To Give in Dance

faculty_dance08-2928

Consider the beautiful moment in this photo. As the dancer is lost in that moment it is when she is most found, and we can best connect with her and what she is communicating. But I also feel that this photo also illustrates an example of perfect giving in dance. By one’s authentic commitment, by giving one’s all from the deepest place, a dancer gives to her audience what they came to experience, and gives back to the art of dance.

Losing all sense of self-consciousness
Awareness of your privilege to dance
Seeing beyond yourself
Being truthful
No pretense
Courage
Heart
Vow

Don’t wait for the stage. Connect your body and heart in every class, every combination, every moment you dance.
