I have danced before but that did not prepare me for the experience of DANCE SIX-O. What has surprised (and delighted) me is the closeness of interaction with my fellow dancers. There is an intensity in our dance which is something I just don’t come across in everyday life. And this a delight! In a world where we are increasingly isolated at any number of levels. The opportunity to communicate so profoundly is welcome – and healing – and therapeutic. Then there’s another level of communication and interaction – and that’s with myself. My artistic expression has been with words or music – and this is my first opportunity to use my body to express myself. Again, it takes me to levels I have not been before. It’s exhausting, exhilarating, and leaves me feeling very renewed.
