part 4 - me and others

……………………………………………………………………..

With whom do you talk to most about movement? my dance teacher and others that I dance with, I'm not a professional, but I've been going to class once a week for a couple of years.

What is the most trans-formative conversation you have ever had with someone about movement?  I don't know about the single most trans-formative conversation, but there are things my dance teacher says that stick with me and change the way I view everyday objects. I find myself relating the movement of 'things' to the movement of my own body. I feel like I'm building a tool box of inspiration for ways to move by looking at everyday things. I like that. I'll list some, they are funny out of context:


'move your arm back like you are winding up one of those elastic band airplanes and then let it go through space!'

'when you come back up move like your are a bottle opener, as arms come down head goes up'

'as you dance see what you can see in the room, make it a point to look. see see see.'

'you are a clock going anti-clock wise'

'as you move your spine forward in space imagine someone is pulling you tail bone back to earth'

'like you are bending forward over a railing, leave that space'
