She Dances With 12,000 Bees on Her Body

January 4, 2016 - Sara Mapelli brings new meaning to the term "queen bee" as she dances with a swarm of bees blanketing her body. While wearing the queen of the hive, Mapelli is surrounded by 12,000 bees, creating what she describes as a meditative atmosphere of movement, energy, and sound. Mapelli uses this dance to build awareness of the importance of bees and all of nature and to allow people who are scared of bees to confront their fears. She sees the dance as a tool for healing during group "energy realignment" sessions she hosts.
