I like to move and I am always seeking it. Ask my mom. She can tell you stories about how I moved and used my feet constantly playing with a ball in my crib. And… well, just ask her.
I became a physical therapist because of my interest in movement. From there it was natural to expand my practice to include the movement wisdom of the Feldenkrais Method ®. Then there is the music. How can you not want to move to a certain beat or to the infectious rhythms of African drums? I just can’t help myself. Such fun! For me, dancing is to keep on moving, creating steps while listening to the music.
The other day, I did a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lesson on the floor. It was about opening up the hip by turning the spine and pelvis to lengthen the hip adductor; the inner thigh muscles. I had a great time with this. The next day I happened to be moving to some music and before I knew it, I was opening my hip, lengthening the adductors while turning and even jumping with it. The freedom of doing all of this to music, what a blast! I can’t tell you how good that feels.
What else can I do but share such fun, exciting movements with you?
Stay tuned. This particular dance movement will come back in a future live or prerecorded work shop. If you wish to be included in my email list for future live/in person work shop notifications or periodic newsletters, you can contact me via https://www.soweknowwecandance.com/contact.
Workshops most likely will be starting up again in the fall of 2021 for Boulder, CO. You can look at the SHOP page of my website https://www.soweknowwecandance.com/shop to see what is currently available for prerecorded Workshops and Awareness Through Movement lessons.
In the meantime. Keep on moving and keep on dancing!
