September greetings lovelies! 🍂
I’ve been quietly nursing some bruised kidneys (ouch yes, but I’m good 😓👍). I haven’t danced in about two weeks, was in need of a good movement session, and felt ready to gauge my healing and see where I stand against this chrome pole adversary of mine. 💃
I’ve received a lot of comments of late saying this (my channel) is where they come to unwind, relax, and breathe after a hard day or crud times. To those of you to whom this relates, I’m honored to provide that space for you. The truth is, this is also where I often come to reset, work through, breathe, and regroup. The dance floor is where I do a lot of processing and offers a great space to work out those mental (and physical) niggles.
Freestyle dance, especially raw footage with all its audible foot sweeps and pole squeaks, I feel is the most relatable content I could create and offer to you. Freestyling offers a visual truth of what’s going on in mind and body at that moment and (hopefully) takes the audience along for the journey. The story is a collection of rich, organic, passionate, honest, and sometimes brutal raw energy moments strung together with unearthed truths of our personal history. It is exposing to tell a story with your body. Dance is a commitment to uncover and expose, layer after layer, that which lies underneath.
This is my story right now, raw and unedited (almost 25 minutes of it so I hope you brought popcorn 😂🍿): the process (of coming back after being reminded of my mortality 🤣), with all its natural noises, breaks, ponderings, and happenings. Those of you who dance will feel me: the “should I try this”, “hmmm, that was not so bad”, and “OMG that Fu(#!NG hurt! We are NOT ready for that!” moments all included.
Really though, it felt so GOOOOOOOD! 😂💃
The only thing I couldn’t leave in was the aroma of lavender and silver fir essential oils swirling around the room as I danced (so imagine lavender and sweet pine needles by an open fire and you’ve got it all. 😂🌬️✨).
