The Gift

I was given a life changing gift from a student and a friend (you know who you are!) and I thought sharing the resulted transformation would be a nice way of paying it forward. The gift is a set of ideas that I’ve been experimenting with and it starts with the simple cliché of “seeing…

Right brain dancing

Have you ever felt that when you’re trying really hard to learn some movement it’s just not happening for you but if you decide to not think about it in your head, your body takes over and just knows what to do? I get to take a lot of technique dance classes these days as…

Class is staring in 20 minutes. Everything is ready but I feel like there’s no oxygen in my lungs. There’s no way that I can teach. There’s nothing for me to give. I make myself sit down on a chair. I guide myself to feel the ground under my feet and connect to my breath.…
