Getting ready to go dance with a new-to-me group of folks at a new-to-me venue.
Will they and I be a good fit? Will the movement and I dovetail in that magical and sometimes transcendent practice of dance?
I don’t know.
And although I hope so, even the mere prospect of being part of a movement community, of connecting to others and to something inexpressible, for a moment, has lifted me up today. As it does every day I dance.
A practice and an offering that is both delving and uplifting.
If nothing else, tonight, among us, in that space and radiating out into the Universe, the healing, expansive and transformative power of dance.
The message: Dance Is Here. And here. And here….
“The dancer believes that his art has something to say which cannot be expressed in words or in any other way than by dancing…
… there are times when the simple dignity of movement can fulfill the function of a volume of words. There are movements which impinge upon the nerves with a strength that is incomparable, for movement has power to stir the senses and emotions, unique in itself…
This is the dancer’s justification for being, and his reason for searching further for deeper aspects of his art.~Doris Humphrey
