two demanding projects, allowed for an immersion in solitude and nature: the rejuvenation of breathing fresh, fragrant air; the re-tuning of my ears to birdsong, wind and thunder; and the resetting of my internal clock to the simplicity of circadian rhythm. I got work accomplished, but perhaps more importantly, I was able to let my mind wander and catch a glimpse of what is going under the surface. To any artist desiring peace and quiet to work, or needing to step outside of the usual demands of your life to catch your breath and get your bearings, I recommend this exceptional retreat.”
